Hello, I am Austin. I am currently enrolled as a Biology student at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. This story will follow me through out the coursework of Client Diversity in Health Science, which is part of my required social sciences/cultural diversity core competencey classes. I've always taken a liking to natural sciences, more specifically health science. I began my journey as a Biomedical Sciences (medical technology) student back in 2011 where I began to fall out of line with the concepts that were being taught to me. I took a few years off and am now back studying Biology in hopes of broadening my spectrum and eventually studying holistic medicine at the graduate level. I live in Wisconsin along with my spouse and two, high-evergy dogs. I worked for a very large natural grocery chain doing admirable work that has pushed me even further in my professional development throughout the years. I look forward to utilizing this story to analyze, debate, and conceptualize the modern day difficulties presented by differing cultures and their relationship with western medicine.
