About Me

Hello! My name is Aro Bhattacharjee and I am excited to serve as your VP Internal Affairs Jr. for this school year. I look forward to expanding and improving support systems for students and helping make sure that everyone is getting the support they need. Prior to med school I was doing my undergrad at the University of Guelph in Biomedical Sciences. While doing my undergrad, I had various leadership roles in student wellness advocacy. I hope to expand on those experiences to better serve my new community.

Year Plans and Goals

I want to compile a list of wellness resources so it is easier for students to access and navigate when they are in need. I also would like to try facilitate an annual survey on student wellness.

Reasons to Contact Me

1. Any concerns with student wellness
2. Difficulty contacting wellness resources
3. You just want to talk!
