Meet Our 2017 Sarah Stewart Scholars

Ariunzaya (Ari) Amgalan

Born in Mongolia and raised in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, Ari is a medical student at Georgetown University School of Medicine. She chose Georgetown for many reasons. She loves Georgetown’s devotion to the cura personalis principle, which is embodied in the school’s community, curriculum, and opportunities that the school provides. Another reason why she chose Georgetown is for its ideal location, close to home and the epicenter for advocacy. Ari is particularly passionate about health equity and advocacy for underserved communities. During her time at Georgetown so far, Ari has been actively involved with the Health Justice Scholar Track, Georgetown chapter of Physicians for Human Rights, Street Medicine Outreach, Council on Diversity Affairs, and more. During the remainder of her medical training and in her future career as a physician, she strives to continue serving the community, especially the underserved and underprivileged. Outside of academics, she enjoys arts & crafts, community service, and spending time with family and friends.
