Noa Weinstein ’18
Albright Fellow 2017

Noa Weinstein
Noa is a junior majoring in Spanish and is on the pre-med track.

In the summer of 2016, Noa took a research-based global health class through Duke University and the Organization for Tropical Studies in northeastern South Africa. While staying in a small village in the Limpopo Province, she focused her research on the connections between unemployment, access to and views on education, and health outcomes in the village. In the summer of 2015, Noa interned in the Emergency Department of Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City, rotating through different wards of the department talking with and bringing food and water to patients, shadowing doctors, assisting with patient transport, observing surgeries, performing EKGs, and helping to translate between Spanish-speaking patients and their doctors. Noa’s summer at Bellevue confirmed her desire to pursue a career in medicine. She spent her junior fall abroad in Córdoba, Spain, studying at the University of Córdoba. At Wellesley, Noa is on the varsity crew team, works as a Spanish tutor for the Pforzheimer Learning and Teaching Center, and served her sophomore year on the Honor Code Council as an ombudsman. After graduating, Noa hopes to work in a medical setting in South or Central America before applying to medical school. She would ultimately like to pursue an M.D./M.P.H degree.
