    Biology Major, Healthcare Ethics Minor

    Michael Borowicz

    "Healthcare Ethics has been especially beneficial to my education. I am currently studying biology here at Gannon University with plans to attend graduate school in the future. The ethics classes that I have taken allowed me to put STEM classes into a context. The minor has given me the skills required to take the information that I have learned and connect it to other ideas and apply it practically in my life. Additionally, my critical thinking skills have been honed through my philosophy classes, which allows me to be an all-around better student and citizen. I consider my health care ethics minor to be invaluable to my education."
