Congratulations, Fred Kastenbaum PreHealth Award Recipient!
Colette Piasecki-Masters, Biology, Honors Program (2018)
“My passion for medicine was ignited when I began my biology curriculum and joined Professor Susan Witherup’s research lab. Through shadowing in orthopedics, pediatrics, urology, emergency medicine, I realized that every good physician is both a student and a teacher. Through these experiences my goal is now reaffirmed: I want to train as a doctor who supports both a patient’s body and mind.”
