RUSM student Brittany Singleton (second from left) was recently featured in a Chicago newspaper for her volunteer work on the US Navy's recent humanitarian mission to Dominica. She's pictured here with (from left) US Navy Lt. Commander Faith Underwood, CNM; fellow RUSM student Aurelie-Pamela Seka; and Mersedes Greene, HM3/E4, US Navy.

RUSM student Brittany Singleton is featured in a recent edition of the Daily Southtown, a Chicago Tribune newspaper covering the Chicago Southland area. Brittany was one of 900 students who participated in the USNS Comfort hospital ship’s medical mission in Dominica.

The story highlights Brittany’s passion for learning the practice of medicine and her experience working with the US Navy on this humanitarian initiative.
