Hollis native receives academic honor

HOLLIS – Jonah Chazin, of Hollis, received the Student Activity Award from Boston University College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College at the annual Senior Awards Reception on Friday, May 19. This award recognizes students who make strong contributions to College and University extracurricular activities.

Chazin graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in human physiology on Sunday, May 21. While at BU, he was a research assistant at the Sports Medicine Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, a Sargent College Dean’s Host and the president and co-founder of the Jewish Medical Network at BU. He was also awarded “Most Dedicated Brother” in the International Jewish Fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi and won intramural flag football championships.

“In many ways, Jonah is an entrepreneur, starting programs such as Jewish Medical Network and Happening LLC,” said Heather Nicholson, an academic counselor at Sargent. “It is clear that Jonah was raised with strong family values and a belief that success in life is more probable when measured by how much you give love and support to others.”

After graduating, Chazin plans to work as a clinical assistant at OrthoNorCal for a year before starting medical school.
