Anesthesiologist, Dr. Aaron Kendrick at Three River’s Medical Center in Louisa, KY, is currently mentoring her as she observes in the OR for 50 hours. When asked her feelings about the Biomedical Science Pathway, Cassidy replied, “Biomed is very important to me. It is a great experience and there are so many things that I have had the opportunity to do and see. One of the best things about it would have to be the people though. In biomed, it is a given that everybody has each other’s back even if you only know them through the class itself. Even though it is a tough and challenging class, it is also one of my favorites and I would never give it up.”
