Harrison Hines grew up in Indiana before moving to North Carolina and graduating from Duke in 2012 with bachelor’s in chemistry and religion. He then went to medical school at Stanford and between his 2nd and 3rd years of medical school, he went back to divinity school at Duke where he became a part of the theology, medicine, and culture fellowship. There, he focused on new ways to meld his dual passions of medicine and ethics which wound up leading him to public policy. During his fourth year of medical school, he was a staffer for a California lawmaker which he loved; he plans to continue working in political advocacy throughout his career. He is currently a resident in neurology at the University of California, San Francisco. He is married to his medical school sweetheart who gave birth to their son in September 2019. He loves listening to audiobooks, trying new restaurants with friends, and playing tennis whenever he’s not stuck in the hospital.
