Anthony “Antho” Diep Rosas is pursuing an MD at the University of California, San Fransisco School of Medicine in the Program in Medical Education for the Urban Underserved (PRIME-US). Anthony roots from the working-class, resilience-powered urban neighborhood of Compton-Willowbrook in South Los Angeles, California. He is a first-generation college graduate, having graduated from Kalamazoo College with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a concentration in Community and Global Health.
Anthony has led community-based research projects in the US and abroad, where he has advanced community-informed policies and programs that promote health equity. He has studied healthcare systems in Thailand, Japan, and Costa Rica, where he was inspired by each country’s emphasis on preventative and public health. Anthony believes that transformative healthcare reform in the US must be centered around strong community-led healthcare systems focused on primary and preventative care. In his leisure he raps, writes poetry, reads, performs Chinese Lion Dancing, spends time with his spouse, and enjoys fostering new friendships and “homes” around the world.
