Christina Wang is a rising junior. She is majoring in public policy and is interested in health policy and health disparities, especially with the high incidence and prevalence of hepatitis B in Asians and Asian Pacific Islanders. She is grateful for the research support she received in finding out Bay Area physicians' adherence to proper hepatocellular carcinoma screening with routine alpha fetoprotein and imaging. In her spare time, she loves playing guitar, baking, and cooking.
