Susan's Story

For the past 4 years Susan has been fulfilling the role of a Clinical Research Coordinator at Tri-County Research Inc., a research division of Tri-County Medical Clinic. Susan is in charge of setting up and administration of clinical studies in various health conditions in a family practice setting  and loves being involved in clinical research.

Susan wanted to be a nurse since she was a little girl; her fascination and hunger for science fueled her desire to become a nurse. Just recently, Susan traveled on a very special medical mission to Kenya; the trip was a life-changing experience. Despite the despair and poverty among the people of Kenya, Susan saw hope and appreciation for the care that was provided to them; a highly rewarding experience for a nurse. Susan plans on continuing to serve the underprivileged and despaired through many more medical missions.
