Alison Moky is an MPH candidate at Tufts Medical School with a concentration in Health Management and Policy. She currently resides in Westchester County, NY, New York City’s backyard. Her passion to become the intersection of women’s health in third world countries stems from her Cameroonian culture and educational background. With this foundation, Alison co-founded the Benevolence Outreach Inc allowing her to provide solicit donations, school supplies, and toiletries for underprivileged children in Cameroon, Africa. Amongst her passion to help others, Alison immersed herself within the Tufts community throughout her undergraduate career as a research assistant, dancer, and athlete. Alison has a strong passion for research and has worked in the Kao lab at Tufts University using songbirds as a model system in order to study the neural mechanism underlying vocal learning. As an African dancer on COCOA (Children of Cultures of Africa), she created different dances with her team drawing inspiration from different parts of the African diaspora to perform on stage. When she was not on the stage performing with her dance team, you can find her running up and down the lacrosse field as well as competing on the Track & Field team in her undergraduate years at Tufts.
