Weinberg credits Iowa for giving him the groundwork to launch so many successful paths.
“They taught me how to think,” he says. “You learn very quickly how to study, how to pick out what’s important. I never got into anything in my career without studying it first, and all that came from my medical school education at Iowa.”
