So October has been an interesting month so far. We are now taking Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology in addition to our current classes. We also participated in our first simulation lab. I really was fascinated with this because when I was researching this program it was something that caught my attention when I was reading the syllabus for Med Pharm. Basically we had a "patient" who spoke to us about his symptoms and based off of his symptoms we had to diagnose what he had and what to give him. I found this so interesting because as we treated the "patient", we saw how the different drugs were affecting his ECG. We learn about how these drugs will impact the heart but it was cool to see it in person. I really enjoyed this exercise.
This month I haven't volunteered that much because I have been studying and when I wasn't studying, I was under the weather. I only went in one day but I plan on going in more next month. This month I have done some more exploring of the city. There is honestly so much to see and do in this city, so every time I decide to explore, I try to make sure it is something new. This month I went to the WWII museum which is really nice. It is so huge, we only saw one exhibit. Personally, I didn't think I would like the museum but I was pleasantly surprised. I also went to the Riverwalk which is so pretty, I find it so funny that all these things are so close to me but its taken me till now to go see it all. Lastly, Halloween is today and although currently I am in the library, I did get to celebrate Halloween here in NOLA. Halloween here is absolutely amazing, there is so much to do for all ages and I am really glad I was able to participate.
See y'all in November!
