CLASS OF 7T3
Dr. Helen Batty is working on a profile of the Class of 7T3 for next year’s reunion. Helen writes, “Progress on data analysis of my long-term class survey was slowed down in the past couple of years by pandemic disruptions, but I’m still hoping to have big-picture highlights to present next year. Thanks to so many of you who have completed various versions over the decades. One particularly interesting phenomenon is a group of impressive classmates who juggled their medical careers with parenting four, five, or six children. Anybody in this group who would like to describe their strategies for success and survival in a short or long email message to me or on a Zoom chat would be most welcome to contribute their insights. Another question I have for everyone is: ‘Are you still working in some kind of medical area? If so, how many hours a week? Or, what is the date when you retired?’” Classmates can email this information to Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
