Deb Hall is a member of the class of 2015 at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. She is honored and excited to be serving as National Secretary this year. Prior to this, she served as a co-Director for AMSA’s Health Care for All Campaign and as Chair of the National Premedical Team for the 2010-2011 term. She completed her undergraduate studies at Wesleyan University, with a major in Neuroscience and Behavior.
Before returning to school full time, Deb was a full time mom and an advocate for families of children with neurological disabilities. As an advocate, she helped families to navigate service systems and work for policy reform. Patient advocacy is at the heart of what drives Deb’s career goals, so it was no surprise that she found her way to AMSA very early in her training. In her first semester at Wesleyan University, she started an AMSA chapter and also attended the Paul Ambrose Health Care for All Leadership Institute- she and AMSA have been inseparable ever since.
In her spare time, Deb enjoys spending time with her husband Bill, their two sons, Wil and Robbie, and their little dog Sasha.
