Jason Nayar is a sophomore from Springfield, Missouri. He is a health sciences student with a pre-professional emphasis. Jason is on the pre-med track with the intent to go on to medical school and one day become a surgeon.
“I love learning about the different aspects of the medical field and how it all comes together to improve someone’s health,” Jason says. “Forming connections and interacting with people is huge for me, and there is no better way to interact with others than to be a professional in the medical field.”
In addition to being a student ambassador, Jason has been involved in campus organizations such as Sigma Eta Rho and Mizzou Club Tennis, which provides the opportunity to travel and play against students from other universities. In his free time, Jason enjoys exploring downtown Columbia with his friends or volunteering at the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.
