Update from former scholar: Hi District 7770! I graduated from George Washington University in Washington, DC, on May 13-15 with a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. I am thankful for the diverse didactic and clinical experience afforded me over the past 24 months, an opportunity built atop my global public health and communication study through Rotary. I have accepted a job in pediatric emergency medicine at Children’s National Medical Center in NW and SE DC and look forward to serving the medical needs of children in the District. I also look forward to using my public health background to pursue research projects both in DC and globally through this position. I am so thankful to Rotary – my experience with Rotary has shaped my understanding of community health and health disparities, knowledge that will make me a better PA and clinician. I am thrilled and so very thankful. Special shout out to Lou Mello for being the best sponsor counselor ever and keeping me connected to Rotary since my return from Australia, 5 years ago! My time with Rotary continues to shape me in my personal and professional life. Thank you!
