Mrs. Rupert's Anatomy class video conferenced with a statistical geneticist Brooke Wolford, in early April. Brooke is a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan. Students in Anatomy learned about Brooke's graduate-level research which is finding a genetic linkage in cardiometabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes and contrary heart disease. Students also learned about Brooke's past and future career paths. Doane Academy would like to thank Brooke for speaking to both Anatomy classes throughout the school day, for sharing about her research and experiences as well as answer the thoughtful and insightful questions that our students asked throughout her discussion.
