**Dr. Lucy Ogbu-Nwobodo** is a resident at MGH and McLean Harvard Psychiatry Residency Program. Born in Nigeria, Lucy was brought by relatives to Oakland, California when she was eleven.

She is the co-president of the Student National Medical Association, as well as the president and founder of the UC Davis Neurosurgery Student Interest Group.
