Narragansett Elders Speak on their Careers in Healthcare 

sriAHEC videotaped three Narragansett seniors, now in their 70s and 80s, who spent their professional careers in health care. Begun in 2011, editing resumed in 2013, following refunding of sriAHEC. The elders offer advice to young people inspiring them to pursue health professions studies as undergraduates at URI.  They also speak about their upbringing in traditional society, modern vs. traditional medicine, and highlights of their own careers.  See our Resources Page for health studies career options in such fields as Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Studies, and Kinesiology (Exercise Science).
