Health Promotion and Behavioral Science
From a young age, Ore Del-Davidson had a passion for medicine. In high school, she pursued this passion by partaking in the health professions pathway at her high school. At the culmination of that program, she was certified as a clinical medical assistant after passing an intensive exam. Ore has a love for community and often shows that through volunteering. In high school, she volunteered at a hospital for several months, where she got to explore her interest in healthcare further. As an older teen, Ore applied and was accepted into a program called Youth in Philanthropy. Through this program, she spent several weekends volunteering at various nonprofits in her county. Some of those organizations included food pantries, shelters for victims of domestic violence, and a day program for adults with learning disabilities. In college, she studies health promotion and behavioral science, where she is educated on disparities faced by social groups with identities like hers. Her studies helped her realize that the impact she wants to make is not only in treating ailments but in advocating and giving a voice to those whose voices often go unheard.
