What’s Up, Doc?

I got an e-mail last week from a colleague at the Carver College of Medicine. I usually work with this particular colleague on planning class reunions, but this time she wanted to let me know about the Medicine Mini Medical School program.

Frozen in Time

This past weekend, I took a short trip to Galena, a historic village in northwest Illinois just 20 miles from the Iowa border and a few miles from Wisconsin. I love strolling the winding narrow streets and seeing the beautifully preserved architecture that is as striking today as it was in the mid 1800s. Eighty-five percent of the city has…

An “Official” Hawkeye

My father was so excited to take me to my first Iowa basketball game; I was seven years old and remember it well. I got a new white satin jacket (now retro) for Christmas with my name and “Future Hawkeye Cheerleader” embroidered on the front left side to wear to the nearly new Carver-Hawkeye Arena. This was the first of…

Big Dream Gathering Progress

Last November, the UIAA hosted an amazing event called the Big Dream Gathering.  The evening was abuzz with energy and positive can-do attitudes.  It’s been two months, and I would like to hear if anyone made progress on their dreams.

It is understandable that many who attended (including me) were motivated to begin their dreams, but, after reality sat in,…
