If you find yourself in an emergency situation, a College of the Canyons student may eventually save your life.

Several students trained to diagnose diseases, treat illnesses and save lives at the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center as part of College of the Canyons’ 3rd annual Physician Assistant Expo.

Several medical professionals spoke to students and answered questions ranging from the profession itself to the application process required to attend physician assistant schools. Afterward, students networked with both professionals and other students who are looking to join the medical field.

Aaron Hunro, a student at the Marshall B. Ketchum Physician Assistant University claimed that “one of the biggest benefits for events like this would be the networking opportunities for pre-PA students to get to speaking to incoming PA students, to current PA students, practicing PAs as well as admissions representatives.”

Event promoters said it’s important to take part in school organized activities like the annual PA expo as well as take advantage of the benefits that College of the Canyons has to offer. They said events that allow students to talk to professionals to reach their career or education goals are fantastic opportunities to get ahead of the curve.
