Where are you doing your master's degree? How much help are you getting from the master's program? You have a lot of work with disabled children or elderly adults. Is there a reason why you are not pursuing a health career that works closer with these populations (PT's, OT's, SLP's, etc.)? What were your responsibilities at those centers?

I am doing my masters degree at NC state. Honestly not receiving much help from the masters, it is mostly set up to be a GPA and sGPA booster. I enjoy working with these communities, but I have always felt like I could do more to help these communities by becoming a physician and advocating for them from my physician, as I have seen that they are often left on the backburners by a lot of their treating physicians from talk I have had with the families of the elderly residents that I take care of and the families of the disabled children that I help. . At the Autism and Disability Center, we set up events such as Science Nights or Book Readings and monitored the children while they did their activities, and on occasion sat with them if they needed to be watched one on one. At the school, I sit in the classroom and help the teachers with anything they need, and also help watch the children and make sure that they stay on task, as well as interact with them through games, movies and activities.
