Doctor-in-training Nathan James is a difference-maker.

It took one medical mission trip to the Philippines to inspire Nathan James, a dual biology-chemistry major, to become a doctor.

As he heads to Indiana University Medical School in the fall, he sees philanthropic medical work as a natural extension of his education.

“I’ve met a number of physicians who do medical mission work full- or part-time. Here at home, we have physicians who donate care for the poor at Matthew 25 clinic, and I am interested in that kind of work, too.”

Scholarships open the door so graduates can contribute, Nathan said. “Not having the debt loom over their heads is a huge help, and lets them take steps to do what they envision.”
