KEARNEY SENIORS SECURE INTERNSHIP AT CALKO MEDICAL

Recently, three seniors, Martina Astfanous, Carla Castrogiovanni and Christina LoPardo secured internships with Dr. Kodsi from Calko Medical Center. The students will be working with Dr. Kodsi on a research project testing a specific idea he has for a new drug that will treat an underlying illness. The students will test, analyze and log specimens to see if there is a significant statistical change that could show potential for the idea to be turned into a drug for further testing.

Carla Castrogiovanni said, “I am extremely honored and blessed to have been chosen for this amazing experience. This internship will give me insight into what I hope will be my future career in pharmacy, as well as discipline me and allow me to be exposed to real life situations. I am looking forward to this opportunity!!”

An internship is a wonderful opportunity to gain valuable work experience, strengthen a college application and in this case have the potential to make a difference in the lives of others. Look to our future newsletters for updates on the progress of this research project.
