Three Glen Cove alums recently spoke to the Honors Anatomy and Physiology students about the transition from high school studies into pre-health majors in college. 

Caitlin Brown, ’15, a senior nursing major and varsity softball player at Wilkes University, shared her expertise on how to balance the rigors of studies and athletics, while Selena Guastella, ’15, a senior nursing major at Adelphi University and professional EMT for Northwell Health, encouraged students to seek outside clinical experiences while in college to make relevant what they learn in the classroom. Maria Krisch, ’16, a junior pre-medical student and undergraduate teaching assistant at Fordham University, explained study strategies and the requirements necessary to apply to medical school and other health-allied professional graduate programs.

“It is extremely valuable for my current students to get to speak with young, successful, pre-health majors who sat in their same seats just a few years ago,” said teacher Fran Krisch. “It’s a perfect way to end the year and shows the students that they really do have all the tools necessary to do well in pre-health majors if they choose to do so.”
