Phillip is a Junior at Emory University studying Economics and Mathematics.
He is a pragmatist by nature; that is, while he hopes that the United States will eventually have universal health coverage, he understands the necessity of steps like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) for increasing the accessibility to health insurance in the populace until then. He joined RING to make a difference in the local communities because he knows that even though PPACA makes health insurance more accessible, there are still often barriers to obtaining and using it. Ever since volunteering at his local hospital in high school, Phillip has been interested in healthcare and helping those around him. He wishes to go to medical school after college so that he can help people on a wider scale one day.
