Hang P. Nguyen


Hang P. Nguyen is a second-year MD student at Yale School of Medicine. Originally from Vietnam, Hang and her family moved to the US when she was 11. She attended Yale College (JE’21), graduating with a B.S in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. As an undergraduate, Hang did research in the LusKing lab where she studied the DNA-organization of fission yeast. Outside of research, Hang focused on advocating for and providing mentorship to first-generation and low-income (FGLI) Yalies in her role as Co-president of A Leg Even and as a FroCo for JE. 

Since starting medical school, Hang’s research interests have shifted from basic science to clinical research. She is particularly interested in the intersection of socioeconomic status and health. Currently, she is studying how social determinants of health (such as employment, housing, and transportation) affect the clinical outcomes of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. 

Outside of medicine, Hang enjoys painting and caring for her plants. As the Residential Junior Bates Fellow, Hang is excited to meet with and get to know JE students. Feel free to email her at hang.nguyen@yale.edu or say hi when you see her around!

Douglas Nygren


I am a retired child, adolescent and family therapist whose life reads something like a German Bildungsroman. I began as a student of German literature, ein Germanist, before becoming a Journalist and eventually associate editor of a newspaper. When Yale accepted my future wife as a resident in psychiatry, I moved with her to Haven where I found work at Yale teaching first in Daily Themes and then being the writing tutor in JE. In JE I developed a specialty helping students to write again who were suffering from writing blocks. This in turn led to my becoming a a child therapist. The first third of my career I treated suicidal and out of control teenagers in a combination inpatient/intensive outpatient unit at St. Raphael's Hospital; the last two thirds were at Clifford Beers Clinic in New Haven where I worked with traumatized and abused children. Many of the techniques I used to help abused children came from my work as an editor as wells as from being a JE and Daily Themes writing tutor. dnygr@cshore.com
