A family affair at University of Saint Joseph Symposium Day

Callie Veach, fourth from left, a junior nursing student at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, shares her artwork she presented at the school’s Symposium Day on April 18. Inspired by her family, Veach described the correlation between biology and art, and how art can give her a positive advantage to caring for her patients. Veach’s grandmother is a nurse and her father is an artist, influencing her to pursue both disciplines while studying at USJ. With Veach are, from left, her sister Audre Veach, grandmother Irene DiPace, mother Donna Veach, and Michelle Kalis, USJ provost.
