My name is Nicole Miller. I graduated from the University of Richmond in 2021 with a BS in Biology and Leadership Studies, and am currently a first year medical student at Duke University School of Medicine. I am part of DukeMed’s Primary Care Leadership Track (PCLT). and am interested in becoming a pediatric primary care clinician. Before matriculation, I worked with the Literacy Lab at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on various research projects around early literacy, early relational health, and the Reach Out and Read model – including the design and development of the ELRL!
