Annie Le is a graduating senior from Earl Warren College with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and minors in History and Healthcare Social-Issues. Annie will head to UCLA’s Master of Public Health program in the fall. In addition to her multidisciplinary studies, she has dedicated her time at UC San Diego to grassroots organizing, policy change, and social and environmental sustainability efforts.
Throughout her undergraduate career, Annie served as a director and member of the Student Sustainability Collective (SSC) at UC San Diego. She contributed to managing the Sustainability Resource Center, developing the staff and intern program, and building networks on and offcampus. In her role as a campaign director, she led initiatives emphasizing dirty energy, the industrial food system, and public health. Her work has included presenting workshops, coordinating panels, circulating petitions, facilitating coalition-building, and providing actionable opportunities. She played an integral role in negotiating the policy to cease the sale of bottled water in dining halls and the elimination of styrofoam use by campus vendors, as well as securing funding for hydration stations.
While Annie is best known on campus for her tenure with the SSC, she has also worked with numerous student organizations. She is committed to solidarity work and multi-issue activism. Her involvement has spanned issues including access and affordability of education, workers’ rights, global health, and universal health care. As co-president of foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC), Annie aimed to increase awareness about health disparities among vulnerable communities and mobilize students to work toward health security for all, locally and globally. To encourage cross-collaboration and highlight UC San Diego’s history of student activism, she was a lead coordinator for two “Dis-Orientation” events and “Radical Rush Week” along with the Cooperative Union and other groups. She also organized dinners and gatherings to foster dialogue among students, staff, and faculty who are active in anti-oppression organizing.
Dr. Leslie Lewis, a public health series lecturer in the Urban Studies & Planning Program, shared, “Annie’s diverse involvement is likely due to the fact that she recognizes the interconnectedness of environmental, social, economic, political and health justice concerns. Annie clearly sees the ways that power and privilege function to produce marginalization associated with race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, disability and citizenship. She is aware of the structural constraints, but remains hopeful, strategic and committed to effecting change for the benefit of all.”
Aldo Rodriguez is a graduating doctoral student receiving a Doctor of Medicine degree. As a future pediatrician, he is leaving UC San Diego to develop his skills in Oakland, California at one of the nation’s premiere Children’s Hospitals. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley in 2007 where he majored in Molecular and Cell Biology – Immunology.
During his time at UC San Diego, he dedicated countless hours to the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) where he served as co-chair and various other roles. As co-chair of LMSA, he helped coordinate the First Annual Diversity Dinner. He also worked with others to help the underserved community of Vista Canyons through the “Border Health Project.” Rodriguez also recently served as the conference coordinator for the 29th Annual Latino Medical Student Association Conference. Rodriguez was recognized by the LMSA – West with an Outstanding Graduating Senior Award for 2013.
Rodriguez found time to give back to UC San Diego and encourage others to think about the medical field. He and three other classmates co-founded the UCSD School of Medicine Mentorship Program in 2010. This group pairs up UCSD School Of Medicine students with self-identified underrepresented undergraduate students at UC San Diego. He also took and elective class, Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies, for three years that focuses on going out to local high schools and teach students various health-related topics. At the end of each quarter the high school students come to UC San Diego’s School of Medicine to be a “doc for a day” and participate in workshops and labs.
Aldo’s nominator, Daniel Wooldridge, a first year medical student, shared that “Aldo is constantly serving on panels, speaking at forums addressing the need for a future generation of well-prepared and highly-skilled doctors. He mentors high school students,undergraduates, post-baccalaureates, newly transferred community college students and pre-medical students with dedication. He knows that the road to and through medical school is difficult, but knows how mentorship and support services have made a difference in his own life.”
