Steven Em, Commonwealth Honors College alumnus, was featured in the Boston Globe in an article titled "From the Killing Fields to the Healing Arts." Em recently graduated from the University of Massachusetts Medical School and will continue his studies at New York Medical College at the Metropolitan Center of New York.
Uniquely inspiring about Em's story, is the difficulties he and his family have overcome. His parents survived the genocide in Cambodia under the Pol Pot and Khmer Rought regime and met in America at age 17. The article details his families journey and the challenges that Em has persevered through to reach this most recent achievement.
