As an undergraduate in UC’s College of Arts and Sciences, alumna Dr. Nasrien E. Ibrahim was influenced by the diverse community she found herself among. It was, she says, “people from all different cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds. I just loved the melting pot and diversity. Not just the background, but of thought and experience of views on life,” Ibrahim said.
That appreciation for diversity has influenced her career as a cardiologist and her approach to medicine, and caused her to appreciate more deeply social inequities that made her work more challenging. Recently a cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, Ibrahim served on the front lines during the pandemic.
