Ben Cerel ’09 is one step closer to his dream of becoming a physician. He recently celebrated his White Coat Ceremony surrounded by family at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine. Ben was inspired to pursue medicine after his own experiences with an acute illness when he was 18-years-old. He was awestruck by the dedication of the doctors, nurses, and residents who helped him recover and regain his strength. He hopes to emulate their lifelong commitment to serving others in need.
