Blacksburg School Proves Compatible with EMU

February 24th, 2011

EMU’s first medical students at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) in Blacksburg, Virginia – Nathaniel “Nate” and Margaret “Maggie” Yoder, both ’08 – “are having a tremendous and challenging experience in a medical school that feels like a continuation of the EMU ethic of service and care for the less fortunate,” reported Elwood Yoder ’81 after visiting them at VCOM. Elwood and his wife, Joy ’81, are the parents of Nate. They timed their visit to coincide with a mid-November 2010 ceremony marking the young couple’s transition to being white-coated health-care providers (though still in training, of course). Earlier, VCOM sent Nate and Maggie to the Global Missions Health Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.
