Nutrition, Anatomy & Physiology, Pharmacology, and Spanish. Another classmate complained about dealing with difficult patients during her nursing rounds at the hospital. Pretty much my entire class is in Penn’s undergraduate nursing program towards a Bachelors in Nursing (BSN) degree.

Physics Research at Haverford with Maple Lee BMC’17

A couple weekends ago, I ran into my hell sister Maple Lee (BMC’17) while boarding the Blue Bus to Haverford for brunch.

I took a detour to the gallery by following Maple to her lab.dfe57225-5ff2-4fc9-ac84-b3e624763cbd
