Post-Baccalaureate Premed Student Maisie Laud Creates Virtual Comedy Show to Support Healthcare Workers
Apr 22, 2020 Episode 4
University of Vermont Continuing and Distance Education

UVM Post-Bacc Premedical student Maisie Laud has a combined passion for comedy and medicine. While honoring the stay-at-home mandate and adjusting to remote learning, Laud decided to put her comedic talent and love for the healthcare industry to good use.

Growing up with what Laud refers to as "funny brothers" she discovered that she enjoyed making people laugh and was pretty good at it. She started a stand-up comedy club in college and tried to get on stage every chance she got. But it was her autoimmune disease of Celiac that led her down a path toward medicine. She is nearing completion of the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical program at the University of Vermont and hopes to pursue a career in gastroenterology.

Five stand-up comedians will join hosts Maisie Laud and Jeremy Rayburn in a virtual comedy show, Laughter is the Best Medicine, to benefit both UVMMC (& their COVID19 relief fund) AND Vermont Comedy Show.

Laud is hoping to raise $1,000 from the event and plans to match additional donations.

Comedians:
Kyle Gadapee
Emily Kueppers
Ash Diggs
Maggie Phelan
Paige Smith-Hogan
Hosted by Maisie Laud and Jeremy Rayburn
