Providing developing countries with sustainable and cost-effective medical devices.

Growing up in Jamaica, Damel witnessed the devastating impact of inadequate access to contemporary, high quality medical instruments. Today, this is her source of inspiration to become a medical engineer. She aspires to bridge the gap by leading the way on worldwide adoption of affordable, environmentally friendly medical equipment and devices, with an emphasis on reducing healthcare inequities in developing countries. Damel has actively sought out opportunities to build the skills to understand the health and wellness of her community. She was a student equity scholar and intern at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, worked as a pharmacist’s assistant,  and has volunteered in several capacities to contribute to social causes such as food insecurity, cancer research, and civic engagement. She actively works to build confidence in her peers through her leadership on the debate team, badminton team, and student ambassador group.
