Resident Reflections
Every Thursday at 12 noon during the Graduate School's fall, winter, and spring quarters

The Montgomery Lectures series addresses diverse topics within bioethics and the medical humanities every Thursday at noon. Following these lectures, Catholic Medical Association/Sheil MDs, residents, and alumni will rotate to facilitate a 15-minute conversation on faith perspectives. All medical students are invited to attend. These will take place on Zoom. Want to participate? Contact Carol Leitch Miller Dotson, Chicago Campus Minister, via email or call 312-533-1966.

Feinberg Student Leadership Team 2022

Marcos Duran

My name is Marcos Duran and I am a first year medical student here at Feinberg. I was born in Lima, Peru, but moved here to the US when I was eight years old, to the little town of Winnemucca, Nevada. Since then, my family has moved around quite a bit, first to Woodland Park, Colorado, and currently to Salt Lake City, Utah. I attended Cornell University for undergrad. Since arriving to Feinberg, I have been involved in not just CMA, but also LMSA (Latino Medical Student Association) and Docappella, Feinberg’s acappella group. I am excited to contribute to the faith community here at Northwestern and continue to share God’s Light!

Fabiola Moreno-Echevarria

My name is Fabiola Moreno-Echevarria, and I was born and raised in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. I went to undergrad at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez where I studied Microbiology. However, following Hurricane Maria, I decided to transfer to Johns Hopkins University where I completed my bachelor’s in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Currently, I am a first-year medical student at Feinberg and new co-president of the Catholic Medical Association and co-president of the Latino Medical Student Association. I am excited to step into this leadership role and share our faith with the Northwestern community.
