Elaine Chen, SPT | Candidate for SSIG Director (2021-2022)

Based in Chicago, Illinois.

I am interested in women’s health and pelvic health. As a student, I will be doing one of my clinical education in women’s health setting. I’ve noticed that this area of practice is growing fast, and I would like to learn more and advocate pelvic health to more peer students. As one of the directors of the student SIG, I would collaborate with the other directors in organizing different events and carrying out projects. I am good at keeping things organized and reminding people about upcoming events.
