Mohammed Hammoud

Mohammed Hammoud

My name is Mohammed Hammoud. I was born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan by two immigrant parents who raised me and my four siblings. After graduating high school, I pursued a bachelor’s in public health sciences from the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. It was then that I had a few opportunities to travel abroad and learn more about myself, my passions, and my purpose. I always had the dream of becoming a dentist and it was during the summer of my senior year that I applied and was admitted to LECOM, where I am now a second-year dental student.
