TTUHSC teams make WISE presentations

Women in Science Endeavors (WISE)Four teams comprised of students and alumni from the School of Pharmacy and School of Medicine shared their passion for science and medicine with local middle school and high school girls Nov. 14 at the 2016 Women in Science Endeavors (WISE) Symposium at Amarillo College.

Third-year pharmacy students Devan Craig and Cheyenne Wiley introduced the girls to the practice side of pharmacy by helping them make lip balm and lozenges. Third-year medical students Fizza Naqvi and Jessica Ginsberg led a group of their School of Medicine classmates who took the girls through a day in the life of a doctor by demonstrating instruments like stethoscopes, ultrasound machines and blood pressure monitors.

School of Pharmacy alumna Mandy Whiteside (Class of 2014) teamed up with current graduate students Shyanne Page and Heidi Villaba to demonstrate some of the basic scientific principles related to exothermic and endothermic reactions, while Sarah Willis (School of Pharmacy Class of 2013) used a glow-in-the-dark demonstration to introduce attendees to nuclear medicine and pharmaceutical compounding.

Women in Science Endevoers (WISE)WISE is an annual Amarillo Independent School District event designed to introduce middle-school aged girls to career opportunities in various science-related fields. Students and alumni from TTUHSC’s Amarillo campus have participated in the event every year since 2008.
