Hello everyone! My name is Lisa Chan. I’m a native of Salt Lake City, and I grew up speaking Toisanese and some Cantonese at home. I studied chemistry and Chinese language & literature as an undergrad at the University of Utah. After working for two years as a lab technician and nurse aide, I moved out east to attend Penn State University for medical school where I became involved in various organizations including a student-run free clinic, geriatric interest group, and mentoring program for at-risk youth. In my free time, I like to draw, paint, run, hike, and dabble in rock climbing. I also have a dog trapped inside a cat’s body named Toby whom I have trained to do various tricks.
