SBHA Board Member

“Our voices need to be louder when they help those without a voice.”

Joey Kaji, will be attending the University of Rochester as a part of the Rochester Early Medical Scholars (REMS) program. Joey is thrilled to return for his second year as a Youth Advisory Council Member. He has worked on health legislative projects, mental health research, and student advocacy. Joey began working in advocacy as a part of the Providers and Teens Communicating for Health (PATCH) program, where he took on a project to help the fledgling School-Based Health Centers in his district. In school, Joey loves history and computer science fields and hopes to use the skills learned there to pave the way for improved healthcare worldwide. Joey’s passion lies in combining his many interests to help improve healthcare access, especially for other youth. He hopes amplifying youth voices in regard to healthcare will lead to better lives for all.
