McKayla Michaud #seniorSpotlight #WCW

Senior McKayla exemplifies all of AXO's five values. The chapter will be so sad to see her graduate in April. At Beta Eta, she served as the first vice president of collegiate recruitment information, VP-CRI, for the chapter during the Fall 2016 Recruitment. She set the bar so high by leading with fairness, class, compassion, and a calm personality. Currently, McKayla interns at Southeastern Plastic Surgery where alumna Kristen works.

Other fantastic highlights about McKayla:  She attended AXO Convention; she worked on a MEDLife trip to Peru, and she received a Melbourne Alumnae Panhellenic Scholarship.

Yasmine Humeda- Intern through the CRISP Program

Yasmine Humeda is currently interning through the CRISP program, a clinical research internship

"I work under a preceptor who is a physician and also conducts research at the Mayo clinic. His name is Dr. Pujalte and is a family and sports medicine physician. I am now a co-author for one of his studies. I also came up with my own study that I am currently conducting and he will by my co-author. I will be presenting my research at a conference in Philadelphia in September. I am so excited for this amazing opportunity!"

My first week as an intern at Mayo Clinic has been one of the most incredible weeks of my life. Conducting research at this amazing establishment has been a dream of mine. I can truly say that the reality of being here is even better than that of my dreams. I hope that one day this place will be my home but next time as a Family Medicine physician

Donuts for DVA

On October 5, our Beta Eta Chapter held Donuts for DVA to raise money for The Tallahassee Refuge House. We raised a total of $5,974, and in honor of our PH sister Holly Cummins, we donated half of the money raised to Alpha Phi's philanthropy. We are so proud to be a part of this strong, supportive community at Florida State.
Thank you to our VP Philanthropy Mindy Do, her assistant for Donut for DVA Shelby Young, and everyone who was involved and came out to support this cause!

Caitlyn O'Connell- intern with Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare Animal Therapy

Caitlyn O'Connell is currently interning with Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare Animal Therapy!
"I visit patients at a variety of different places such as rehabilitation centers, pediatrics, the emergency room, and assisted living facilities with a volunteer and their trained therapy animal. The animals are supposed to help relieve stress, relax, and lower blood pressure in patients. I hope to gain a better insight in what I want to pursue for my career by having many new experiences at different places from my internship!"
