Southwestern Oklahoma State University Associate Professor Dr. Lisa Appeddu recently presented a poster at the national meeting of the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP) in Baltimore (MD).

Dr. Appeddu presented a poster on a community service activity of the SWOSU Medical Professions Club. Collaborating with Dr. Appeddu on the poster were Sue Ball, instructor in the SWOSU Department of Biology, and Sarah Souvannachak, former undergraduate student and club member.

The poster related to a workshop held by the Medical Professions Club on the SWOSU campus to engage local Girl Scouts in the opportunities of health care professions. The workshop involved hands-on activities in the fields of nursing, optometry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy and surgery.

The SWOSU Medical Professions Club is open to any student with interest in a health care career. Dr. Appeddu serves as faculty co-sponsor of the club.
