Hey guys!

My name is Cody and I’m currently a dual degree student in MD and MPH programs at West Virginia University School of Medicine and the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. I just finished up my first two years of medical school at WVU and will soon be packing my bags and moving up to Philadelphia to get my Masters in Public Health. Then I’ll be heading back to my home state of West Virginia in order to finish up medical school after which I’ll pursue residency training. At the end of my perhaps never ending tunnel of professional training, I plan on pursuing a career in academic surgery and public health.

Aside from the school side of things, which predominately consume the vast majority of my time, I’m big into marathon running and training, which is super convenient because it counterbalances my love for donuts. I’m a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur, though I love all varieties of caffeine — I don’t discriminate. When I have the time, I prefer to hold my coffee in one hand and a book for pleasure reading in the other.

I plan on using this page to extend my reach into all the different interest I have from medicine and public health to running, motivational mantras, reading, and caffeination and would be thrilled to have you follow along if you’re interested in one or a number of these items. Oh and you can probably expect some occasional political anecdotes/rants… This thing doesn’t have a character limit unlike Twitter, right?!

Feel free to reach out, engage with me, and do follow along!
