Regina Miller, Graduating Class of 2011

June 29, 2011

Regina Miller graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from the Macaulay Honors College at CSI.

She is the recipient of several awards, including the Phi Beta Kappa Associates Award, Biology Department Faculty Award, and the Joseph and Eileen Carlton Memorial Fund for Service Award. She was also a member of the Dean’s List (2007-2011) and is the recipient of the Peter F. Vallone Academic Scholarship.

Ms. Miller’s experience with volunteering in clinics and shadowing doctors in New York has led her to an understanding that her passion lies in a clinical setting with doctor-patient interactions. She is currently working in a Neuroscience Laboratory studying the molecular causes of Alzheimer’s disease.

As well as volunteering at several New York hospitals, Ms. Miller has also traveled as far as Florence, Italy where she studied culinary science in order to research the correlation between proper nutrition and restoration of health, and Tashkent, Uzbekistan, where she interned at the Tashkent Breast Cancer Dispensary where she provided much-needed patient care.

Along with balancing her class time with her work volunteering and interning around the world, Ms. Miller has also found time to become an assistant swimming coach and a part-time kickboxing instructor.

Ms. Miller plans on attending medical school so that she may one day follow in the footsteps of the physicians she assisted in hopes of seeing the rewarding smile of a patient whose pain she has assuaged.
