Ser­ena Wil­liams— Don’t ex­pect her to en­roll in med­i­cal school, but fa­mous as a top ten­nis player and emerg­ing fash­ion de­signer—has taken an in­ter­est in medicine. Dur­ing her down­time, the sports star is tak­ing pre-med classes, ac­cord­ing to the As­so­ci­ated Press. At a panel dis­cus­sion Nov. 11 at the Fast Com­pany In­no­va­tion Fes­ti­val in New York, Wil­liams ex­plained that she’s not nec­es­sar­ily in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a doc­tor, but wants to study nu­tri­tion, holis­tic medicine and nat­u­ral heal­ing. “I love the holis­tic side of medicine,” she said.
