Biography

Attended University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine, the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health for a Master’s in Public Health, and the University of Michigan for a Bachelor’s of Arts in Natural Resources and Environment. She also has a Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Academy of Chinese and Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, CA.

Dr. Nguyen shares her story that piqued her interest in medicine in the following statement: “While working with the Peace Corps to address the threat of deforestation by planting 50,000 trees in Ghana, West Africa, a boy who had befriended me and visited daily hadn’t come around for a few days. When I went to check on him at his mother’s hut, I found him nearly dead in her arms from malaria because she did not have the two dollars for choloroquine. I bicycled with the limp child to town to get treatment. The next day he was back on his feet and calling my name.
