The recent arrest of Larry Nassar's former boss, William Strampel, makes me hope that the investigators at my alma mater are getting to the root of the problem in a somewhat personal way. The last time I donated blood, I talked with a woman from Traverse City who noted that her niece had been told by a medical school professor that--in a trip to a developing country no less--she needed to be less modest in her attire.
I didn't get the name of the niece or the instructor, but I sure hope that niece is being heard now, and if the instructor wasn't in fact Strampel, I hope Bill Schuette is closing in on him, too.
