What Did One Doctor Discover During The Ebola Crisis?
When Dr. Kwan Kew Lai (MD ’79) left to treat patients during an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, she wasn’t sure what she would find.
She found pain, loneliness, fear and death, but she also discovered a new inner strength. Her training as an infectious disease expert, paired with veteran experience in international aid, meant she could make a difference.
Like Dr. Lai, Rosalind Franklin didn’t know what she would find when she captured “Photo 51.” Yet that image led to the single most important advance of modern biology — the discovery of the structure of DNA. At her namesake university, we pioneered the model of interprofessional healthcare education, and today we are at the forefront of the study of population health management.
We proudly embrace the spirit of discovery by taking those first steps on paths unknown.
