Teddy Fagrelius is the 2013-2014 PharmFree Fellow for the American Medical Student Association. Originally from Saint Paul, Minnesota, Teddy is a fourth year medical student at the University of Minnesota and will be applying to Emergency Medicine residencies next year.
He has been involved with AMSA and the PharmFree Campaign for many years. He attended various events such as leadership institutes and the AMSA Annual Convention. Teddy has served as a PharmFree Steering Committee Member and a co-chair of the Pharmaceutical Policy Leadership in Medicine Institute. He is thrilled to work full-time at the AMSA office and is looking forward to a year of continued work, advocacy, and learning related to conflict-of-interest issues.
Outside of conflict of interest and access to medicine issues, Teddy’s interests are high-altitude physiology, national healthcare politics, rugby, downhill ski racing, and travel. The passion and integrity of my AMSA colleagues he has been lucky enough to work with is an inspiration and he looks forward to every opportunity to learn and grow.
