#AlliedHealthWeek: Meet Kehinde Femi, a physician assistant major in the Augusta University College of Allied Health Sciences.

“Coming from an underprivileged background, I realized early on the need for healthcare in communities similar to my own. As a future physician assistant, I desire to approach healthcare holistically and beyond the clinical setting. My goal is to serve in a capacity where I can develop a personal connection with my patients. I wish to not only treat them physically, but to treat them far beyond their diagnosis by helping them improve their overall quality of life. This profession will provide me with the platform to have a greater impact on the lives of others, while also offering me more challenges and opportunities to grow.” #AHPsWeek

In honor of Allied Health Professionals week, we want to highlight some of our awesome students in the Augusta University College of Allied Health Sciences and ask them why they chose to pursue degrees in this dynamic field. #AHPsWeek

Meet Emily, a radiation therapy major.

“I chose to pursue a career in radiation therapy because of how unique, challenging, and fulfilling the field of radiation oncology is. You have to have a special heart to care for cancer patients, and although there are many tough days, making a positive impact in someone’s life is extremely rewarding and worth the tribulations. This job makes you realize that we have a lot to be thankful for, and it is a constant reminder to never take anything for granted and to always have an optimistic attitude. I plan on continuing my education by pursuing a Master’s Degree in Medical Dosimetry, and am looking forward to making a difference in the world of Allied Health.”
