Mighty Viruses and Bacteria

Our world is ruled not by mighty giants or powerful kingdoms but by tiny germs; viruses and bacteria. We will have lots of fun hunting for them indoors, outdoors, and inside our bodies. We will be filled with awe as we watch them through a microscope, grow them in Petri dishes, and build models. We will learn about diseases, the human biome, and food. By the end of the week, we will gain a new appreciation for the good germs and the bad ones.

Catherine’s love for health sciences was born from chemistry. Her chemistry teacher was exceptionally inspiring and hoped Catherine would become a chemist. Even more, she also encouraged her to follow her heart. Before Catherine followed her heart to medical school in San Francisco, she did research lab work at the famed Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and Northeastern University. She was an AmeriCorps coach at a Boston public school and volunteered as an academic tutor.
Catherine has a B.S. in Health Sciences from Northeastern University in Boston and currently attends UCSF Medical School.
