My name is Kaitlan, one of GlobeMed at Whitman’s Co-Presidents! and I’m a sophomore at Whitman College. I’m currently taking classes in both the sciences, to fulfill requirements for medical school, and in anthropology, the field in which I plan to major. Both the studies of anthropology and of the hard sciences contribute to my overall aspirations – to practice medicine with a distinct focus on em-pathy and humanity. I’m so excited to be entering a partnership with an organization like BWU, which has such a distinct focus on protecting and ensuring human rights in such a multitude of ways! This past summer I volunteered in Villa El Salvador, a poorer community outside of Lima, for four months – the photo pictures me with Flavia, a 5 year-old girl enrolled in the government-operated educational program for which I worked.
