Evelisse is a Coney Island, Brooklyn native and daughter of immigrant parents hailing from Guyana and Cuba.  She graduated Cum Laude from CUNY Hunter College with a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Special Honors (interdisciplinary studies).  While attending SUNY Upstate Medical University, Evelisse served as secretary of the DocsForTots pediatrics interest group, cultural representative of the South Asian Medical Student Association, logistics coordinator and program editor for the 46th Annual LMSA Northeast Regional Conference, and a Student Advisory Council member and Community Engagement Committee leader for the SUNY Upstate Blackwell Advocacy Learning Community.  Through the Blackwell Advocacy Learning Community, Evelisse spearheaded various civic engagement endeavors in Syracuse and is most proud of her work in collaborating with local community leaders to establish monthly, student-run health screenings and COVID vaccine outreach events geared towards vulnerable populations in the greater Syracuse area.

 

Evelisse was drawn to the Brown Pediatrics Residency Program because its mission directly aligns with her passion for health equity, advocacy, community engagement, and serving diverse and medically underserved populations.  She especially appreciated Brown’s close-knit culture and family feel.  Evelisse is currently very interested in primary care but is open to being inspired during residency.

 

Outside of medicine, Evelisse adores dancing to Soca and Chutney music, singing along to 90’s-Early 2000’s R&B hits, watching all things horror and true crime, and is a self-proclaimed procrastibaker and cook that loves to share her delicious, stress-induced culinary creations.  She is excited to join the Pediatrics team at Brown and cannot wait to explore all that Providence has to offer.
