Kaitlin Parks
Region 7 Director

Kaitlin Parks is a third-year medical student at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences (OSU-CHS). As a professional ballet dancer and EMT before medical school, she brings a hearty work ethic, fierce commitment to service, and avid passion to the study of medicine. As the Region 7  Director for AMWA, she organized a successful Regional Conference and proposed the Inaugural Interregional Service Project this year benefiting Days for Girls. During her previous position as the President of the OSU-CHS branch of Student AMWA, she organized multiple volunteer events, workshops, and fundraisers. She has maintained an interest in Emergency Medicine fueled by clinical experiences as far reaching as Antarctica. Between studying and volunteering, she nurtures an adventurous spirit in the outdoors, and even finds some time to dance. She's currently enjoying her rotations living in a 1971 Airstream she renovated.
