MEPN students are busy juggling academics, clinical rotations, and family commitments, yet many even find time to volunteer in the community. Sasha Luecke, 2nd year MEPN, coordinates volunteers to participate in the Save-A-Life cardiac screenings for adolescents in the SD community. The most recent screening took place on Sunday, September 27th at Hoover high School.
Sasha reports, “The day went so well because of the great team work of all the volunteers. Even though the number of teens screened (561) was disappointing, 8 were found with some heart abnormality and needed follow-up examinations. Fortunately, none were at high risk.”
