    Melinda is a Pediatric Neurology resident at UCSF. She is enthusiastic about working towards creative, cross-disciplinary strategies to address health disparities, chronic care management and childhood trauma. Melinda is an alumnus of UC Irvine School of Medicine, where she developed her passion in pediatrics as an avid volunteer with children’s organizations. She also conducted research evaluating the use of dance as a rehabilitation strategy for children with cerebral palsy, and implemented a novel medical education curriculum on trauma-informed care that has been presented to trainees across the state. Prior to medical school, at UC San Diego, Melinda completed her undergraduate studies in biology, dance and music, and a Master’s degree in stress neurobiology studying the gut-microbiome’s regulation of mood, learning and memory.
