Kristina Borham is a current member of the Class of 2020 at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine in Scranton, Pennsylvania. She graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Cell and Molecular Biology in 2015. She is pursuing a residency position in Obstetrics and Gynecology through the United States Air Force.

 

She has been a member of PATH since March 2018 and currently serves as our Medical Student Representative and Public Relations Chairs. She is also working to establish a Student Interest Group section of AMWA-PATH. She served as the President of her AMWA Chapter from 2017-2018 and has been an active member since 2016. Her interest in human trafficking began with a bra donation drive to Free the Girls, an organization that helps to empower women freed from sex trafficking. Shortly after, she completed two SUSTAIN (Stand Up to Sex Trafficking: Awareness, Implementation, Networking) trainings in Philadelphia through AMWA-PATH and became committed to raising physician awareness of human trafficking.

 

Since then, she has served as primary designer for the updated LIFT curriculum, implemented and is currently adapting a trafficking curriculum at her institution, is a co-author on an upcoming clinical casebook on human trafficking, and is working to create an online presence for AMWA-PATH through Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook in her role as Public Relations Co-Chair.  In the future, she plans to continue educating the medical field on human trafficking and bring awareness to her colleagues, as well as investigate the intersection of trafficking and women’s health.
