Elizabeth -richards

Now in med school, Elizabeth Richards’ ’14 drive to become a doctor thrived at Earlham, helping her on her way to being the socially conscious doctor she aims to be.

It’s a balmy Sunday morning in a quiet neighborhood near downtown Seattle, with bright leaves slowly drifting down from the trees. At home in her apartment, Elizabeth Richards ’14 is studying the urea cycle — learning how our bodies get rid of toxic nitrogen. After that, she’ll move on to studying the spine, and then how the brain signals the body to act. “It’s fun,” she says about her day. “I love it.”

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
