An article presented by TIAA for the Huffington Post spotlights the work of Katie Stoudemire '03, the founder of Wonder Connection, a grant-supported program to help hospitalized children and teens foster a love of natural sciences through hands-on learning.

"That's why Stoudemire has made choice a pillar of her program, leaving the decision of whether and how to participate in Wonder Connection's activities completely up to the children."
