Student Teaches Local Children About Health and Nutrition
Caitlin Krol grew up in a family that made physical activity and exercise a priority.
Now, the former college athlete and second-year Wake Forest School of Medicine student is involved in the School of Medicine’s Pediatric Interest Group – a group of future physicians with a passion for improving the health of children.
Krol volunteers with other medical students at MudPies Child Development Centers, helping young children become comfortable around doctors and showing them the importance of nutrition and exercise.
She is also a volunteer coach with Crazy Running, a local organization dedicated to improving children’s health through running.
Despite her demanding schedule, Krol plans to continue volunteering with children during her time at the School of Medicine and throughout her career as a physician.
