About the Speakers:
Michael Walls is the National President of AMSA and a recent graduate of Touro University, California. He joined AMSA in 2014 as a premed at Cal Poly SLO and first got involved nationally on the Health Policy Team in 2017. Michael was drawn to AMSA because of its dedication to creating physician-leaders and for its long history of advocacy, not just for future physicians, but for its dedication to creating equitable access to healthcare for patients. Michael has strong personal interests in healthcare access, medical education reform, treating substance use disorder, and making change through systemic policy change. He will be starting emergency medicine residency at George Washington University this summer. He is currently living in Connecticut and enjoys rock climbing, home-brewing beer, and hiking with his fiancé and 2 dogs.
Rohini Kousalya Siva is a 4th-year medical student at Eastern Virginia Medical School and is serving as the President-Elect this year at American Medical Student Association (AMSA). She joined AMSA in 2017 as a Medical Master Pre-Med student and honed her skills in advocacy. She is passionate about reproductive health issues and policies ranging from anti-human trafficking efforts to advocacy around abortion access and affirming care for LGBTQIA+ individuals. She wants to continue working on medical education reform, especially in trauma-informed care and interventions, reproductive justice, and public health policies. In her free time, Rohini loves working on her micro art, hiking, and baking.
