Guest Speaker - Stephanie White, 2013 HIST Alumna
While at Kenyon, Stephanie majored in History and chose to focus on Middle Eastern and Asian studies. With the help of a Kenyon alumnus, Stephanie was hired after graduation in the Emergency Department of Boston Children’s Hospital. This experience affirmed her interest in healthcare and her decision to pursue a career in medicine. She is currently a 3rd year student at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Stephanie is still undecided as to which specialty she will choose but is leaning towards emergency medicine or obstetrics and gynecology. Her current research interests include patient safety after emergency discharge and the effectiveness of physician communication. In the study of medicine, Stephanie has felt grateful for her background in history. Her faculty at Kenyon pushed her to understand perspectives different than her own, which she has found to be a fundamental component to providing quality care for all people.
