After graduating from Temple’s School of Medicine, Crystal Brown intends to use her education to help the disadvantaged in Southern California. At Temple, she helped bring health fairs to a local elementary school, leading nutrition programs and teaching about alcohol abuse. While community service chair of Temple’s Student National Medical Association chapter, Brown started a program to educate black men about high rates of hypertension. Her advice for young doctors-to-be: “Keep your eyes on the prize and stay focused. If this is what you want to do, eight years in the grand scheme of things is nothing.”
