JT Huynh is a second-year medical student, Community Health Scholar, and academic researcher at Davis School of Medicine. JT worked for a decade as a community organizer and health educator before seeking medical training, serving in organizations focused on social justice and sexual and reproductive health.

JT is thrilled to continue their partnership with community members and improve their Spanish proficiency with the determination to be the best doctor possible.
