Making Science Work
In his second year at Jefferson Medical College, Chris Frymoyer ’12, reflects on his interactions with the medical community, particularly alumni physicians. “There is always value in meeting with previous generations of physicians, especially those with Ursinus roots,” he says.
He became involved with Brownback-Anders early in his academic career. His mentor and moderator of BAPS, Professor Beth Bailey, eased his transition at Ursinus. They spent hours discussing topics such as medical school prospects, applications, and course selections.
“The impact of Brownback-Anders was a significant and invaluable resource,” says Chris. Informative presentations by professionals including practicing physicians, admission coordinators, and medical students, influenced the young protégé. Today, he gives back by helping rising pre-medical and pre-health students as they navigate their way through the medical school application process. “One person can make all the difference,” he says.
