Reid Thompson, M.D., center, and wife Lorraine Ware, M.D., front, share some wisdom with their white coat recipients, first-year Vanderbilt University School of Medicine students Krystian Kozek, left, and Jonathan Knowlton. Thompson and Ware are sponsoring the students as part of VUSM’s White Coat Sponsorship Program. The traditional short, white lab coats are distributed to first-year medical students in a special ceremony in August, and each student is matched with a sponsor, which can be the beginning of a supportive relationship. Sponsors and students were recently united at a donors’ reception. (Photo by Anne Rayner)
