Meet Israel

“I am absolutely in love with learning, people and adventure. I am a Public Health major with a concentration in Community Health. My goal is to serve an underprivileged community in North Carolina as a physician assistant. I feel confident that I will succeed because helping others is something that I am passionate about. Currently, I am treasurer of the ECU Pre-PA Club; sit on the executive council for Every Nation Campus Ministry; serve as an ECU Ambassador; and am a member of Sigma Nu Fraternity. I work twenty hours a week as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Thank you for all you do and for helping my biggest dreams come true.”
