Each autmn, incoming WRITE students will be contacted by their Regional Dean's office with a request to submit a written personal biography and a photo or two. The regional office will use this information to create a fun press release that will be sent to each WRITE student's site. The biography is a time for students to share a little about themselves and provide some details about the WRITE program. Typically the bios are posted at the clinic and hospital and sometimes the newspaper will use them to run a story on an incoming student.
The Regional offices will need written permission (via email is fine) from students to send out the biographies to the WRITE sites. If you do not prefer to have a biography posted at your WRITE site, it is not required.
