  • Personal statement: “The people [at Pitt] are what I remember and value the most. Doug Fridsma and Ellen Detlefsen were stellar; without them, I would not have graduated. I remember project group members; new babies; relationships blossoming and souring; sharing rooms at the annual American Medical Informatics Association Annual Symposium; incredible, mind-expanding teachers; and ever-present and knowledgeable staff. Faculty, staff, and students cared deeply for individuals and the program, and we had fun. Thinking back, I want to say thank you, Pitt, and even more, thank you Pitt people.”
