BioPerry Nielsen Jr is a Master’s Student in Health Policy at Stanford University. Originally from Colorado, Perry got his Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) graduating Cum Laude and as a Truman Finalist. During his time in university, he volunteered in the pediatric immunocompromised unit at Shands Hospital and planned service events with local Gainesville nonprofits like Climb for Cancer and Footprints: Buddy and Support Program. He did quality assurance research in the Congenital Heart Center which led him to win 3rd place for original research at a regional Southeast research conference. He also interned at the Colorado Medical Society, where he helped draft a statewide physician counseling program for clinicians facing distress.
Perry is passionate about common sense healthcare reform and the accessible translation of medical research to clinical practice. In his free time, he enjoys meeting local coffee roasters and exploring the vintage fashion scene. Most of all, he’s excited to wander the west coast of the United States and appreciate all the natural beauty of the Bay Area.
