Hi! My name is Mya Robbins. I'm a future medical student and I'm currently interning at Eastland Medical Center. I also run my school's Biomedical Club. I read your recent article on robotic assisted surgery outcomes. I would love to ask you some questions about your career journey if you have any openings in your calendar.
