Medical students run health clinic in the Jesuit tradition

Patient Ashley Meriwether, left, had a vision exam by Liesl Chi, a second-year medical student at St. Louis University, last month at St. Louis University’s Health Resource Center, 1408 N. Kingshighway Blvd. The center provides health care to an underserved and uninsured population.

The young man wearing khakis, a dress shirt and a white medical coat stepped into the waiting room and called out a patient's name.

He greeted the middle-aged woman politely, looked her in the eyes and smiled. "Hi. My name is Andrew. I'm a first-year medical student, and I'll be working with you. To start off, we're going to get your weight and height. Let's go to this first door, right over here."

SLU students building a culture of life on campus

As graduation approaches, college students are getting ready to make their transition, whether into a new career or maybe furthering their education.

But for college students who have made building a culture of life a priority in their lives, the questions they have go beyond what kind of job they will find or where they will live. Rather, they want to know whether they will have the tools to promote a culture that affirms life, no matter where their future is headed.
