Growing up in France, Eloise Passarella began dancing at the age of six. After a move to Montreal, she became fascinated, first at Collège de Montréal and then at Dawson College, by dissections, and decided to pursue a career in forensic medicine. In her first year as a candidate of the Medicine Class of 2020, Passarella, in addition to dancing four times per week, led the production of a calendar featuring herself and fellow Med-1s in some favourite campus locations such as the Strathcona Anatomy Building and the Osler Library of the History of Medicine. Classmate Karmin Yu served as the photographer and, “has done a fabulous job with the design,” says Passarella. Through the sale of the calendar, Passarella and her team were able to raise $2180 for the National Centre for Dance Therapy of les Grands Ballets Canadiens.
