More Below.



Olivia Katamanin is a dedicated medical student at the Chicago Medical School with a profound interest in dermatology, particularly in the nuanced realm of Psychodermatology. After attaining a bachelor’s degree in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience from the University of Michigan, she envisioned a path in her medical educational journey that seamlessly melds her fascination with the brain and her passion for dermatology.

Driven by her commitment to mental health advocacy, Olivia founded the A.S.K. For Help Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on mental health awareness and suicide prevention. She also contributed to literature by publishing a study on Depression, Loneliness, and Suicide Risk among Latino College Students. Her research pursuits have additionally delved into various dermatological subjects, ranging from alopecia to pruritus, as well as the intricate field of psychodermatology, exploring topics such as delusions of parasitosis and quality of life post-cosmetic rhinoplasty.

During her time as co-president of the Dermatology interest group at the Chicago Medical School, Olivia not only facilitated opportunities for research and networking but also fostered a supportive environment for fellow students interested in dermatology. With the recent establishment of a dermatology elective at her institution, Olivia aspires to pioneer a Psychodermatology fellowship program and develop educational platforms aimed at advancing practitioner knowledge in this specialized field. Her unwavering dedication to both scientific inquiry and educational outreach excites her to make a difference in patient lives as well as in the medical educational realm.
