Our very own Dr Whitney James, MD made the cut for Prescott's top 40 under 40 professionals!
Congratulations Dr James and thank you Prescott Living Magazine! See more on our Facebook page!
Melding the art and science of medicine, Dr. Whitney James applies outpatient #surgical solutions to alleviate brain, spine, and peripheral nerve damage caused by chronic pain, cancer, and other maladies. She specializes in minimally invasive surgical #procedures with outstanding aesthetic results. Under Dr. James’ care, patients are able to recover in the familiarity and comfort of their own homes.
Captivated by an article she read in a vintage Life magazine, Dr. James spent her formative years avidly studying the brain. Entranced, she felt called to pursue a career in neurosurgery. Through sixteen years of medical study and a residency in Tucson, Dr. James’ milestone achievements include a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience from Bates College in Maine; a research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health; a Fulbright scholarship for medical research in Colombia; a Master’s in health science and international health policy from John Hopkins University; and a Yale University Doctor of Medicine degree.

In the summer of 2018, celebrity activism was virtually everywhere. Chance the Rapper bought Chicagoist, Beyoncé hired the first black photographer to shoot the cover of Vogue and LeBron James opened a public school in his hometown. But with Chance now hinting at a mayoral run, and Cynthia Nixon trying and failing to do the something similar in New York, it should be pointed out: Celebrity activism has some serious pitfalls. Hit the link in the bio to read why we need to stop looking to celebrities for systemic change. 🖋: @abercrombieandtrish 🎨: @yartichok
The Bates's Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019, is fast approaching. Have you thought about submitting a workshop proposal?
Faculty legislation cancels all classes in observance of Martin Luther King Day. To observe the day and further King's work, Bates organizes a series of talks, workshops, readings, performances, and films that align with a theme related to the work and legacy of Dr. King.
On each MLK Day, workshops run from mid-morning through the afternoon, and they are essential to the success of the day. Their success depends on multiple and varied submissions from members of the campus community, including students, staff, and faculty.
Join in by submitting a workshop proposal centered on the theme "Lifting Every Voice: Intersectionality and Activism." Click on the link in our bio to learn more about this year's observance and to submit your ideas! (Theophil Syslo/BatesCollege) #batescollege#batesmlkday#community#activism

Anna Maheu '21 of New York City and Elliot Wilson '21 of Lakeville, Conn., inspect one of the Macoun apple trees that they grafted at the Plot last spring, when Bates EcoReps and volunteers carved it out of an acre and a half of unused, overgrown college land.
The Bates Eco-Reps hosted a Garden Party at the Plot on Tuesday, Oct. from 5-7 pm, with appetizers and live music. Swipe left for a few more scenes from the gathering.
Dining Services and the Bates EcoReps @sustainablebates established the fifth-acre garden, formally called the Plot, this year as an educational program. Garden interns get hands-on experience with commercial and sustainable food production practices — and the campus gets a working farm, albeit a tiny one, that one day will also serve as classroom and lab.
