Hive Student Staffer Awarded Prestigious Watson Fellowship to Study Empathy

Harvey Mudd College senior and Hive student staffer, Kaitlyn Paulsen, was recently awarded the prestigious Thomas J. Watson Fellowship. Following her graduation in May 2022, she will embark on a year-long independent exploration outside the United States investigating “Caring over Curing: Endurance through Challenging Health Experiences.” Paulsen’s passion for cultivating deeper empathy and understanding emotional endurance in the healthcare system are two of the driving factors throughout her exploration. She “plans to explore countries that have different approaches to healthcare, identifying programs that seem to focus on the emotional well-being of patients.” Read more about the details of Paulsen’s anticipated Watson Fellowship, here.
