Major: Advertising & Public Relations I worked with the team that was responsible for promoting the film, "A Team of Their Own," a documentary about the history and women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. My responsibilities included scheduling dates, times, and locations for the film's premiere in Rockford and Peoria, Illinois, homes of the Rockford Peaches and Peoria Redwings teams.
Major: Health Professions I sat in on bed meetings, which was an overview of how full the hospital was for the day with beds, how many nurses they had on as well as PCA's and trying to make sure that every floor was staffed correctly and just an overview of what the day may look like with surgeries, patients getting discharged, etc.
Major: Health Professions As an intern within the Hauenstein Center, I was privileged to provide care for a diverse population of patients suffering from a variety of medical issues. Most of my daily tasks consisted of working with patients by taking vital signs, providing help with daily activities such as bathing and eating, transferring patients to other units in the hospital, taking blood sugars, and learning how to provide specific care for different diagnoses. Through doing this, I was able to learn the roles of different clinicians on the unit and spend time with physicians, physicians assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, registered nurses, health care managers, and nurse technicians.
