2013 Lilly Winner Kaleb Kramer updates us with his medical school journey at Indiana University.

"I cannot believe it has already been four weeks since I started my second year at Indiana University School of Medicine. Medical school thus far has been a whirlwind of emotions, but I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every minute of it. I never thought that it would be possible to learn as much as I have over the past year. Having graduated from college over a year ago, I still feel the impact of the generosity of the Lilly Foundation and Decatur County on a personal and educational level every day. I am excited for the future, and I look forward to the day I can come back to our community as a practicing physician!"

💫 Not all heroes wear capes. Some heroes help make learning fun by incorporating Legos into the curriculum. I mean, did you see how excited some of them were when she unveiled the Legos? I totally get it - I would have been just as excited at that age.
