Thesis Thursday- Johnathan Blohm
My name is Jonathan Blohm and I’m a junior pursing a BS in Physiology here at the University of Arizona. I’m from Tucson and have lived here my whole life so coming to the U of A was always in the forefront of where I wanted to go after high school. My family consists of my parents and my younger brother although I have many extended family who also live here in Tucson which makes for fun Sunday dinner cookouts at my parents house every week. Both my parents are engineers so I’m the odd one of the family wanting to become a physician, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned from them it’s that perseverance is going to get me a long way. As a physiology major and honors student my academic goals are to be accepted to medical school this next year, with the hopes of eventually becoming a physician in Internal Medicine. To which would be so gratifying to work as a physician in the Tucson community after medical school and give back for everything this community has given to me. Lastly, my hobbies include cooking, hiking and spending time with my family and friends. I don’t mean to brag but I can always cook a good omelet for breakfast or steak for dinner which comes in handy on and before test days.
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.
Broadcast three times every Thursday on KXCI.org and 91.3 FM with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
Thesis Thursday is recorded at KXCI 91.3 FM community radio in downtown Tucson, Arizona.
