Chung is pursuing her intense interest in advancing health equity and social justice as a bioethicist, conducting research in mental health independently and engaging in international-level activism projects with the World Health Organization (WHO) and Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM), an organization that focuses on expanding access to life-saving medicines in low-income communities through creative activism work, journalism, and multi-media projects that focus on skills and strategies.

Chung says that she first got an opportunity to practice and develop creative activism work and multi-media project through her early experiences in Ethic News.

Chung will be starting medical school in the Fall of 2022.
