Brendan Kouns

Hello, my name is Brendan Kouns and I am a senior majoring in Healthcare Management. I have always been fascinated with the intricacy of our healthcare system from a young age. I witnessed family members deal with chronic conditions such as Alzheimer's and wondered what services were or could be provided to them to fulfill their care needs. I have experienced a variety of healthcare systems in other countries and even interned at a small clinic in Cape Town, South Africa. That experience opened my eyes to the luxuries of the United States and a push to help those who can't help themselves. Furthermore, I just finished up my 3rd internship at Genesis Physicians Group and have the amazing opportunity to participate in care management alongside the CEO. As to my educational career, I hope to attend Trinity University in Fall 2020 and get my Masters in Healthcare Management. I have fast-tracked a multitude of classes here at UTD and love helping anyone and everyone if they have particular questions. Lastly, my personal hobbies include scuba diving and helping my father as a ranch hand on our land. I'm glad to be in an amazing organization such as HMA and I am always open to helping those around me. Looking forward to this upcoming semester!

Available Timings: Tuesday and Thursday- 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM



Haseeb Memon

Hey everyone! My name is Abdul Haseeb Memon, although I usually just go by Abdul. I’m an Ambassador for the HMA at UTD and am pursuing a double major in Healthcare Management and Biology. What drew me towards this field was the fact that it provided me with the best of both worlds i.e. medicine and business. This was perfect for me as I have always been particularly interested in both fields. Having an efficient healthcare system provides a solution for the millions of Americans all over the country who cannot access high quality healthcare already available in the market. Wanting to be a part of this solution is what drives me to excel in this field.
