    Steve Young is a third year medical student at Tufts University School of Medicine. He received his Bachelor's of Science in Microbiology and Immunology with a Minor in Chinese at the University of California-Irvine. Between undergraduate and medical school, Steve worked in the United States Peace Corps where he taught English and Math in a primary school as well as to secondary students. He also applied for and received a $5000 grant for the first solar powered computer lab in the region. He trained a four-member team of local villagers to manage the lab sustainability. Additionally, Steve collaborated with five Peace Corps Volunteers to create a regional specific HIV manual of activities and applied it in the co-facilitation of one HIV workshop with another NGO. He reached over 30 youths in the village from HIV workshops regarding proper usage of contraceptives and brought over 25 villagers to the local clinic to receive free HIV testing. With Steve's passion for Global Health, with the Tzu Chi International Relief Foundation, he organized "Walk for the Earth." This was a walk-a-thon for the people of Haiti after their devastating earthquake. Steve envisioned, planned, and executed the event that brought in more than 300 walkers and 700 sponsors and raised more than $33,000. Integral to the execution, Steve led the central committee of 15 members from 3 college campuses. Steve also has a passion for entrepreneurship and was a Tufts Medstart Innovation Challenge 2014 Participant, where he provided medical background and experience on an app that would merge and aggregate data from technology that tracked biometrics and visualize it for physicians on the patient's next visit. Additionally, he was a Tufts Medstart Hackathon 2015 Participant, where he worked on a project with the Myo armband that would provide haptic feedback to wearers about their posture to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
