This will eventually lead to her writing her own prescriptions," notes Indiana's Gary Post-Tribune in a profile of 2004 DePauw University graduate Dayna Ingram. The article adds, "Ingram, 23, has just completed her first year of medical school at Indiana University in Bloomington." The story provides an update on Ingram, a past winner of the newspaper's 'Leaders of the Future' award, which recognizes academic achievement and community involvement.

"West Side High School’s valedictorian won the leadership award two years in a row," John Grant Emeigh writes of Ingram. "The Gary native graduated magna cum laude from DePauw University last year with a major in biology and minors in chemistry and psychology. After completing med school, Ingram hopes to become an obstetrician-gynecologist. If the second year of medical school isn’t difficult enough, Ingram also plans to teach gross anatomy to first-year medical students. Ingram said she doesn’t mind the extra work because ultimately, she would like to teach medicine after leaving private practice. 'I think DePauw Logo.jpgteaching at the medical school level would be fascinating,' she said."
