Kate Fukawa-Connelly is the Director of Health Professions Advising. She supports the progress of undergraduates and alumni as they develop into future health professionals. She is committed to getting to know all pre-health students holistically, so that she can guide them toward making decisions that will support their academic, personal and professional goals. She has particular expertise working with students who are the first in their families to attend college, and students who come from other backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine. Kate is a Chicago native (go Cubs!), a nationally ranked Scrabble (R) expert and a musical theatre lover.
