Norma Hylton is a Leverett House resident studying Neurobiology on the Mind, Brain, and Behavior track with a Secondary in Global Health and Health Policy. As a pre-med student and a musician, she is passionate about medicine, research, and musical performance. During her time at Harvard, Norma has served as a member of The Harvard Society of Black Scientists and Engineers, organizing peer mentorship and networking events to support minority students in the sciences. She has also participated in global health programs in Chile and Panama, researching foreign healthcare systems and volunteering in under-resourced communities abroad. In addition, Norma plays percussion and serves as the Co-President of the Harvard Pops Orchestra, providing entertainment to the Harvard and Cambridge communities through concerts that combine music, theatrical performance, and comedy. As a student committed to scientific research in neurobiology, Norma works as a research assistant in the Haggarty Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital on a project to investigate alternative therapies for major depressive disorder. After Harvard, she plans to pursue an MD/PhD and continue to work as a physician/scientist at a teaching hospital, providing care for patients and mentoring future doctors. She is honored to be a recipient of the Deshaun Hill & Harvard Stephens Memorial Scholarship and hopes to continue to devote her time to others through mentorship, volunteer work, and tutoring, at Harvard and beyond.
