My applied project involved two different experiences. First, I shadowed a local dental hygienist. Second, I educated members of the Pemi Youth Center about nutrition and oral health. I chose this for my project because I wanted to learn more about a career in dentistry and also positively influence the community. This project allowed me to incorporate all of the disciplines I have been learning about and apply that knowledge. If you would like to learn more about my project, please click here.
My research article focused on Alzheimer’s Disease. I shared a personal story about my grandmother, multiple preventative measures, and information about patient care. This article expanded my knowledge about a very popular disease in our country. It also allowed me to analyze the disease from different perspectives. I chose this topic because I have been personally impacted by it and I know it is easy to relate to for a lot of people. If you would like to read my article, click here!
The Health Science program I created gave me the freedom to learn about what I care most about, people and science. All the courses I have taken, my applied project, and my research article have provided me with the knowledge to be successful in the world of healthcare. I will carry what I have learned and experienced here at PSU with me for the rest of my life in order to help people live healthier lives.
