Cresson, Pa. — A Mount Aloysius College nursing student, Ashley Gallo, has been selected to participate in the The Pennsylvania Area Health Education Center (PA AHEC) Scholars Program. The two-year program offers clinical, didactic, and community-based interprofessional learning for the student scholars.

“I believe Ashley’s participation in this program reflects her commitment to the Mount Aloysius core values of mercy, justice, hospitality, and service,” emphasizes Julie Luetschwager, Ph.D., RN, dean of the School of Nursing. “Ashley used her education to seek out an opportunity to gain additional knowledge, skills, and attitudes about serving rural and underserved communities. We are very proud of her.”

Gallo, of Duncansville, Pa., will participate in regional, interprofessional teams and gain knowledge and experience in patient-centered population-focused healthcare. This is a flagship program funded by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration.

The Mount Aloysius Nursing program – one of the best performing and largest in the State – is recognized as a Nursing College of Distinction. Students excel due to small class sizes, outstanding support from faculty committed to helping you succeed, and a multi-million dollar Nursing Simulation Center where practice in a vast variety of clinical scenarios prepares students for clinical experiences.
