I currently am a junior Nursing major and Psychology minor at the illustrious Winston Salem State University. My choice to attend a HBCU has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my twenty one years of life. It brings my heart so much pleasure in all thing that I do at my HBCU. Deciding to enroll at a HBCU is something much bigger than myself. I am my ancestor’s wildest dreams and it is amazing knowing that I am apart of an institution tailored specifically for the African American community. My entire life, I knew that I am destined to receive my college degree from a HBCU. There are numerous reasons why I chose an HBCU from the diversity, to the family atmosphere with peers and staff, to the overall feeling of black excellence all throughout the campus. With diversity, you have several different
Since I first came to college I’ve had the opportunity to discover myself and who I am as a person, and here is what I can tell you. I’m a modest consistently hard working individual who continues to set goals for herself. I take responsible for my actions when things go wrong rather than look for others to blame. I am a person who is committed to constructing something larger for the benefit of others rather than personal gain. I am a person who believes in teamwork and open communication. I also believe that my time as a student ambassador on the LSUA campus and as a nursing student in clinical has allow me to gain the experience that I need in the leadership role. These are all qualities that I hope to bring with me if I am granted membership.
I would like to be apart of ASB because I’m interested in helping Medea be the best school it can be. I always like to learn new things and I will appreciate new experiences learning from seventh and eighth graders. I am responsible and I am excited for my leadership skills to be tested. Also, I will gain more responsibility and learn more leadership skills throughout my time in ASB. As part of ASB, I will be able to work with other students who have similar interests and want to be fellow leaders at Medea.
I competed in the HOSA district regional competition during my junior year and placed in the top five for my health career display. Subsequently, I went on to compete at the HOSA state competition, which showed me many of the possibilities available for a career in the field of healthcare. I have been a HOSA officer during both my junior and senior year. At HOSA annual leadership conferences, I have packed thousands of meals for Stop Hunger Now. These meals are sent to schools in impoverished countries, such as Haiti, thereby promoting education while reducing world hunger. I am proud of my contributions to this
Currently, In Canada we have a universal health care, what this means is that medical services are provided to every Canadian citizen paid for by taxpayers and also by revenues collected from leading industries. There has been a huge controversy over the last couples of years, on whether we should remain to have universal health care system, privatized or adapt to a mixed health care system. Canadian health care should not be privatized because health care should be available to everybody regardless of their income.
I feel that it is paramount to respect my peers and my leaders. Respect is something that I value a lot and always have. I have always had respect towards my fellow classmates and the leaders that try to teach me new things. Through respecting others and my leaders, I think that it will augment our relationships so we can work together and make an
Many Americans were led to believe that the introduction of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2009 would put an end to disparities in health care access. While it did improve the situation for a small percentage of the population there are still many Americans who lack access to good quality health care. Health care access in America is determined by money and those in lower socioeconomic groups frequently tend to miss out on adequate care. In a recent health care report by the national health research foundation Kaiser Family Foundation, it was noted “health care disparities remain a persistent problem in the United States, leading to certain groups being at higher risk of being uninsured, having limited access to care, and experiencing poorer quality of care” (Kaiser Family Foundation). The current health care
I want to join Phi Delta Epsilon because it would provide me the chance to build lifelong connections and gain networking opportunities. Most importantly, I see myself forming a bond with other members, studying and sharing memories of what it’s like to be a premedical student at UMass Boston. The ability to connect, strive for success and learning from others with the same goal to attend medical school is what I’m truly seeking as a hopeful applicant of PhiDE. Joining the fraternity is the beginning phase of my strenuous road to become a successful physician.
