Yasmin Khalili Health Sciences Intern

Yasmin joined CHANGEpain in January 2017.  She is in her 3rd year of studies in Health Sciences at SFU with a concentration in Population and Quantitative Health and an intended minor in Biology. Yasmin chose this path as she loves public health and the enormous impact it has on the population and hopes to be able to continue in this field as a researcher, professor, or potential physician in the future!

Yasmin is very passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of others through health care and could think of no better way than by being a part of an incredible team that helps people with chronic pain. After completing her bachelor's degree Yasmin hopes to either attend medical school or persue her Master’s in Public Health. 

Outside of the clinic, Yasmin works as a Behaviour Interventionist with children who have autism spectrum disorder and with SFU Student Central as a campus Tour Guide. On the weekends, she works with Special Olympics BC during the curling practices and volunteers with Eagle Ridge Hospital as a Resident Assistant. In her free time, Yasmin loves going for long bike rides and playing all types of card games and board games with her family and friends. She knows a couple “fortune telling” games too!
