Kevin Madden and family

I'm astounded how after 15 years the lessons learned in interdisciplinary study continue to reverberate through my daily life. The task of developing an area of study was important; more important was the development of my thought processes that needed to understand how seemingly disparate classes and fields of study fit together. I thought I was learning biology, chemistry, anthropology, sociology and psychology. What I was really being taught was inspired curiosity, creative thinking, problem solving and a lifelong love of learning.
