My name is Robert Rariden and I am a senior studying HPS through Lyman Briggs. My title is The Beginning of the End because I am starting to finish school after taking some time off for medical reasons. I received a kidney transplant about a month ago and look forward to getting back on track to finish my major. I am taking this class because I am interested in public health and find anything medical related interesting. Over the past two years I have been focusing on my health and trying to fish as much as I can in my spare time. Here is a photo of me fishing!
