Dana Oshiro ’24
Dana Oshiro spent the summer in Hanoi, Vietnam, working with Supporting Community Development Initiatives (SCDI), VinUniversity and Cornell’s David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement to combat adverse childhood events like poverty, abuse, neglect and substance abuse. Oshiro’s group developed and proposed an intervention method that used storytelling to help mitigate the effects of these events.
