Consuelo Alvarez featured in iBioMagazine interview

In the newest issue of IBioMagazine,  three Genome Consortium for Active Learning (GCAT) members, including Dr. Consuelo Alvarez, are featured: Consuelo Alvarez, Edison Fowlks, and Todd Eckdahl and tell short stories about how they got into teaching college biology. Edison was way ahead of his time as an African American biochemist bringing research to HBCUs. Todd was the first in his family to go to college. Consuelo tells her story in Spanish (a first for iBioMag) of coming to the US from Ecuador. The intent of the video is to encourage students from underserved populations to explore careers in science.
