Dorothy Adu-Amankwah

A recent graduate of Duke University, Dorothy Adu-Amankwah looks forward to the one-year fellowship program in Theology, Medicine, and Culture before heading to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She loves thinking about ways in which the arts and humanities could lead to more humane medicine for both healthcare providers and patients. She completed her undergraduate studies in English and minored in Global Health. Evident in her major choice, Dorothy has a love for words and storytelling. As such, she took the opportunity of Icahn’s FlexMed to focus her undergraduate studies on the intersection of medicine and literature. She hopes studying theology and medicine will be an extension of the interests she developed in undergraduate. Even more, she truly looks forward to the community that will be built over the year and the spiritual formation she will experience.
