Friends & Colleagues, 

The more you get to know our students, the more you want to know. While their backgrounds can be far different, some grew up with a guard at the gate to their neighborhoods and others had bouts with homelessness, they all have an unmistakable sense of purpose. No matter their ethnic persuasion or gender, they appreciate that health is the greatest wealth. They are becoming physicians, men and women dedicated to preventing, diagnosing and treating the many medical threats to our lives our quality of life. In today’s newsletter, we focus on student Andrew Han, a young man who’s had to deal with a language barrier, discrimination, a family financial crisis and a lack of stability, yet he still devotes his life to purposeful living.
