❤️❤️ For our second #valentinesday love story, we're pleased to share an update from alumni Laura Page, MD ’11 and her husband, Michael Compton, MD ‘10. They met during Laura's first year at the School of Medicine at the University of Virginia and have been married since May 2011. "Our son, Daniel Wilder Compton, was born on November 14, 2016. Fun fact: Helping ensure Daniel's safe arrival were two OBs with UVA connections – James (Jim) Edwards, MD'10, Michael's classmate from UVA, and Megan Barrett, who completed OB residency at UVA. We love that Danny's ties to the 'Hoos start at birth." Thanks, Laura and Michael, for sharing your story!
❤️❤️ Today, in honor of #valentinesday, we'll be sharing the stories of two couples who met at the #UVA School of Medicine. First, we introduce you to Monica and Patrick Melmer from SMD'17. "We met at Arch’s on the Corner during RA orientation. We were on the same RA staff in Tuttle dorm during undergrad, where our first dates involved staying in with a pizza and studying our pre-med coursework. We were married in the UVA Chapel shortly after Final Exercises in 2012. It was the blessing of blessings that we both had the opportunity to return to Grounds for medical School."
