Where are they now – Sarah Birkholz

Sarah Birholz graduated from Drake University in 2014 with my BA in Biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology.  She is currently in her second year of medical school at Creighton University. While at Drake, she was in the Honors First Year Seminar her first year and therefore lived on the Honors floor. Through this, she benefited from getting to know other students in the Honors program who would be in my Honors classes throughout her time at Drake.  As part of the program, Megan took Honors courses and the Senior Thesis. Birholz enthusiastically explains, “The focus of the Honors program on discussion based classes helped me to better be able to communicate with others and feel more confident in being able to support my opinions.  This is especially beneficial in the organizations I am involved in and working with others on these boards.  My Honors thesis most benefited me in my career as it provided me the opportunity to delve into the history and background behind my clinical research project regarding tourniquet applications.”
