UNIVERSITY RESPONSE TO COVID-19 :
UB Physician Assistant Students Reap the Benefits of Cultural Immersion in Peru
From January 19-26, 10 UB Physician Assistant students traveled to Cusco, Peru for an eye-opening learning experience. Under the oversight of Adjunct Professor Dr. Monica Lockwood, they undertook this trip as part of an optional educational lab that would lay foundations for capstone course projects, a part of their final semester before clinicals that is now underway.
In Peru they visited several orphanages, women’s shelters and a more remote town, where they conducted sessions focused on health and wellness. They covered topics ranging from hygiene to exercise.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Connecticut is among the top 10 states with the largest increases in drug-related overdose deaths between 2013-17. To address the health crisis, the University of Bridgeport will host its inaugural College of Health Sciences symposium on this topic.

Shrinivas Bhosale pointed to the black-and-white image of a human liver. On the left side of the picture was a large milky blot of white. “There’s the tumor,” Bhosale said. “That’s what we’re looking at.”
In fact, Bhosale, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science, and a team of researchers are looking at the tumor in a radically new light; they’re using computer algorithms to produce state-of-the-art 3D images that reveal not just tumors’ volumetric size, but also their density.
