As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
As a junior, Emily participated in groundbreaking oncology advancements alongside peers and faculty in Emmanuel's chemistry department. The experience helped the biology major to see the vital impact laboratory research can have on patients in medical settings. Her undergraduate science courses in biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology-along with her hands-on involvement in laboratory projects-served as building blocks for her immediate appointment after graduation as a clinical research coordinator at Massachusetts General Hospital, her current graduate-level work in nursing at Boston College, and her future aspirations as a nurse practitioner.
"The foundation I received at Emmanuel prepared me to enter the challenging fields of scientific research and health care."
