On December 20, 2017 the Anatomy and Physiology, AP Biology and Honors Chemistry students had the opportunity to learn from Miss Diana Hassan, a Physician Assistant Student from St. Francis University. Miss Hassan is a 2013 Western Wayne Graduate and will be completing her Master’s Degree in the Physician Assistant program in May of 2018. Diana spoke with students about her research on the disease Meningitis. Her presentation entitled Meningitis: A True Medical Emergency gave students information about the varying causes of Meningitis as well as symptoms and treatments. This information was particularly valuable for students who are college or military bound and will be living in close proximity to one another.
Miss Hassan educated students on the importance of seeking medical care if a person is suspected of suffering from Meningitis and classic symptoms that are associated. She also shared statistics and information on the varying pathogens that can cause the disease at different stages of life. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the disease . Diana then spoke to the students about her college pathway and how she attained her degree. Students were grateful to hear about such an important topic from a Western Wayne graduate. We are thankful to Diana for sharing her expertise and her career pathway with our students. We are wildcat proud of Diana and her accomplishments!
