Amy Chen, Stanford University, CA

Amy Chen, a sophomore at Stanford University majoring in human biology, is extremely passionate about issues regarding organ trafficking and medical tourism. Recognizing that this social issue is an interplay of various social, economic, and political factors, Amy determined it would be most impactful to first address the global organ shortage by improving organ donation education in China, where organ donation is extremely low (from 2003 to 2009, only 130 out of China’s 1.3 billion population pledged to donate their organs). This summer, Amy will be in China to conduct research on attitudes toward organ donation, transplantation, and the nation’s current pilot program to improve organ donation education.
