Kisan is a first year medical student at CalMed in Redlands. He grew up in Eagle Rock, CA and graduated from USC with a Bachelor’s in Neuroscience (‘18) and a Master’s in Global Medicine (‘19). At USC, he played on the club basketball team and also found an interest in weightlifting. Not having avidly engaged in sports until later in high school, Kisan has discovered an outlet for himself through physical activity, particularly basketball. He appreciates that the impact of athletics extends into realms of mental health and can serve as a great way to cope with stress – particularly in medical school. He is excited to continue learning about the benefits of exercise with his peers by bringing MedMotion to CalMed.
Miranda is a second-year medical student at CUSM. She grew up in Dana Point, California, where she was a competitive swimmer on her high school swim team. She attended the University of California, San Diego as an undergrad and worked in the Emergency Department before starting medical school at CUSM. Her favorite activities are running, hiking, rock climbing, and yoga, and she loves going to school at CUSM because of all the amazing hiking and rock climbing the area has to offer. Miranda believes the benefits of exercise go far beyond physical health, and it is the major way she prevents burnout as a medical student. She is excited to begin sharing these benefits with her school and community through Medicine in Motion.
