Panelist Highlight:

Freddy Jacome
Freddy was raised in the Logan Square and Humboldt Park neighborhoods. Growing up in Chicago exposed him to the various systemic inequities and forms of oppression that people of his community face. He decided to pursue medicine so that it would place him in a unique position that allows him to help bridge health disparities while also being a positive role model to other people of color. He attended the University of Illinois at Chicago and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. After attaining his degree, he spent his gap year acting as the Vice Chair of the community organization ENLACE, participating in research, coaching football, and coordinating a mentorship program at L@s GANAS. He enrolled in the University of Illinois College of Medicine and is also a part of the Urban Medicine program.
