Meet the MDCB Scholarship Winners

Carla Merveille is currently enrolled in the Medical Dosimetry program at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center School of Health Professions with an anticipated August 2020 graduation. Originally from France, she moved to the United States to pursue her academic studies and completed a Bachelor of Sciences in Biology at the University of Houston.

Carla has been involved in several volunteer activities including as a volunteer at MD Anderson Cancer Center in the Pediatric Oncology Department where she worked with pediatric cancer inpatients and as a tutor for several local children. In 2018, Carla worked in a team on cervical cancer prevention and treatment projects in low-resource settings as part of the MD Anderson Summer Undergraduate Research Program and continued to volunteer with them since.

Following graduation, she is excited to begin a career as a medical dosimetrist to better help patients fighting cancer and she is grateful to have received the MDCB scholarship that will allow her to concentrate on preparing for the exam.
