Research Assistant

Sereena Jivraj is a second-year medical student at the TCU & UNTHSC School of Medicine in Fort Worth, Texas. She graduated from Emory University with a B.S. in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology in 2019. Sereena has had a longstanding interest in Maternal and Child Health as well as surgery and obstetrics. In recent years, from both the media and working alongside an OB/GYN, she’s become frustrated with high U.S. maternal mortality rates, especially given our country’s status as a first-world nation. As such, she hopes to help tackle these disparities as well as general disparities faced by those in lower socioeconomic classes throughout her medical career. Sereena hopes her experiences with the MOTHER Lab will provide her with the knowledge and tools to educate others on implicit biases and the vital topic of maternal health disparities.
