Neuroscience program taught me how to make an impact

Camryn Resele ’21 said Carlow taught her how she can make an impact on someone’s life, whether it’s in the operating room or just passing another employee or visitor in the hospital’s hallway.

“Being that the IONM tract was so new at Carlow, I was leery of what my future career path might look like. My mind was almost instantly put to ease when I began clinicals and was able to use the education I received from Carlow and its Behavioral Neuroscience program and apply it to my field of work.”
