I would like to dedicate last semester’s blog posts to one of our editors, Alexandra Bitcon, who passed away from an illness after our last class. Alex was an international student from Melbourne, Australia, and her dedication to the success of the blog showed in the quality posts she helped classmates produce, and in her own clever and analytical posts. Alex also brought energy, wit, and insight to our class discussions.
Alex’s family also has my sincere condolences. Seeing your child move away for school is already nerve-racking, and seeing that move take her overseas even more so. But having that journey end so suddenly must be heart-breaking.
Thank you for everything, Alex. We will miss you.
Donations are being collected for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in remembrance of Alex.
