Zoie Sheets

Zoie Sheets is a current Masters of Public Health student at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), focusing on health policy and health outcomes for disabled populations. As an incoming medical student at UIC, Zoie is also highly interested in how physicians are taught (or not taught) about disability and is working to develop disability curriculum for medical students. She has served as the co-chair of several student disability committees at UIC, both during her undergraduate and graduate years, including the Subcommittee on Disabled Student Experiences (SDSE) of the Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities (CCSPD). In her work for The Inclusive Collective campus ministry, Zoie examines how faith spaces can be both physically and culturally accessible for disabled people. Outside of academics, she loves to paint, watch way too much Grey’s Anatomy, and find creative ways to care for her chronically-ill body.
