How Penn's SUMR Program Changed One Student's Life
(Viewing time: 5:30) In 2006, Brown University sophomore Amina Massey spent the summer at the University of Pennsylvania as one of thirteen students in the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics' Summer Undergraduate Minority Research Program (SUMR). In 2013 as a PhD student in her final year at the University of California, San Francisco, Massey returned to Penn to discuss how that SUMR experience -- a three-month, mentor-led immersion in the field of health services research -- dramatically changed her life. She is currently working on a PhD dissertation about her study of how religious beliefs affect African American women's health-care-related attitudes and behaviors and intends to continue pursuing related investigations after graduation.
