Medical students flock to community meeting

A community meeting at the Yale School of Medicine to reflect on Annie Le GRD ’13 had to be moved from its original location in the Hope Memorial Building to the Harkness Auditorium at 333 Cedar Street to accommodate the roughly 550 concerned members of the medical school community who chose to attend.

University President Richard Levin, Vice President Linda Lorimer, Deputy Secretary Martha Highsmith, Security Director George Aylward and Chief Psychiatrist Lorraine Siggins were present to discuss new security measures being implemented on campus and answer questions from the community.

Although he was open to audience members’ suggestions that there be more police presence and camera surveillance in the area, Levin said those things may not have been enough to save Le.

“No amount of hardware can overcome the darkness of the human soul when an evil person decides to do a terrible thing,” Levin said.
