Jason is a second-year internal medicine resident at Baylor College of Medicine. His love for fitness
started early in grade school when he was first introduced to basketball. Countless days and nights were
endlessly spent with friends getting buckets. Over the years, the passion expanded to weightlifting, then
to tennis during medical school and the early peak of the pandemic. Now, he is dabbling in the world of
volleyball, spikeball, and pickleball. Through MiM, Jason wants to help students and residents discover
how fitness can help form timeless friendships, relieve stress in such a taxing profession, and realize
passions outside of medicine.

Through MiM, Rhia is excited to facilitate an environment where students/residents can find support in leading a more active lifestyle.
Yusuf is a second year IM resident at Baylor College of Medicine, and is an avid sports fan. He enjoyed a stellar Intramural Career at Wayne State University School of Medicine, winning championships in volleyball, basketball, soccer, and football. His success on the IM field garnered the interests of many coaches from Power 5 schools trying to recruit them to their respective IM programs, but Yusuf decided to take his talents to sunny Houston and eventually committed to Baylor College of Medicine. Yusuf hopes to continue the success he enjoyed in medical school of winning IM championships and loves using sports as a way to de-stress after a long day of work. The camaraderie that sports offers is something Yusuf believes will strengthen the bonds during residency among his peers."
