Catherine Chu

Psychology with Departmental Honors


1998 Fellows

Chu plans to travel to the East to learn different approaches to understanding and attaining health. Deeply concerned with western medicine’s “lack of knowledge to understand and care for the whole self,” Catherine seeks to observe and immerse herself in a holistic and spiritually focused medical approach.  She will travel through the countryside talking with people from many types of backgrounds “about their medical, political, and spiritual opinions,” giving her a rich source of comparisons with the western medical tradition she is now studying.
