Stewart: FIWH: From Intern to Student Supervisor

This summer, I’ve been blessed to have the privilege of being able to continue to work with the Franciscan Institute for World Health (FIWH). I’ve worked with the institute since last May (2012) when I interned as a medicinal chemist at Abbott (presently AbbVie), a pharmaceutical company based in North Chicago. This internship was a pretty incredible experience. What’s even better though, is that this spring and summer I’ve been able to put what I learned into practice as I have stepped into a significant leadership role on main campus in this ongoing collaboration with AbbVie.
