In Pursuit of Dual Passions

In Pursuit of Dual Passions

Glenn Rennels’s colleagues thought it was “a lunatic move” when, in 1990, he gave up an endowed chair at MIT to work in computer technology at The Permanente Medical Group (TPMG). But for Rennels (Med’80), this was the ideal way to unite his dual passions for medicine and artificial intelligence.

With the opening of its Williamson Translational Research Building (WTRB), the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth hopes to move discoveries more rapidly from lab to clinic.

Every year, the Medical School welcomes students to the profession in the White Coat Ceremony. In an increasingly informal age, what does it mean to wear a white coat? Geisel students and faculty talk about the history of the ceremony and what it means to them.

A gift from Dr. Norman Payson ('73) will help ease the financial burden of medical school for students at Geisel. On a recent visit to Geisel, Payson met with students Rachel LaRocca (left) and Bridget Curley.

Giving Back, Paying Forward

Giving in support of student scholarships feels good. Dr. Norman Payson (’73) can attest to that. The Geisel alumnus and his wife, Melinda, recently made a $1 million gift that brings their total giving to scholarships at Geisel to $3.5 million.

Geisel medical students and faculty help keep the Good Neighbor Health Clinic running, enabling local residents to obtain primary care.
