Current Fellows

Sara Scott, MD

I attended medical school at University of Michigan and completed residency at The Ohio State University's department of Family and Community Medicine. During residency, I began volunteering weekly at a student-run free clinic, Clínica Latina, which provides care for uninsured, Spanish-speaking patients from a variety of backgrounds. The experience was gratifying yet frustrating, and highlighted the challenges of providing quality care in under-resourced settings, which is one of my goals as a physician. I've also spent time in Latin America, first as a research assistant studying dengue in Colombia and then later developing culturally relevant Women's Health curricula in Guatemala. I am excited to complete a global health fellowship so I can better advocate for sustainable global and immigrant health programs and inspire and teach others to serve immigrant communities. Outside of medicine, I love playing ultimate frisbee, casual vegetable gardening, and backpacking.

Helena Frischtak, MD

Helena L Frischtak, M.D. is a 2021 graduate of the Family Medicine residency at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center. She grew up in Rio de Janeiro until age 18, when she moved to the U.S. for college, eventually staying for medical school at the University of Virginia. She has always enjoyed tropical and low-resource medicine, and has worked in clinics and hospitals in Brazil, New Zealand, and Mozambique. She also spent a year doing fieldwork research in the Peruvian Amazon. She was recently accepted to work with Doctors with Borders (MSF), and hopes to be sent on her first assignment soon. Helena is thrilled to be pursuing the UCSF-Contra Costa Global Health Fellowship, which will give her the tools to be a competent provider abroad and provide a unique global health community for years to come. In her free time, she is usually riding her yellow bike around San Francisco or in close-by state and national parks.

Ryann Milne-Price, MD

I am a recent grad of the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho in Boise. I grew up in Montana and enjoy exploring the outdoors, making art and hanging with eclectic collections of farm animals. My global health experience includes reproductive health research as a medical student. I was attracted to this fellowship as a way to strengthen my ultrasound and emergency medicine skills (I will be working in the ER) and to connect with people who think about global public health. In the future I hope to connect clinical work in the rural West with community health on a broader scale. I am excited and grateful to be a part of this program!

Leticia Moedano, MD

Leticia Moedano grew up in Yuma, Arizona. She completed her undergraduate studies at Yale University before returning to Arizona for medical school. She graduated from the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Tucson Campus with Distinctions in both Global Health and Commitment to Underserved Populations. Her interest in providing care to underserved and diverse patient populations led her to the University of Arizona Alvernon Family Residency Program for her family medicine training where she served a large refugee population in her continuity clinic, community hospital, and on the maternal-child health service. Over the next year as an external fellow, she will be working at a Federally Qualified Health Center in Phoenix, Arizona. She aims through the Global Health Fellowship to develop her point-of-care ultrasound skills, grow as a clinical educator, and continue to provide full-spectrum family medicine, while building relationships for a lifelong career in global health. During her international work, she will be working and teaching in Malawi and Mexico. In her free time, she enjoys spending as much time outdoors, running, hiking, rock climbing, and adventuring with her family, friends, and her dog Teddy. She also enjoys writing and reading, and visiting used bookstores looking for hidden gems.
