    I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Tracy Kedian, the Associate Dean for Admissions, at the UMass Chan Medical School in Worcester, MA.

This innovative curriculum fosters curiosity, inquiry, and equity through group and problem-based learning, along with extensive use of medical simulation. One exciting feature of UMass Chan is its commitment to serving underserved populations. With a focus on health disparities and public and community health, the school offers two distinct tracks with its regional campuses - the Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health track, based at Baystate Health Systems in western MA and the LEAD@Lahey track, located in Burlington, MA, that concentrates on leadership skills and health systems science to prepare future medical leaders.

    Dr. Kedian also provides valuable insights into the admissions process at UMass Chan. While the school predominantly admits students from Massachusetts, it remains an excellent resource for premeds from all backgrounds. Throughout this conversation, you'll discover a wealth of helpful advice for aspiring medical students, regardless of whether UMass Chan is your state school or not.

    Autisme is de toekomst
    Wanneer de conventionele wetenschap een collectieve karaktermoord pleegt op het autistisch brein in onze Westerse samenleving, wordt het hoog tijd voor een boeiende emancipatorische podcast die het dogma en de miskleun rond autisme weerlegt. Ann Verdonck, zelf autistisch en haar levenspartner Pol Dauwe, delen hun ervaringen en expertise over de schoonheid en relevantie van het autistisch brein voor de ontwikkeling en de toekomst van onze maatschappij. Dit is een podcast door en voor ouders van autistische kinderen en bij uitbreiding al wie te maken heeft met het fenomeen autisme. Een wetenswaardige hoogvlieger over ons, neurodiverse mensen.

Have you struggled with eco-anxiety, overwhelm & despair due to the constant negative narrative about the environment & the mass depletion of biodiversity? Do you feel a sense of powerlessness & hopelessness in the face of the inaction at governmental level?


    I’m on a mission to shift the conversation, searching out empowering solutions & evidence of what’s already being achieved, to restore our collective hope & remind us that we are not powerless bystanders.

    I provide you with a space that you can return to for constant hope and inspiration, knowing that by coming together as a community, it allows us to amplify our impact, as we discover the tangible solutions of how we can all get involved & embrace these ideas to create a powerful movement for positive change.

    So pull up a chair, join us in conversation & help weave these important messages into the world, whilst being empowered to make your own positive impact, to be part of the solution as we rediscover our true place in nature’s incredible tapestry.
