This is year one of the Medical Club. Alexandra Laufer is the driving force behind this club and she has done an incredible job of lining up speakers for the club meetings. The first meeting’s speaker was Emily Gallagher, a registered nurse at Boston Children’s Hospital. She spoke to students about her path to becoming a nurse and the work she is doing now. The second speaker was Dr. Herzig, a gastroenterologist. Dr. Herzig spoke about her work and shared pictures and video of endoscopies. She also brought an endoscope, explaining to the students how it works and letting those who wanted to try to manipulate the endoscope to take a biopsy of a raisin. For both presentations, students were engaged and asked thoughtful questions. Future speakers include a dentist and a gynecologist.
