8/27/21 Nova Southeastern University SHARKAPALOOZA
Sharkapalooza was an absolute hit, and we now have a whopping 42 members in Pre-Podiatry Society at NSU. Tabling there was so amazing. We met so many great college students who are just beginning their careers at Nova, some of whom have been there for awhile. So many awesome conversations were had. We were actually situated right between the Pre-Medical Society and Pre-Optometry, which are big names on campus, so a lot of people who were interested in medicine were drawn (or pulled, haha) to us. We got to know them, asked them why they were interested in medicine, and what their goals were in "helping people". When I asked, “Have you ever heard of podiatry or do you know what podiatrists do?", they originally responded with "I don't think I want to be a foot doctor" or "no, not feet", but when I explained some of my own personal journey to podiatry and the breadth of opportunities podiatrists have in practice, their eyes lit up and they were engaged, started asking questions, got excited, and discovered something new! Seriously, these were some of the best conversations I've ever had and all of my board members truly felt like educators. I relayed everything I've learned from you, other DPMs, and in my research. Anyway, it was great.
