Meet Our New Board Member – Sierra Fleming

Sierra Fleming is a fourth-year medical student at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) at Augusta University. She graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Georgia State University in 2018. At MCG, she is a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society and the Student National Medical Association. She is an alumni of and now works as a summer program assistant for an Educational Enrichment Pipeline Program for minority students who are interested in medical careers.

As a student and 2022 candidate for her Doctorate of Medicine, Sierra brings a unique perspective to the board. She has published a variety of work on the Global Library of Scientific Images (GLSI) website and has worked with Dr. Joe Calkins as her mentor and career advisor. Sierra has declared Internal Medicine as her specialty and noted an interest in cardiology.

Sierra sees GLSI as the ideal platform for lifelong students of medicine, whether they have been practicing for decades, are in medical school, or have just begun medical practice. Working with Dr. Calkins and being involved with the GLSI website have jumpstarted what Sierra envisions as a career that will always be inclusive of medical education and peer-reviewed publishing.
