UofT News highlights recent-grad Dariya Darvin’s Achievements
“Meanwhile, her interest in geography led her to take a first year Geographic Information Systems (GIS) course. She soon discovered the field was applicable to her goal of working in public health since she could use GIS to improve health-care delivery.
“I did it because I like it, but once I was into it, it fell into place,” Darvin says. “I saw the connections.”
Darvin graduated with a major in mathematics and a double minor in biology and GIS.
Darvin says the multidisciplinary approach has allowed her to look at health through different lenses. “It looks like a mix, but it ties together.”
Following medical school, her plan is to use that mix of knowledge to work with an interdisciplinary team of public health experts dedicated to reducing inequalities in access to health care.”
