“We are all born with a unique genetic blueprint, which lays out the basic characteristics of our personality as well as our physical health and appearance… And yet, we all know that life experiences do change us.”—Joan D. Vinge (Author)


This community is intended to connect  students, alums, and professionals whose interests relate to medicine, science, technology, health, or an intersection of the areas. By embracing the values of a liberal arts education, students are encouraged to select a broad and deep course of study, to engage with their community, and to participate in activities that develop their interest in medicine, the sciences, and the social and humanistic contexts of healthcare. Students develop the essential capacities expected of all health professionals: an interest in scientific inquiry, a keen understanding of the promise and limitations of the profession, a deep appreciation of the value of empathy, and cultural competence. More than ever, students hoping to enter into a career in the fields of medicine and health need experiential opportunities and access to mentors in their field. This community provides a forum for students to avail themselves of these opportunities and to receive expert insight into career pathways.
