RADNOR, Pa. (Sept. 1, 2011) – While some college students might head to the beach for the summer, a group of students at Cabrini College opted for an intense biology lab course on genetics. After completing the course, which was sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the students submitted their findings in the GenBank, a National Institutes of Health repository of genetic information.
“I love stories,” says Darryl Mace, Ph.D., “and that’s how I start my classes.”
Although he makes it sound simple, his stories weave intricate patterns throughout the fabric of history.
“I’ll tell my students, ‘I’ll tell you stories from people’s perspectives that will make you love history,” Mace says.
For Maria Elena Hallion, Ph.D., associate professor of Exercise Science and Health Promotion at Cabrini, embracing physical fitness as a way of life and a career was a decision she clearly remembers making—when she was in high school.
“I told people then that I knew I wanted to do something with exercise, but didn’t want to be a physical-education teacher,” she says. “I had no idea that at that time, the realm of exercise science and health promotion was emerging.”
