Medical students volunteered their time and mentored youth at the recent Exploring Career Pathways program, a lunchtime speaker series offered by the White Plains Youth Bureau at White Plains High School. The program was developed to give students insight into career options. Kevin Hui, Luis Quintero, Humza Jamil, Yedidya Ben-avie, members of the School of Medicine (SOM) Class of 2021 and Giovanna Varuzza, SOM Class of 2020, shared their own personal stories and backgrounds and gave the participants guidance about pre-med courses, applying to medical school, financing a medical education and life as a medical student.
