Mahek is currently a first-year medical student at McMaster University. Prior to entering medical school, she completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at McMaster University. She joined ARSC because she is passionate about bringing awareness to how rosacea and other skin conditions manifest in skin of colour, stemming from a family member’s personal experience with rosacea.
Mahek is involved in clinical research in dermatology encompassing acne and rosacea, as well as public health research focused on health equity. She is also involved in community outreach projects, and has facilitated roundtables focused on health promotion and infrastructure related projects.
