This week at Wake Forest

Matthew Alexander 5K Memorial Race

The Wake Forest ROTC is sponsoring a road race in memory of Matthew Alexander on Friday, April 25. Alexander, an ROTC cadet and rising senior at Wake Forest, was aboard TWA Flight 800 that crashed last summer. Race proceeds will help furnish a new classroom named in the late student’s honor. The 5K relay will begin at 4:30 p.m. and an individual 5K will begin at 5:30 p.m. Both races will begin near the athletic field across from the university’s Worrell Professional Center.

Chi Rho Caps Successful Year

Surviving Medical Marriages

In an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Wayne Sotile, director of psychological services for Wake Forest’s cardiac rehabilitation program, says that marriages of resident physicians are at risk unless both doctors adopt a combat mentality to survive the grueling hours, extraordinary stress and time apart during medical training.
