This Fall, Emily Holmes, Alex Griepp, Emily Craig, Jennifer Nordlund, Maria Hanson, and Annika Walter all ’18 were selected to experience what healthcare is like in Barrow and Fairbanks, Alaska for six weeks. They had the opportunity to do their Public Health and OB clinicals there while immersed in the Alaskan culture far different than Minnesota.
