Chloe Chien, MD, went to medical school because she wanted to „comfort, heal and save lives.“ But last year, the young doctor shocked her family and friends by withdrawing her applications to medical residency programs and instead turning her attention to creating a healthy-cooking course.“Friends keep asking, Dont you want to practice medicine? Dont you want to go back?“ said Chien, who graduated from the School of Medicine in June. „I tell them Im practicing the best medicine ever. Its preventive, its inspiring and its joyful. … Its so much more impactful than prescribing medicine one patient at a time.“
