Project Kindness Board Members
Hello, my name is Ed. I am a fourth-year student and love living in New York with my wife and son. Project Kindness has been a great way to volunteer, and the advice I’ve received from patients about what they appreciate in their doctor has been a wonderful guide.
My name is Mike and I am a first-year medical student at Einstein, born and raised in Massachusetts. I am a lifelong runner and spend a lot of my time running around and exploring the Bronx and New York. I have found Project Kindness to be a great way to learn more about the people that our school and hospitals serve and to spread positive energy to our patients!
I am a second-year medical student at AECOM and also one of the board members of Project Kindness. I was born and raised in New York City (go Big Apple!) I am an avid food enthusiast and you can always find me in a corner somewhere with my nose buried in a book! Being a Project Kindness volunteer is very meaningful to me. Spending time with patients brightens my day and gives me a sense of satisfaction because it allows me to have a positive influence on someone’s life even in my preclinical years.
My name is Yonatan and I am a second-year MD student from Long Island. As a volunteer for Project Kindness, I try my best to be a comforting presence for patients in their time of need. Through Project Kindness I have been able to see “person behind the patient".
I am a second year medical student, originally from Orange County, California. I enjoy spending time outside in all types of forms: hiking, kayaking, SUP, running. When I'm not on an adventure of my own, I love listening to the tales of others, and Project Kindness has given me that opportunity to connect with patients on a human level. Hearing their stories about their lives and their travels reminds me that medicine centers around the care of another human being.
My name is Elliot and I'm a second year medical student at Einstein. I've enjoyed and gained immensely from my time in Project Kindness. Sitting down with patients and talking about their life-stories or hearing how doctors approach difficult conversations they have with their patients, I appreciate all the more the humanistic element of medicine.
My name is Grant and I’m a first year MD student at Einstein. I’m originally from Tampa, Fl. and went to Harvard University for undergrad where I majored in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology. I’m excited to be more involved in Project Kindness as a member of the Board.
