A local student has been selected to participate in the Pennsylvania Area Health Education Center (PA AHEC) Scholars Program.
Mount Aloysius College nursing student Ashley Gallo will participate in the two-year program that offers clinical, didactic, and community-based interprofessional learning for students.
“I believe Ashley’s participation in this program reflects her commitment to the Mount Aloysius core values of mercy, justice, hospitality, and service,” said Julie Luetschwager, Ph.D., RN, dean of the School of Nursing. “Ashley used her education to seek out an opportunity to gain additional knowledge, skills, and attitudes about serving rural and under-served communities. We are very proud of her.”
Gallo, of Duncansville, will participate in regional, interprofessional teams and gain knowledge and experience in patient-centered population-focused healthcare.
