Elizabeth Wilcox is a senior in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine undergraduate program. With a background in chemistry and biology, she was drawn to the history of science program because, as she states, she finds that “the context is the most important thing to know when pursuing scientific progress... [since] ...complex problems require complex solutions.” Since matriculating in 2011, Ms. Wilcox has maintained a high level of overall academic performance as well as a commitment to service. She has served the OU community as a volunteer and elected secretary for the Art Museum Ambassadors at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and as a registrar intern at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. She is an active member in the student History of Science Association, and currently serves as the elected undergraduate liaison. Ms. Wilcox has represented the department on the CAS Dean’s Student Advisory Committee and at Sooner Saturday and Major/Minor Fair campus events. She was selected to participate in the 2012 Summer Study Abroad Program in Arezzo, Italy. Ms. Wilcox plans to graduate in fall 2013 and pursue a career in health law and public health.
