Benedicta Pongo was our fifth Trevecca University Physician Assistant student to come and work with Dr. Haun. She came with an extremely useful skill; she was a Ghanaian and could speak Twi! This allowed her to communicated directly with many patients even if Twi wasn’t their first language they sometimes understood it better than English.
Benedicta was a huge help to Dr. Haun as she assisted on rounds, helped with note-taking and even joined her in the OR.
We look forward to more students coming through this great partnership.
