"Since graduating from Wheaton, I have been attending Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA working toward my medical degree. My education in the Biology and Urban Studies Departments prepared both my mind and my heart for medical school. Through Biology, I learned how to study and pursue the questions that remain unanswered. Urban Studies taught me to look beyond myself and my own situation to see the lives and situations of people I may not cross paths with otherwise. As a physician, both of these will play a crucial role in my practice and in my relationships wiht patients. I'm very thankful for my pre-health training at Wheaton!"
Valerie graduated from Wheaton in May 2012. She was a Biology major.