I can contribute my knowledge of social justice and ability to be a community servant to this organization. My long-term life goal is to become a hospital owner in multiple underrepresented areas and foreign countries. Being a community servant, one can build character while helping open doors or provide opportunities for those who are less fortunate. I’ve read the many articles of the large groups of Alpha men graduating from Meharry Medical College, that have had such a huge impact on the surrounding communities by giving a helping hand when needed. It’s the small things that count and makes me eager to join the previous groups of male leaders striving to achieve their goals, which defy all odds against
Similar to other immigrants my family history is somewhat compelling. Starting with my grandfather who was exiled out of Egypt in 1959 primarily as a result of the "decolonization process and the rise of Egyptian nationalism”, my immediate family and I also left France in 2004 as a result of rising tension against Jews. The migration of my grandparents and parents, from a young age, cultivated a sense of determination in me to overcome obstacles. Arriving in Miami at age 5, I had to learned my third language, English, in order to attend school. I was determined to and successfully lost my accent and got tested into the gifted program after a year of school. This determination has continued through high school where I was accepted into the Scholars Academy.
My passion for helping and supporting those whose economic and financial standings have hindered their growth in our society, has driven me towards social work. I feel I have exhausted every possible avenue in my current degree field. Pursuing a master’s in Social Work, will give me the diversity that I need, while aiding me in bringing my dreams of working more in depth with clients, by helping assist them with their individual needs and issues to reality. The Social work field also offers versatility which allows me to work in many dimensions, such as clinical, case management, and many other composites which enables me to help every population. Becoming a social worker gives me other benchmarks in which I can use to evaluate programs,
There are many positive attributes and assets that I possess. One of them is I am hard working; this will help our FFA chapter because I will venture to make a better and stronger chapter. Another positive attribute is I am reliable; I will strive to be at all of the meetings and activities that the chapter will bestow upon me. Last of all, I am a leader because I am passionate about the things I do while being open minded to the opinions of others. The FFA Chapter has many activities for members to participate in. One of the FFA activities that I participated in is the Troy FFA Greenhand initiation. This activity gave us an opportunity to step out of our comfort zone and meet new people. One of the stations we went through gave us an opportunity
I strongly believe I am an excellent candidate for your program because I am focused, hard-working and passionate about offering help to communities. I also have good insight into the economic and infrastructural processes required to accomplish sustainable change in preventive medicine and generally in the healthcare sector of my country. Born and raised in rural southern Nigeria, I have traveled through various regions and even more frequently in the last three years, and am aware of the core health and economic challenges facing my country. A post-graduate training in public health will enable me to demonstrate wide competency in the field of public health, allow me to be effective as a credible voice for positive change to existing health programs and also provide a fine theoretical background to maximize the practical basis upon which I have practiced as a full time healthcare professional for the past two years and volunteered at various medical missions since my undergraduate years. This program will also allow me to relate to professionals who share my goals at both colleague and Faculty
Social work is a career that I have recently become interested in pursuing. I spent many years with misconceptions concerning the sector. However, following three years of working close by these experts, I have picked up a more profound comprehension of the significance of the work.I am especially interested in working in child welfare along with terminally ill children. I have got to a stage in my career where I have started to search out instruction that will make me more efficient in creating plans and providing services for vulnerable people. I am confident that the skills that I will gain from completing a social work master’s degree will help me collaborate with people in need and aid sustainable growth in their lives.
Recently, time was spent observing and waiting at a doctor’s office. The practice is a small, one doctor general practice. Sign-ins are done on individual slips of paper, and left on the counter, then patients sit and wait until called. In the waiting room, the doctor tried to mitigate aggravation for those waiting by providing a television, a variety of recent magazines, and various medical brochures. The office was quite busy due to the ongoing flu epidemic. Upon arrival, there was one person in the waiting room, five that arrived later, and at least 5 in the exam rooms. Being a doctor’s office, they utilize a combination of prioritization based on the level of illness or injury followed by appointments, then walk-ins. The waiting time to get into a room was 38 minutes or 33 minutes past the appointment time, and several patients that arrived later had already been taken back. Once in the exam room, there was nothing to occupy your time except a few medical posters on the wall, and the staff was not seen or heard from. By the time the doctor arrived in the room, the waiting period had grown to 68 minutes or 63 minutes past the scheduled appointment time. The doctor was in the office for two minutes before being called to take a phone call. When he came back, the appointment lasted seven minutes. Overall, a simple follow up appointment cost an hour and twenty-five minutes of the patient’s time, and this did not include a trip to the pharmacy to fill
