LLC Learns from Expert Cardiologist and Nurse Practitioner

Ashland University students have numerous opportunities to explore and learn inside and outside of the classroom. However last week, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences Living Learning Community called the "Health Professions Collaborative", had a unique monthly meeting where a local cardiologist and nurse practitioner came to share information with over dozen students about the field.

Last Thursday, February 11, Living Learning Community members and alumni were in attendance to hear Dr. William Polinski, cardiologist from Wooster, Ohio, discuss cardiac concerns for athletes and other cardiac disorders. 

Dr. Polinski was accompanied by nurse practitioner, Dr. Lisa Young, who teaches advanced simulation and complex medical surgical nursing in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Ashland University. Following the presentation there was a Q & A session for the students. Then of course, attendees were treated to snacks and door prizes which is a common theme at our monthly meetings. 

The event was planned by Dr. Karen Estridge, Advisor of the CONHS Living Learning Community. 

He did a wonderful job and focused discussions and learning toward sports and athletes too.
