My name is Nicole Edmonds, and I am a fourth year medical student at the University of Virginia (UVA). I also attended UVA for college where I graduated as an Echols Scholar with a bachelor degree in Spanish. My mom is a dermatologist, so I have grown up fostering an interest in the field of dermatology. For as long as I can remember, I was leaning over her shoulder to help identify skin lesions in the latest dermatology journals or accompanying her to work to meet her patients and see this pathology in person. I am currently the president of the Dermatology Interest Group and have been involved in a multitude of research projects since starting medical school. A particular research interest of mine is health disparities in skin cancer screening and how we can use this research to improve our outreach. I am excited to be a part of the LearnSkin team!
