Drusia Dickson, B.A. is a final-year M.D. candidate in the UCSF School of Medicine. As an undergraduate student at Stanford University she became interested in the rapid decrease in Russian life expectancy following the collapse of the Soviet Union, traveled frequently to Russia, and ultimately earned a B.A. in Russian Language and Literature. After Stanford, she worked at Google and on the USAID Healthcare Improvement Project in Moscow, Russia before entering UCSF.

In 2016 and 2017 Drusia spent 6 months with the Center for Global Surgical Studies in Southwest Region of Cameroon collecting qualitative interviews about local care-seeking behaviors. Her ongoing interests include injury, urban health, access to care in resource-constrained settings, and qualitative research methods.
