Nathaniel graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in music as well as minors in biology and chemistry. As an undergraduate he volunteered with the Alzheimer’s Project, where he learned he had an interest in working with the elderly community. Nathaniel also worked at North Star Reach, where kids with serious medical conditions could have a “spectacularly average” camp experience. As the leader for music and drama activities, he was able to combine his passions for music and medicine to produce positive change. After graduation, Nathaniel was selected to work as a clinical assisting student in the Dermatology Research and Practice Scholars program at Dermatology Associates of Tallahassee. That role allowed him to understand the needs of the Big Bend area and taught him how to work as a member of a health-care team. Nathaniel is currently a second-year medical student at the Florida State University College of Medicine. His interests include healthcare in rural communities and LGBTQIA+ health.
