Oluwatoni (Toni) Aluko, MPH, is a rising second year medical student at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. Originally a native of the quaint state of Maryland, Toniearned her undergraduate degree in Kinesiological Sciences, with minors in Spanish and Community Health, and her Master of Public Health in Community Health Education from the University of Maryland, College Park. When she isn’t perusing through textbooks, Toni enjoys traveling, cooking, sewing, and working out.
Toni currently serves as her class Community Service Chair, and is an avid volunteer in her community through Meharry’s student-run free clinic, Habitat for Humanity, and other local organizations. She also serves as a National Global Health Chair for the American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA). She ultimately plans to enter the field of primary care, and hopes to inspire more medical students, particularly those historically underrepresented in medicine, to engage in global health service and leadership experiences.
