MEET Alexandra Weiss

Alexandra Weiss is a poet and grad student from Los Angeles who moved to Chicago for school and the weather. She used to work in clinical research but after being diagnosed with a BRCA mutation, she realized her real passion was for researching and discussing the ways science, illness, medicine, and mortality affect identity and literature and how such conversations can, in turn, shape scientific practice. She likes writing about hospitals, mental health, and everyday life.
