Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences Occupational Therapy Tampa Bay Regional Campus-Student Wins International Society’s Video Contest

Occupational Therapy (O.T.D.) student won the 2019 Video Contest sponsored by the Society for the Study of Occupation USA (SSO USA).  The Society is a national community of scholars who engage in the dynamic exchange of ideas to support the global community of occupational science. It provides a forum that promotes and disseminates research in occupational science to the public, and in so doing fosters the theory and research of occupation in understanding humans as occupational beings. The basic science intersects with the profession of occupational therapy as well as other disciplines that promote the nature of occupation in its relationship with health and well-being.  More information about SSO USA is in https://www.sso-usa.org/.

Taylor Dingus created her video entry to the contest when she was on her second year in the O.T.D. program after researching the questions provided by the Society to include as content of the video.  The video needed to answer the questions: “What is Occupational Science? and How does Occupational Science benefit humanity?” Dingus’s award was announced, and her award-winning video was shown during the annual business meeting of the society during its annual research conference held in Scottsdale, AZ, in October 2019.  Dingus will receive her award during the 2020 annual research conference scheduled in October 2020, in St. Petersburg, FL.

NSU College of Pharmacy Students Impact Medical Mission

Six students from NSU’s College of Pharmacy traveled over 1,000 miles to Guatemala to provide pharmacy care to those in an underserved community.

“This medical mission trip is so much more than what I signed up for,” says Gabriella Nieves-Mártir, a P3 student from our Puerto Rico Regional Campus.  She continues, “It’s not just the knowledge you acquire and/or get to apply, is the complete experience that brings joy to you and plants a seed inside to keep wanting to help others.”

Hong-Chun (Amelia) Yeh, a P4 student from the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus who also attended the trip says, “This experience has broadened my horizons in the world of pharmacy and has nourished me to be a more caring person in my daily life.”

The College of Pharmacy prides itself in providing our students experiences beyond the classroom with the aim of preparing them to dominate in the profession while improving health globally.

NSU’s Tampa Bay Anesthesiologist Assistants Program Nationally to Become 2019 Anesthesia Trivia Champions

NSU Tampa Bay AA Program faculty and students celebrate the 2019 Anesthesia Trivia victory.

The 2019 American Academy of Anesthesiologist Assistants (AAAA) conference, held in the beautiful city of Indianapolis, proved to be a historical moment for NSU’s Tampa Bay Anesthesiologist Assistant Program. The Anesthesia Trivia competition, held annually during the conference, is an opportunity for all AA programs to test their existing knowledge and didactic training against all others. A team of four first-year students is selected to represent each program for the anesthesia trivia challenge. For the first time in the program’s history, NSU’s Tampa Bay AA program brought home the victory before a crowd of hundreds that included AAs, anesthesiologists, students, alumni, faculty, and directors from all AA programs.

The competition got off to a great start for all programs but NSU Tampa Bay quickly established the lead and never left room for the competition to catch up. The conference auditorium was filled to capacity with cheering in support of each program. Alumni joined their respective programs in celebration by wearing shirts specifically made for the team trivia challenge. However, no cheers were louder than those from NSU, especially as it became apparent that the win was inevitable. After two fierce rounds of competition, NSU Tampa Bay finished in first place and begin to revel in what would become a historical moment for the program.
