Steering Committee Member of the Week: Ila Nimgaonkar 

Hi all! This week's post will be appreciating one of our wonderful steering committee members, Ila Nimgaonkar! Ila is an MD/PhD student at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and also one of the directors of Promise Clinic. Just like her favorite superhero, Katara, she is compassionate, strong-willed, and committed to any endeavor she takes up, whether it be subbing in for lab on a busy night at clinic or organizing a gala for Promise Clinic's 13th anniversary (shameless plug ðŸ˜‚)! 

1.What is your favorite thing about Promise Clinic?

Impossible to pick one, so here are a few:
- giving back to the community that houses our medical school by serving as a medical safety net for those without health insurance
- the power we have to drive change through student-led initiatives 
- the dedicated and passionate students and faculty I have the privilege of working with

2. If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?

Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender. She's unwilling to compromise her principles and deeply kind, plus she can bend water and heal people!

3. What are you reading right now?

Working on the Dune science fiction good!
