Sarah Peterson- 2019 Climb4KC Scholar

Sarah became interested in medicine after taking a Human Medicine course in high school and discovering her fascination with the human body. Kidney cancer specifically interests her because of its increasing prevalence in the United States and the ever-growing pool of research about treatment options.

She enjoys hiking, baking, and making music in her free time.

As a C4KC scholar, Sarah participated in the conduction of a literature review which was made possible by the C4KC funding. Without the funding, she would have been unable to spend so much time devoted to this work. She thinks this research will make the diagnosis of kidney cancer faster and more efficient in the future. Which will hopefully lead to patients easily understanding their condition and treatment methods, making the treatment and recovery process less stressful.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to conduct this research. Without the C4KC funding, I wouldn’t have been able to participate in such meaningful work.
