Megan Verbeke, a junior at Lapeer West High School, has been selected to attend Cornell University’s 3-week program Body, Mind and Health. In this highly-competitive program Megan will earn credits for college and, according to the program guidelines, will:
- explore the fascinating past, present, and future of health and medicine in the United States;
- examine the ways in which medicine and its practitioners have impacted—and been impacted by—American social, political, cultural, and economic developments;
- build a solid base of knowledge for enriching your own perspective as a future health or medical professional; and
- gain a semester’s worth of experience with college-level work.
Megan’s acceptance to the program would not have been possible without the hard work and attention to detail of Karol Settergren, a counselor at West. In addition, Megan received several excellent letters of recommendation from teachers at West.
This is no small accomplishment, as this program selects students from a very large and diverse pool of applicants from across the country and around the world.
