D-1 Doc
The pulse of Colgate

Miller reads aloud questions from a provocatively titled book during her Sunday-night WRCU radio program on health, "What's Up Doc?" at the station in Drake Hall. Miller, who has done the show at Colgate for five years, started in radio when she was an undergrad at Cornell. Of the program, she said: "My guests and I share experiences and practical advice. We talk about common health problems and ways people can help themselves, their families and, their friends."

University and team physician, co-chair of the Wellness Initiative, radio talk show host, Raider sports fan, past medical staff president at Community Memorial Hospital, Southern Madison County Ambulance Corps (SOMAC) board member, CPR and first aid rescue trainer (and admitted jigsaw puzzle junkie) — after 26 years in Hamilton, Dr. Merrill Miller finds that her involvement runs through almost every vein of life at Colgate, and in the community.

"This is, and has been, the best career, in the best place!" exclaimed Miller while seated on a low steel stool in one of her medical examining rooms at the health center. "The people, from the president to the students, to everyone on campus — they're always a pleasure to work with. They make college a great educational adventure."
