Alumni Update - Emily Haas
Emily Haas is currently enrolled in Med School at UofL! In her own words, "School has been great! It certainly keeps me busy but I've loved every minute of it! I have wonderful classmates, and I feel like I've learned more in the last almost two years than I have in my whole life. It seems to be going by so fast too, I cannot believe it! I'm still exploring different specialities that I may want to pursue and am really enjoying the entire journey. I am amazed every single day by the complexity of the human body and the incredible feats that medicine can accomplish."
