My summer of 2015 was dedicated to two internships; one being a Medical Assistant (200 hours) and another as a Physical Therapy Aide (80 hours). These internships helped me get an inside perspective of how nurses go above and beyond their everyday duties to ensure patient care, setting a standard for me to go above and beyond in terms of my education, my service to others, and in life. With the changes in college tuition having increased and state support for college students having taken a decrease over the last couple of years, this scholarship would benefit me tremendously in my goals to continue my education.

For the first time in more than 30 years, the American Cancer Society is changing its guidelines about when women should start getting regular mammograms, and how often. The new rules, published in today’s JAMA (formerly known as the Journal of the American Medical Association), say women at average risk should wait until they’re 45 to start getting mammograms. Women should get one every year until they’re 55, then get one every other year. Cancer researchers say breast cancers tend to grow more slowly after menopause, making it safe for women to be checked less often as they age. While mammograms are one of the best known tools for early detection of breast cancer, the new guidelines say doctors no longer need to do breast exams during women 's checkups.
