Adonias Lemma is a second year medical student and a member of the Class of 2023 attending Morehouse School of Medicine. Growing up in a single parent, low income household with an immigrant background, he vividly remembers visiting free clinics and hospitals such as Grady Memorial with his family to receive healthcare and recalls the long wait times due to the facilities being under-staffed with physicians. It was this, along with several other events in his life that served as a compass in his pursuit of science that directed him towards pursuing a medical degree. Before attending medical school, he completed his undergraduate education at Emory University and obtained a B.S. in Chemistry. As a medical student he devotes time once or twice a month to engaging with refugee clinics such as Grace Village Medical Clinic in Clarkston, the Lion House Eye Clinic, and the Morehouse School of Medicine H.E.AL. Clinic. Adonias is committed to pursuing a career in Emergency Medicine and working within an urban hospital setting such as Grady Memorial. This is Adonias’s first year as a Summer Academy Instructor.
