Effect of Hum Bio on my life - Two things, really. First, I remember designing my own hospital administration internship with the hospital CEO in my home town and spent the summer after my sophomore year having this great experience. The only problem - I hadn't cleared it with Hum Bio and my advisor at the time, Sandy Dornbusch, wasn't very happy with me when I arrived back at Stanford wanting credit. The career advisor at the time, Audrey Bernfield, really went to bat for me, because she knew that for a shy and reserved young girl like me, this initiative was a breakthrough.
