"By looking back at the history and roots of diseases and medicine it really helped further the understanding of modern day practices and opinions in the medical field. Wanting to go into a medicine based field myself I found it very valuable to learn about the social mindsets around diseases rather than just the scientific facts to know the roots of how certain social stigmas came to be."
