How Bass Connections Shaped Our Career Paths in Health and Medicine

For these five alumni, Bass Connections was a vital part of their journey to careers in health and medicine.

While undergraduates at Duke, they joined Bass Connections teams that took on challenges in global health and health inequities at home, from refugee healthcare to athlete brain trauma to the opioid epidemic. Through hands-on research with interdisciplinary teams of faculty, graduate students, undergraduates and partner organizations, they gained knowledge and built skills that propelled them into the next stage of their studies and careers.
