Good evening. If everyone can please take their seats, we’ll be getting started in a few minutes. This is the Stanford Stethoscope and White Coat Ceremony 2018 and we’re here celebrating the beginning of our medical education. And today the incoming class will be coated with their doctors white coats and handed a stethoscope. It’s a time to just appreciate how happy my parents are and to appreciate everyone else’s joy and all the other students that are here today to celebrate this kind of this next step in their life. It’s a distinct honor to speak to you again as you begin your medical careers on this auspicious day. I’m delighted that you’re bringing your intellectual rigor, generosity and unbridled creativity to this campus as you begin your journey in medicine. Gita Abhiraman. I’m from New Canaan, Connecticut.
