My name is Sayid Yasin, and I am currently a Senior at Stony Brook University, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. After graduating this May, I will immediately continue with my Master of Science in Applied Health Informatics
I have elected to specialize in Healthcare Informatics as part of my major. I came to this concentration unintentionally—in an effort to diversify my educational portfolio, I decided to take courses in computer programming during my sophomore year. It was this decision that helped me realize the importance software plays in our lives on a daily basis; not only does software make our lives easier, it allows us to become more efficient, giving us the freedom to spend more time on other activities. Since then, I have sought to pursue a path which will allow me to work in a hybrid field between healthcare and computer science–a field which emphasizes higher quality of care, higher productivity potential, whilst lowering errors and costs.
I also have a passion for effective and stylistic communication through written language. As scholars become more specialized in their fields, there is often a disparity between how these scholars must communicate with the general public and other authorities in their fields. Since I will inevitably be challenged with this difficulty in my field, I chose to minor in Writing and Rhetoric.
