James Choe

Research Fellow, 2023-2024

Hi, my name is James Choe and I am a medical student at Washington State University. Before medical school, I worked with grassroots organizations to spearhead mobile clinic initiatives that tackled barriers to care for marginalized communities. This work fostered my interest in health equity and health policy, which is integral to my research in dermatology. My research interests also include antibiotic stewardship, acne, the psychosocial impact of dermatologic sequelae, and medical dermatology. In my free time, I love photographing wildlife, skiing, writing poetry, and hiking with my dog.
