An homage that would steal even Dr. Seuss’ heart,

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS -

“Oh, the places you’ll go!” will likely have a dou­ble mean­ing for the grad­u­ates of Dart­mouth Col­lege’s med­i­cal school now that it has been named af­ter Theodor Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, and his wife, Au­drey.

Geisel, who grad­u­ated from Dart­mouth in 1925, later went on to write the famed chil­dren’s books such as The Lorax, How the Grinch Who Stole Christ­mas! and The Cat in the Hat. He also wrote You’re Only Old Once!, a book for peo­ple older than 50 that walks a char­ac­ter though med­i­cal check-ups to show how to be “prop­erly pilled” and “prop­erly billed.”

Dart­mouth named the school the Au­drey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine. (It also doesn’t hurt that the Geisel fam­ily has been the “most sig­nif­i­cant phi­lan­thropist” to Dart­mouth in its his­tory.)
