Hi, I’m Shanna Yeung. Thanks for visiting my website! I’m always interested in projects, initiatives, jobs and educational opportunities so please feel free to contact me.
At the present, I’ve chosen to focus on my interests in learning about the needs of different populations, empowering underserved populations, increasing awareness towards vision loss, and scientific discovery.
I study Pharmacology and Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia, and love my courses in neuroscience, pharmacology, pathology and physiology!
I’m passionate about advocating for inclusivity and accessibility for individuals with disabilities, particularly those with visual impairments and those with learning disabilities.
I have worked with a variety of patient populations in jobs as a Research Assistant working with individuals with Parkinson’s Disease, Care Assistant to a quadriplegic individual, Event Medical Services Attendant and First Nations & Rural Health practicum student.
I’m working on projects to our body of knowledge through research in the field of ophthalmology, neurology, and vision science, and intend to continue research through my career.
I currently aspire to become a clinician-scientist that helps patients of all backgrounds get better and conducts research to improve our understanding of our bodies, diseases and treatments. I would also like to be a physician involved in telemedicine, First Nations health, and charities such as the Foundation Fighting Blindness, Canadian Institute of the Blind and Parkinson’s Society.
For the short term, my goals are to get further involved in research and collaborate with my Vision Health Volunteer team to organize impactful initiatives to spread awareness of ocular conditions and to empower individuals with vision loss.
Thanks for stopping by my site. Please feel free to contact me if there is an opportunity for us to collaborate!
