Our team

  • Farah DadabhoyTeam Captain

    Farah grew up in a big, hot, congested city in Pakistan and loved every moment of it – mostly because she had pet goats and a bizarre appreciation for scorching temperatures. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Duke University, where she became interested in maternal fetal medicine and addicted to sweet tea. Currently, she is a first year medical student at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where she spends most of her time inhabiting windowless study rooms. She has a passion for food and writing, although most of her meals are bought from the freezer aisle and most of her writing is associated with PowerPoint slides. 


  • Kate BlattTeam Member

    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.

  • Sara McCrateTeam Member

    Perhaps it was growing up with an engineering father, and pulling over on road trips to admire dammed rivers and “exquisite” limestone formations (the material of childhood dreams), but in Biology class Sara was told the living world followed the principle of structure that serves function, it made perfect sense. The same theory never ceases to apply to roles in her life. In her comedy improv group during undergraduate before any actor entered the developing scene they knew to enter with a purpose in the plot. In medical school Sara has joined two groups, the Medical Spanish Health Elective and the Urban Health Project to marry the arts of accurate communication and working in a low resource setting; characteristics crucial to global health work. Even more a credit to her med school successes is the structure and support from the girls she studies with.. Shama, Kate, and Farah… the MedMujeres!

  • Shama MilonTeam Member

    Shama Milon was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, but spent much of her childhood growing up in southern Florida. Before the age of ten, she attended seven different schools, as a result of moving from various country to country and city to city. This experience fostered in her a love of travel, building new relationships, and overcoming challenging situations. While attending Duke University, she spent a summer in Cairo, Egypt, which made her increasingly aware of global health inequities and fueled her desire to make a bigger impact through her future practice. Currently, she is a first-year student at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
