“What's Up, Doc?: A Clinic with a Cause” by Emily Grodinsky

The Cornell Daily Sun — I am lucky that being a medical student and entering the medical profession is exactly the right fit for me. I find the science of the human body, the intricacies of forming a diagnosis and listening to patients both fascinating and stimulating. As a medical student interested in human rights and global health, I also have the privilege of learning about and advocating for the health of others who are not quite as lucky as me.

WCCHR Receives the 2013 Marcus M. Reidenberg Award in Community Service

After selection by student nomination and voting, the Offices of Student Affairs and Community Service announced the selection of two student groups to receive the first annual Marcus M. Reidenberg Award in Community Service. This award recognizes the collective efforts of students for outstanding contribution to the community.

These groups were formally recognized in a ceremony on May 28, 2013 and their names added to a plaque for public display of the collective student efforts to the community. Additionally, these initiatives will be ineligible for nomination for three years, allowing students to select additional outstanding community service initiatives in subsequent years.
