Meet our 2019 MOA Scholarship Recipients

Name: Shameem Fakory
Hometown: Saco, ME

Class: 2023
Current Osteopathic Medical School: University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine

About Shameem: Student Doctor Fakory's passion in life has always been to pursue medical school and become a pediatric hematologist/oncologist. As a first-generation American who suffers from a chronic blood disorder, she has a unique perspective on medicine. She aims to ensure that her future patients feel supported in every aspect of their well-being and that they achieve spiritual, mental, and emotional health in addition to solving their physical ailments. She believes it is important for a physician to center treatment plans around the patient, not the diagnosis, in a personalized approach to care. While working towards her undergraduate degree, Shameem frequently volunteered at the Maine Medical Center, receiving a volunteer recognition award in 2018 for reaching 500+ hours of volunteer service. During her graduate career, Shameem assisted with research at the Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI), where her lab's research was accepted for publication by Cell Reports. Shameem became the first person in her family to obtain a Masters degree in 2018, graduating with honors and she looks forward to advancing biomedical research and improving public health in the future.

The MOA was pleased to offer a 2019 scholarship to Shameem Fakory, OMS I and wishes her luck in her studies at UNE COM!

Name: Daniel (Dan) Good
Hometown: Hampden, ME
Current Osteopathic Medical School: University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine

About Daniel:
Student Doctor Good believes in the osteopathic philosophy and learned about the body’s ability to heal itself through job shadowing experiences with DOs in Maine, including MOA Past President Jack Forbush, DO. He is also acutely aware that in rural Maine practice settings, physicians must be versatile and he believes the extra set of manipulative techniques gives DOs an advantage in being able to offer quality care to their patients. Dan studied Health, Wellness and Occupational studies at UNE and worked as an EMT at Maine Medical Center during his undergraduate career. He also participated in a medical mission trip in Nicaragua, helping two local physicians provide care for over one hundred patients. As a result of his varied experiences in the field of medicine, Dan hopes to practice in rural Maine, recognizing the great need in communities like Aroostook county. He looks forward to the opportunity to watch families grow and flourish with the help of his medical knowledge and healing hands.

The MOA was pleased to offer a 2019 scholarship to Dan Good, OMS I and wishes him luck in his second year at UNE COM!
