Sawandi Salimu (Class of ’09, B.S., biochemistry) is busy this summer. With his sights set on medical school,
he is preparing to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and to begin his graduate studies in biology at
California State University, Dominguez Hills. Despite the rigors of medical school ahead however, he says he feels
prepared thanks to his experiences on a medical mission in Africa with physicians and other volunteers from the Anambra State Association (ASA), a nonprofit led by Nigerian professionals who now live and work in the United States.
