Comments from past LLC Members:Student DC Trip

"This has been a great experience, especially with getting to know other people in your major and making friends. Going to the trauma center in Pittsburgh was amazing and really showed you what being in a hospital is like."

"What I really thought was cool was our professors came to the apartments and led study groups or conversations about working in health fields. You got to ask questions and learn things differently. The trips were awesome too."
-1st year Respiratory Care student

"Definitely going to DC was the best. Going to such a big organization like the National Institute of Health was pretty significant.  I also liked that our professors went with us and could give us advice on how to have the best experiences for a future job." -1st year Nursing student
