Diana spent her childhood days in New Jersey before moving to Boca Raton, Florida for high school. She is proud to be a triple 'Cane - she completed her undergraduate and medical degrees at The University of Miami, and is now thrilled to be an intern at The "U'!!! While at The Miller School of Medicine, Diana blended her dedication to community service with her leadership and research activities. She served as the research coordinator for Project Serve, a student-run group providing biweekly meals to families at the Ronald McDonald House. She frequently volunteered at the student run free health clinic and health fairs. Recently, she published a peer reviewed publication regarding nutrition and physical activity interventions in HIV-infected individuals. Diana speaks Arabic and Spanglish and has an interest in care of the underserved and global health. She LOVES to travel and has been to six continents - with no intention of ever visiting Antarctica. In her free time she loves running (especially along the water), spinning (only to good music), cooking, baking, shopping, and eating at Miami's multitude of delicious restaurants. She is addicted to chocolate but reports that it fuels her workouts. She decided to stay in Miami because she fell in love with the enthusiastic, compassionate, and hilarious residents and faculty, diverse patient population, and incredible learning experiences - both inside and outside of the hospital.
