Waynesha E. Blaylock received her bachelor’s of science degree in Biology from Tougaloo College in 2016. She currently attends the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University as a dual degree candidate in the M.D./ ScM Primary Care and Population program. During her time in medical school, Waynesha has consistently advocated for nutrition and food insecurity, health disparities, lack of access to proper healthcare in underserved communities, and diversity. Waynesha plans to receive post-graduate training as a Med-Peds physician to provide specialized care to both children and adult populations, hoping to reduce health inequities in communities with insufficient access to healthcare. In addition, Waynesha values the importance of mentorship and has served as a mentor for undergraduate students through the Leadership Alliance program at Brown University and founded a mentoring organization for adolescent girls in her hometown of Port Gibson, MS. She is also a co-founder of Hometown H.E.R.O.E.S., a non-profit that mission is to provide valuable engagement to the Claiborne County community and the surrounding areas. Waynesha hopes that she can continue to be a valuable resource to the communities in which she serves.
