Changing the world isn’t easy, you have to start small. I’d change the world by helping those in my community. I love living in Vermont. The homes, nestled deep in the woods, may be a few miles from each other but the neighbors always take time to catch up when they do see each other. One of the biggest problems in this community, and around the world, is access to medical care. I’ve experienced this first hand as an emergency medical technician. Patients who need immediate medical care have to deal with long drive times between their home and the hospital. Often these hospitals aren’t able to provide the care they need and the patient must be transported even further – often over two hours – to definitive care. I’d like to be part of the solution to this crisis by becoming a physician’s assistant and working in a rural emergency room (ER). Ideally I will even get a chance to serve another community with a similar crisis in another country. My goals are simple. I ‘d like to go to school and earn a degree as a physician’s assistant, followed by finding a position in a rural ER. While I won’t be able to change the world on my own, with the help of others we can help the world gain access to medical care.
