Ashley McCormick is currently a second-year medical student in Philadelphia, PA. Prior to medical school, Ashley attended Yale University, where she graduated with a BA in Humanities and was a member of the Division I lacrosse team. Her passion for public health and education led her to volunteer abroad in Uganda and Haiti. In Uganda, Ashley had the unique privilege of coaching the first Ugandan National Women’s lacrosse team in addition to teaching English to primary school children. In Haiti, Ashley volunteered with a medical relief organization in an effort to provide access to healthcare and health education to underserved populations.
Upon graduating from Yale, she dedicated two years toward conducting clinical research in Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), a rare and progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting both children and adults. Specifically, her FA research interests range from the impact of diabetes on neurologic function and performance, all the way to the investigation of long-term outcomes of cardiac transplantation in the setting of neurodegenerative disease. In her spare time, Ashley enjoys volunteering at an LGBTQ center as an STI counselor, spending time with her pup and fiancée, testing out local coffee shop brews, and drafting her children’s book.
