Campbell University’s Physician Assistant Program presented a $5,000 check to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina today to help grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
“As future PAs, many of us will treat children with life-threatening illnesses similar to those that are granted wishes,” said Kaitlyn Schmid, a first-year PA student at Campbell University. “And though we will work specifically on the medical end, we all know the significance of ‘play’ in their overall well-being and care.”
