Sounds Good! I’ll be at the pool with camps until about 2:00. How long will your meeting be?

Thanks so much for that gesture! Venetia needs all of the encouragement and reassurance that she can get from knowledgable professionals such as yourself. I am sure that she would enjoy meeting you in person as well.

Thanks for your response! I don't know what Venetia's immediate plans are for grad/med school. I believe that after completing this Summer program at U.M., she would like to work in her field of Exercise Sciences, and take a couple of Science classes which are prerequisites for most Med Schools. Give her a call! Maybe after speaking with her, you can make some recommendations or suggestions. Thank you for your concern. - Ric

You have accomplished what my youngest daughter has aspirations of becoming. My daughter, Venetia recently graduated from the University of So. Fla. with a degree in Exercise Sciences. She is presently enrolled in an MCAT prep. course at the Univ. of Miami's Miller School of Medicine. Give Venetia a call of encouragement. I am sure that she would be happy to hear from you. Her number is (954) 662-9344-C, E-mail:venepowell87@msn.com. When time permits, come to South Florida and allow me to take you SCUBA diving and enjoy some beneath the sea beauty. - Ric Powell

Hey Dr. Jackson,
When you have a second, I could really use some of your expertise.

Yeah it looks great. I told Shaun I might have to make some things up, so I can keep up with you.

Sounds good. Just let me know. How was the move?
