Dennis Wang

Dennis Wang (CC’ 14, EPH ’15) is double majoring in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry and Global Affairs, and is also studying the Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases with a Global Health Concentration at the Yale School of Public Health. He hopes to work in the Washington, DC area after Yale either in government or health work before applying to medical school. After four summers and countless hours in labs at George Mason University, the NIH, and the Yale Stem Cell Center, Dennis lived in Rwanda for a summer and worked with Spark MicroGrants, doing monitoring and evaluation to better understand health and international development in general. He is currently interested in non-communicable diseases such as alcoholism, smoking, and mental disorders in China, a developing country with significant potential in improving public health. Dennis works as a Master’s Aide in Calhoun College and is involved with conference planning for the Yale International Relations Association and writing for the Yale Scientific Magazine. Dennis loves to travel, having visited Canada, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Austria, China, Korea, India, Ecuador, Honduras, Rwanda, Uganda, and Burundi in his time at Yale, and also reads the news obsessively.
