LAS Alumni Information
You know that something fundamental has changed in the doctor/patient relationship when physicians start receiving special training to learn how to “just say no” to patients. LAS alumna Martha Rosenberg recently attended a national medical conference in Chicago, and she was shocked to discover that many doctors are having trouble coping with patients who come to them expecting, even demanding, certain medications.
Since the Peace Corps was formed in 1961, a total of 1,973 Illinois alumni have served overseas, making U of I the number seven all-time producer of Peace Corps volunteers. Andrew Piotrowski, one of 54 Illinois graduates currently serving in the Peace Corps, shares his experiences in El Salvador and Cara Herman talks about her 27 months in Morocco.
Some 40 years ago, Steve Miller was a chemistry doctoral student at the U of I studying DNA. He knew next to nothing about petroleum, and so it was with some dampened optimism one day that he introduced himself to a campus recruiter from Chevron, one of the largest oil companies on the planet.
