JTNN Welcomes Newest Team Member
JTNN has added a new member to its team and is excited to have him introduce himself!
Patrick George, Intern
Hello! My name is Patrick George and I'm excited to be JTNN's newest intern. I was raised in Palmer, Alaska and moved to Reno a year ago. I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, and trail running. I have an interest in preventative medicine and substance abuse treatment and have worked in pharmacy as a pharmacy technician in both retail and hospital settings since 2008. I am currently employed at a retail pharmacy.
I am enrolled at the University of Nevada, Reno in the Community Health Sciences (CHS) bachelors of science program. After finishing the CHS program at UNR, I plan on applying to Physician Assistant school.
JTNN interested me because substance abuse is a problem that not only harms the user, but also the people surrounding them. While at JTNN I hope to lean more about community based strategies that address substance abuse related problems as well as smaller scale provider interventions.
