Yep, you read that right. In addition to our for-credit students, we also have many individuals who audit or even visit classes. Several years ago, we had several men from Rochester who would drive up to audit night classes. One of them, Haidong Dong, was a research physician for the Mayo system.

Dr. Dong has been looking for ways to treat cancer. His team developed the drug that was used on President Jimmy Carter. Want to know more? Here’s the story from Mayo Clinic, and here is the story from a Rochester television station.

We are grateful for the contribution that Dr. Dong has made, and we congratulate him on the recognition that he is receiving.
