Matthew Busch is a third year medical student at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine in Scranton, Pennsylvania class of 2021. In 2017 he graduated from The University of Scranton with a Bachelor in Science in neuroscience and biomathematics, with minors in philosophy and biochemistry. He enjoys playing soccer, listening to audiobooks, and completing puzzles in his free time. After graduating medical school, Matthew would like to pursue a career in Pediatrics.
I began my journey with the Deaf community before coming to medical school starting with a basic American Sign Language class just to learn a few routine signs. I continued with the American Sign Language Club at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, hoping to learn more medical signs for any future interactions with Deaf patients. Through the club, I recently met an incredible four-year-old boy named John at a local community event to meet Peppa Pig.
We can all make a difference in the quality of health care provided to deaf patients and that difference starts with you.

My name is Michelle and I am a second year medical student at the University of California, Riverside. I hope to become a pediatrician in the Riverside area and to use sign language to communicate with deaf patients I encounter. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with family & friends, rock climbing, & hiking.
