Q&A with Sarah Isaac, a Founder of LCW’s Pre-Medical Society

Category: Landers, LCW Students

Q: What are you majoring in at Lander College for Women?

A: I am a declared psych major and I am concurrently pursuing the requirements for an honors bio major, although I have not declared it.

Q: How did you become involved with the Pre-Medical Society?

A: I became involved with the Pre-Medical Society when I created it. I personally wanted to hear from doctors and other medically inclined speakers, and since there was no platform, I created one with Meytal Misrahi. We send out a weekly, well-designed email with an interesting article about an advance in research, treatment, or health perspective.

Q: The Pre-Medical Society recently hosted a lecture on the Affordable Healthcare Act, which was led by Dr. Edward C. Halperin, chancellor for health affairs and chief executive officer of New York Medical College. What prompted your interest in this topic?

A: With all the confusion regarding the changes in healthcare and several articles I read from the New England Journal of Medicine, I began to think, “what are the medical implications of health care? Would budget cuts affect the way medicine is diagnosed? Will doctors be limited in the types of treatment they can perform based on a priority? Will patient care deteriorate?” I heard so much about the political conflict and the consumer advantages and disadvantages, but nothing clear about how the ACA would affect the way medicine will be practiced in the future…. It is very relevant to pre med, pre-PA and NP students.

Mishloach Manot Here and Food for the Needy There

Category: Landers

Congratulations to everyone who took part in Student Government’s Mishloach Manot and Tzedaka Inititive!

Together LCW raised $300 for Keren Y&Y. Keren Y & Y helps over 1,000 families, in Israel, through the distribution of food coupons. Every dollar we gave went directly to helping these needy families, and towards adding joy to their Purim. We are so proud to have been part of this and commend Student Government for giving LCW another fantastic opportunity to help our community.

Happy Purim!
