Four years ago, Lee Vang’s mother died of cancer. The tragedy motivated the UAA student to work toward a career in oncology, and the Alaska PreMed Summit guided her first steps. This year’s Summit is scheduled for April 1 at UAA’s Rasmuson Hall.
Mothers who choose to breast-feed their children now have a calm, private place to do so, here on the UAA campus. A ribbon-cutting (with refreshments!) will be held at 2:30 p.m., Friday, March 24, for UAA’s new Mamava lactation pod in the Student Union.
