Hi, ’16s. I hope your summer is going well and you’re staying healthy! A few updates from our classmates.
During the Covid-19 quarantine, “The Trolling ’16s”—which included Hui Cheng, Juhi Kalra, Er Li Peng, and I—came in third place in a virtual Zoom trivia game organized by ’17s. We competed against teams of other Dartmouth alums and were excited to have done so well.
In June Hamza Abbasi graduated from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and began internal medicine residency at Scripps Green in June.
David Clossey graduated in May from Harvard Medical School and is now a resident physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
Although he is a neuroscientist by training, in early April Jared Boyce began volunteering in Dr. Viviana Simon’s laboratory at Mount Sinai to study SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic). He wrote in with the following, “The experience has been both exciting and humbling. It is a privilege to play a role in this fight.” He also continues to serve as co-chair for Children of Bellevue’s junior board. The team ran a fundraiser throughout May for Mental Health Awareness Month, complete with self-care events such as yoga, meditation, and a comedy event.
Victoria Li founded Meals for Chicago, an initiative to reinvigorate restaurants by routing bulk orders to them, which are then delivered to feed and nourish essential workers. As of April 29 it had fed more than 100 essential workers and was scheduled to feed another 100 essential workers at grocery stores, banks, and medical facilities. You can learn more and donate at mealsforchi.com and follow the initiative on Instagram @meals_for_chicago.
