Kate Blatt, a native of Cincinnati, OH attended Indiana University where she studied Biology and Latin American Studies before coming to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. At UCCOM, she helps run a free clinic at a local homeless shelter and is a Women’s Health Scholar. Although she can’t ride a bike and didn’t ride a real roller coaster until age 19, her best memories are of abandoning her comfort zone in Central America zip-lining, bungee jumping, white water rafting and making her host family laugh practicing her Spanish.
