HumBio was the best part of my Stanford experience! It led me to study medical anthropology, which led me to study leprosy in a slum in Mumbai. During that summer, I decided that I'd rather be a physician helping people than studying people, and thus began my career in medicine. 12 years later, I'm a physician in Oakland, and I still fondly remember my time as a HumBio student, an SA, and then as a CA for A-side. It was a wonderful, stimulating, and liberating department to be a part of! I miss it very much!
