Ben Richter


Educational Background:
B.A. in Economics and Math from Indiana University

Why did you join NHC?
I wanted to take a break from the classroom and spend some time in the real world before continuing my education. I'm interested in the business side of medicine, and the Prescription Assistance role seemed like a great way to get exposure to a major health system. The city of Philadelphia is also home to a beautiful array of diverse populations, which makes the work especially interesting. 

What are your plans after NHC?
I will be attending the Indiana University School of Medicine

What sparked your interest in community service?
My interest in economics

What excites you the most about serving in Philadelphia?
I absolutely love the energy of being in a big city. Philadelphia is a melting pot of people, places, and things-- it makes me feel more connected to the world. I'm also a huge travel guy, and look forward to exploring the history of the city and making my way to D.C., Baltimore, New York, and New Jersey.

What is your favorite food?
Depends on the season, but I always love fish tacos
