A.T. Still University-Arizona School of Health Sciences’ (ATSU-ASHS) physician assistant studies student, Sydney Berger, was awarded a scholarship through PHD420, Inc, a non-profit organization providing comprehensive cannabis education to healthcare providers throughout the world. Berger, a second-year student, was awarded the inaugural Health Care Student Writing Scholarship after submitting her paper, “The Dangers of Vaping.”
“I was motivated to submit an essay on this topic because I had very little knowledge about the effects of vaping and felt like it would be very useful information to understand for my career and future patients,” Berger said in a statement announcing the award.
Berger chose the physician assistant profession due to her strong desire to help individuals with their health, primarily to educate them on conservative treatment options prior to more invasive ones.
Berger will graduate from ATSU-ASHS, Friday, August 7, 2020, earning her master of science in physician assistant studies degree.
