The Medical Humanities Initiative has been the highlight of my academic experience at Georgetown thus far. Taking medical humanities classes encouraged me to declare a history major with a medical humanities minor after I became interested in historical research of public health from taking a course on pandemics my first semester at Georgetown. My major and minor complement each other extremely well and have allowed me to focus my undergraduate study on the history of medicine. Studying medical humanities has also become imperative to me since living through the covid-19 pandemic has proven to me how important it is to bring a social, cultural, and historical approach to medicine and public health.
