Changing the Health Care Landscape in Washington
One such student is fourth-year medical student Pierce Claassen. The son of a third-generation farmer from Clarkston, Washington, Pierce grew up working on the family farm alongside his family and continues to help in the fields even in medical school.
Pierce hopes to go to an Internal Medicine residency program, and though he might match outside of Washington, he knows he’ll return to his roots in Clarkston and to the tight-knit community that has supported him in one way or another throughout his life. “Cougs always find their way back home,” he shared.
