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! :)
