Calvin Acker

2018 Summer Intern

Calvin Acker was born in the United States but moved to Hong Kong as a young adult. It was there that he developed a passion for the sciences, music, and travel. He graduated high school in Hong Kong before moving back to the United States to attend Purdue University, where he is now majoring in health sciences and pre-medicine with a minor in biology. His passion for music and medicine has sparked an interest on the effects of music on mental health as well as music therapy, which he is now researching in part with the Global Mental Health Program.
