My name is Ryan Chow and I am a Student at Stony Brook University, studying Clinical Laboratory Science. I believe involvement and advocacy within politics is important for getting messages out to representatives that otherwise may not know about specific fields of interest or occupation. A lot of things important to professionals are that their occupation is given safety regulations in order to protect health professionals and patients. Many representatives are not as knowledgeable in certain professionals’ fields and I find it important to inform them and be an advocate of things that matter, instead of staying quiet and allowing others to make decisions for you, that affect you.
