Human Biology made me realize how multi-dimensional so many of our global challenges are – I think it started with a lecture on deforestation that examined the practice from ecological, social, cultural, and health perspectives. I remember thinking this was way more interesting than mitochondria and interstitial space, so I bailed on any notions on being pre-med and decided to pursue public health. Maybe my medical aspirations were also cut short by an exam where we were asked some “what if” scenarios about Spock’s renal system, only to find out that our elaborate explanations were totally moot because Spock was Vulcan, not human…really??
