Thanks for visiting my page! My name is Vishal Khetpal – I'm a fourth-year medical student at Brown University, originally from Oklahoma. In 2016, I graduated with a master's degree in global health from the London School of Economics; in 2015, I earned a bachelor's degree in anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis.

My writing, on politics and health, takes a particular interest in stories flying under the radar, left un- (or under-) examined. Most recently, my freelance work has featured in Slate, NPR, VICE Health, STAT News, Undark Magazine, and the Huffington Post, among other outlets. I intend to pursue a career involving medical practice, public policy, and writing for general audiences about meaningful health issues.
