Evan Raff was born in Louisville, KY, where he navigated his way through the public school system until graduating from the University of Louisville with a bachelor of arts in biology and psychology.  He then went on to earn his medical doctorate from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.  He is now proud to be a third year resident in one of the strongest internal medicine residency programs in the country: UAB.  Evan has always been keen on the written word.  Although often accused of being too verbose, he continues to enjoy writing (and using far too many words), especially when his work can help bridge connections between people. He will be continuing his medical career practicing hospitalist medicine here at UAB. He joined the editorial board of the UAB Alumni Communication Committee with the hope that his contributions could help to unite past and present generations of UAB internal medicine residents.

Monee Amin was born in Saginaw, MI. She grew up a vagabond; she went to four different elementary schools in four different states by the age of eleven. Things settled when her family relocated to the Kansas City metropolitan area for the duration of her high school career. Upon graduation, Monee entered the combined six year B.A/M.D program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. After a brief detour at the University of Kansas, she returned and completed both her degrees and subsequently arrived at UAB in June of 2012. The adjustment to residency has been seamless in large part due to the co-residents and faculty. She looks forward to interacting with UAB trained physicians both past and present.
