Hi! My name is Maddie Schlapia, I’m a Human Health Science major on the Pre-Physician Assistant Track with a minor in Psychology. I’m from Madison, Wisconsin and I’m a rising Junior here at UK. I’m involved in many other amazing organizations here on campus. I’m a part of College Mentors for Kids, where I volunteer as a mentor to a child from a local elementary school here in Lexington. I’m also a member of the Chi Omega sorority and serve as the Health and Wellness Chair. Finally, I am Secretary of the Pre-Physician Assistant Club. I also spend a lot of time shadowing at UK HealthCare to gain experience for my future career as a PA, but in my free time I love to draw and paint, and of course cheer on the Cats! I’m so excited for the opportunity to be an Ambassador to the College of Health Sciences, the college has opened so many doors for me and has educated me on important topics in healthcare, such as cultural competence, ethics, research, health policy, and more! I’m most looking forward to meeting prospective students and sharing with them all the amazing aspects of our college.
