Charles De-Ganga, Biochemistry’14

I am currently interested in general surgery and plastic surgery as specializations are concerned, but I am staying open to all experiences in medical school. I hope to be able to return to my home country of Nigeria to contribute to the betterment of health care system there. Having lived in Nigeria for 18 years of my life, I am well aware of the need for better health care professionals and facilities, and would like to set up a practice there as well.

Benjamin Jung, Biochemistry ‘16

His dream is to become a physician to help people who are suffering from physiological problems.   To learn more about the profession he has travelled to Costa Rica and Nicaragua to volunteer.  He also participated in a program in Thailand that allowed him to do clinical rotations . This experience confirmed his interest and desire to continue to medical school.

Thank you, Dr. Kastenbaum for your support!

Sarah Brylinksy, Communications Management and Design ’08, recognized in Sierra Magazine for her “Aha Moment” here at IC.

Below is an excerpt from her interview:

A couple of months into a freshman seminar, Sarah Brylinsky sat through a PowerPoint presentation. It wasn't much more than a series of line charts from a 2001 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. But the charts had pluck. Their lines were fire engine red, and they rose fervently up, up, following the perilous trajectory of greenhouse gas concentrations and surface temperatures. The final slide was just a quote from David A.
