Raymond spent a formative summer working with clinicians on HIV treatment and counselling in his parents’ former home country of Vietnam. Driven to pursue health equity, he worked on hurricane relief initiatives and conducted research on environmental health and infection prevention in low-resource settings around the world. Raymond was involved with his university’s centre for social justice for three years, most recently as co-president, and also contributed to a neighbourhood’s oral history project. Originally from Guelph, Raymond graduated from UNC Chapel Hill as a Morehead-Cain Scholar. He volunteered there as a part-time teaching assistant in the chemistry department. Raymond pursued a master's degree in pharmacology, with a focus on environmental health sciences, at McGill.
