Liz Hetterly

Senior, Class of 2013

Major(s): Biological Sciences & Dean's Scholar in Global Health

Why I chose UDHP: I really liked the idea of having small, discussion-based classes that would be unique and challenging. That's still my favorite thing about the Honors Program—being able to take Honors classes.

What I Am Most Involved In: I started a chapter of the organization MEDLIFE (Medicine, Education, Development for Low-Income Families Everywhere) here at UD two years ago. As a MEDLIFE chapter, we raise money to support mobile health clinics and development projects in Peru and Ecuador. I've also had the opportunity to go to both Peru and Ecuador with other students to volunteer in the mobile clinics. Everything I've done with MEDLIFE has been rewarding and influential, and it's been amazing to watch our chapter grow from just a few dedicated people to a successful organization with over 50 members.
