Syliva is a rising Global Health senior. She is an aspiring PA and hopes to work with underserved communities as a future PA. She would like to go into a primary care setting to provide necessary preventive health care to those who struggle to access it.
“I believe that the interdisciplinary knowledge that I gained from being a Global Health major will help me achieve this goal and be able to help and support those who need it most.”
Sylvia spent 15 months volunteering with COPE Health Solutions/Scholars Program at the St. Joseph Hospital of Orange in Orange, CA. This organization gives first-hand experience to undergraduates of what working in a hospital is like. Health scholars receive direct patient experience as they aid medical staff, mainly nurses, with caretaking activities from ambulating to bathing to giving vital signs.
