Sai Rachakonda, Trinity '24, is a junior at Duke University from Cary, North Carolina majoring in a Program II (self-designed course of study) on Personalized Healthcare Innovation and Policy. Sai is pre-med and hopes to go to medical school after his undergraduate studies. His eventual goal is to be in a leadership role as a clinical neuro-oncologist at a large health center leading a research group on applying health/workflow innovations, novel technologies and therapies, and health policy. Sai's interest in working with the Center stems from his desire to address social determinants of health and work toward a more participatory, patient-centered, and proactive healthcare model to replace our broken system. By working with the Center, Sai aims to gain valuable experience in clinical studies that address social determinants of health, patient-provider interaction, and longitudinal care. Sai is a Margolis Scholar in Health Policy and Management, works with a Bass Connections team that addresses palliative care in end-stage blood cancer patients, leads various student organizations, and is helping write a review paper for the Lefkowitz lab. In his free time, Sai loves spending time with his friends, having fun at social events, lifting weights at the gym, and listening to his favorite artists Playboi Carti and Travis Scott.
