STUDENT HEALTH OUTREACH FOR WELLNESS (SHOW) held their annual banquet and two of our students were nominated, Saba Maghari and Alexis Spence (pictured left), for an Outstanding Health Professional Student. Alexis was named the winning recipient. The SHOW students also awarded Dr. Caitlin Cameron (pictured right) with an award – “Breakout New Discipline Preceptor.”
Alexis’ nominee lauded her as an exceptional health care professional student.
“Alexis is incredible. Within this past semester, getting to work with her, I have seen that Alexis is passionate, dedicated and thorough. Although she is a health professional student and has a busy workload as a pharmacy student, Alexis is always present at Clinical Task Force and Clinical Operations meetings, among other SHOW-related meetings. Her attention to detail and insightful feedback make her stand out. Congratulations to Alexis, an outstanding health professional student!”
This service-learning program SHOW provides a holistic range of services to vulnerable populations in the greater Phoenix area such as individuals experiencing homelessness, individuals from low-income communities, and individuals recovering from substance use. Formed in May 2013 by a dedicated group of students, faculty, and staff from Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and The University of Arizona, the organization is the first student-run clinic for vulnerable populations. Today, the clinic has served more than 1,400 individuals from vulnerable populations including individuals experiencing homelessness, individuals from low-income communities, and individuals recovering from substance use.
