Joseph Ramirez

Joseph Ramirez is a PCC student who will transfer to PSU in fall 2016 to pursue dual degrees in Biology and Community Health. Joseph’s passion for STEM began with his first research internship through PSU’s Bridges to Baccalaureate Program. Shortly after joining LSAMP in January 2015, he had the opportunities to attend the PNW LSAMP conference at UW, become an LSAMP PCC SURE Scholar, and an NIH BUILD EXITO Scholar. Currently, he contributes to research in the Estes lab (PSU Biology) and serves as a student leader in PSU LSAMP’s STEM Public Outreach Community (SPOC). His long-term academic goals include epidemiological research; Joseph hopes to apply for an MD-PhD Program so that one day he might be in a position to advocate for his community and help eliminate health disparities. Joseph enjoys hanging out with his grandmother, laughing all the time, and biking in the rain.
