About the Speakers:
David Gomez is a Mexican-American, born and raised in East Los Angeles. The son of immigrant parents, David is the first in his family to pursue a college education. He began at East Los Angeles community college where he earned acceptance for transfer to all UC schools. Ultimately, he decided to transfer to USC with a full scholarship where he earned his BS in Neuroscience. During his undergraduate education, David was involved with shadowing opportunities in Keck Hospital of USC’s Neurosurgical department and upon transfer was intimately involved in helping the underserved as a 24/7 on-site resident manager with Trojan Shelter, a non-profit dedicated to providing housing for college students experiencing homelessness. David did not take a gap year after undergrad and was accepted to multiple medical schools but decided to stay at USC on a partial scholarship because of his interest in the patient population and the neurosciences. David is now a second-year medical student who is involved in neurosurgery research, serves as Co-President for the Class of 2025, and aids in mentoring students in his free time. For fun, he enjoys playing music, exercising, and watching films.
