Christina Chrisman

Christina Chrisman, Brzi recently was awarded a medical scholarship to participate in Mayan Mediical Aid, a global health program in a Mayan village in Guatemala. The base of operations is Santa Cruz La Laguna, Guatemala, a village of approximately 2,000 indigenous and poverty-stricken inhabitants on the northshore of Lake Atitlan. The daily schedule allows time for Spanish language immersion, clinical practice, and medical and dental health promotion in and outside the Clinic. In the program, Christina will work in a permanent medical clinic in the village, gaining experience evalutating and treating patients in Spanish. She hopes to use her Spanish skills and cultural experiences gained in this program to be able to treat Spanish-speaking patients in her own medical practice in the future.

Christina was the 2003 valedictorian of Northview High School and graduated magna cum laude from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 2007 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and minors in Spanish and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She is a second year medical student at Indiana University of Medicine in Indianapolis. She is the daughter of Becky Chrisman, Brazil.
