Vanessa Hurley

Vanessa Hurley (editorial intern for Spring 2008) is from Santa Rosa, Calif., and a member of the Dartmouth Class of 2009. She's majoring in English and taking premedical courses, too.

Vanessa has been involved in a number of activities that demonstrate her commitment to the medical sciences and to communication. As an intern with Dartmouth's Women and Science Project, she assisted Children's Hospital at Dartmouth researchers compile data on infant and child nutrition and on Hepatitis B vaccination rates. She has been the associate managing editor for the Dartmouth Coalition for Global Health's journal STANDPOINTS, a collection of student- and faculty-written articles and essays about personal experiences in global health. And she is a writing tutor for students in Dartmouth's Research, Writing, and Information Technology program.

While Vanessa hopes to eventually attend medical school, she's also considering graduate programs in science writing. Her time at DARTMOUTH MEDICINE has helped to solidify her dedication to detailing the significance of scientific discoveries for a general audience.
