Heather Kaluzniak- 2018 Climb4KC Scholar

Heather grew up in Plymouth, MN. Her “grandpa” is a family physician and was her source of inspiration and interest in medicine growing up.

Heather finds kidneys interesting because they work to maintain homeostasis. She worked on the nephrometry project with the other C4KC scholars and is proud of what the team has achieved. She hopes that the research “will be able to give patients a little more insight into their disease and their options.”

Now a stellar medical student at the University of North Dakota, Heather extends her thanks to the C4KC donors, as their contributions allowed the University of Minnesota to provide the financial support necessary for her to be fully involved and commit the time that she did.
