My name is Morgan Barnett and I, too, am a Human Biology major. I am going to be a sophomore this fall and an RA in Holmes Hall (I am in Lyman Briggs like many of my residents will be). I have declared my major as pre-med, and plan on attending Michigan State’s college of Osteopathic Medicine upon my graduation. I have no prior experience with medical anthropology, and that is why I decided to take this class. I am extremely interested in the cultural adaption aspect to different medicinal practices, and hope that this course enhances my understanding of the perspectives toward medicine in general.
This summer I have been practicing yoga and meditation daily. My summer ritual involves practicing yoga and working at a farm to table restaurant in White Lake, MI (The Root Restaurant and Bar). I eat a plant-based diet (vegan), which some people find interesting and some people don’t. I also love music and acting. I play the clarinet, and last year I had the opportunity to play in the school of Music’s concert band. I am also a singer. The first picture I posted was of “the quartet” in the Wizard of Oz when I played the role of Dorothy Gale. The second is from before I saw Wicked (for the fourth time) in London last summer. The third picture of me with a green-smoothie in hand was also taken in London, and the fourth is from my vacation up north (taken yesterday from Mackinac Island)!
