Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Today, we'd like you to meet Elizabeth Kennelly from the Touro University Nevada School of Physician Assistant Studies.

Growing up in one of Colorado's poorest cities, Elizabeth witnessed firsthand the struggles of living in a rural area. After graduating from Touro's MHS program, she is excited to learn more in the PA program and work on the university's mobile healthcare clinic.

“Rural medicine really speaks to me,” Elizabeth said. “I wanted to go to a school that would help me make a difference in the community, and Touro emphasizes the importance of working with underserved populations. It was the perfect fit for me.”

Happy Monday, everybody!

In our latest edition of "Catching Up," we spoke with Matthew Demas, a 2017 graduate of the Touro University Nevada School of Physician Assistant Studies.

After graduating from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisc., Matthew spent six years in the U.S. Army before relocating to Southern Nevada and landing a job with LVMPD in 1999.

After spending nearly a decade in LVMPD's sexual assault division, Matthew chose to pursue a new career in healthcare. Upon graduating from Touro's PA program in 2017, Matthew now works as an emergency room PA for the Valley Health System.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

In our latest edition of "Catching Up," we spoke with William Perry, a 2010 graduate of the Touro University Nevada School of Physician Assistant Studies.

After graduating from Touro, William became the first Interventional Radiology PA in Southern Nevada. He still loves mentoring Touro students as they complete the rigors of PA school.

"I try as much as I can to stay involved with the university," he said. "In addition to working as an adjunct faculty, I’m a clinical preceptor for some of the PA students. Every one of the PAs I’ve hired has come from Touro."

You can read the rest of William's story right here! :)
