1980s - Barela

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2001 - Spring


Alicia I. Barela, M.D. ’81, an obstetrician and gynecologist at Kaiser Santa Theresa in California, received the Alumnae Medal of Honor from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Mass., at its 2000 reunion celebration last June. The medal recognized Barela’s service to the college and her work as a member of its board of trustees. Barela has been chosen by the People to People Ambassador Programs of Spokane, Wash., as a delegate to China for two weeks beginning June 8. The program sponsors groups in various professions to meet with colleagues in other countries. This group will be touring hospitals, attending round-table discussions and learning about Chinese medicine.
