Lotus Alphonsus

Medical Student, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry

I am currently a medical student at Western University and am interested in global health and sexual health. Having a background working with survivors of sexual assault and human trafficking, I am passionate about trauma informed care and advocacy. I am particularly interested in HIV prevention and treatment, increasing health literacy and hope to work towards improving inequities faced by marginalized populations. When I’m not working, you can catch me playing basketball, tattooing clients, or travelling.

I am very excited about joining this incredible team and having the opportunity to be a part of novel infectious disease research!
