Katrin “Kat” Patterson graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in May 2011 with two BAs. A Fulbright Student Researcher at the University of Botswana studying the gendered and psychosocial dynamics of HIV transmission, Kat is now in the process of applying to graduate schools of public health. She is pretty busy, so why a term of service? Kat responded, “I want to take doing service to a new level and challenge myself and I see this as a great stepping stone between undergraduate and graduate studies. I also want to make a positive and measurable impact upon my county, state, and country.” Kat will work with Ardmore Enterprises, whose mission is to empower individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Kat will create a new volunteer program that will bring more awareness to the capabilities of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
