WBRE’s Cody Butler made a visit to Penn College students who are lending their skills at the Little League Baseball World Series. Forty-four students from the college’s physician assistant, paramedic and emergency medical services majors are stationed at the South Williamsport complex throughout the Series, which ends Aug. 28. Paramedic students, enrolled in the Intermediate Clinical Practicum course, are stationed in the stadiums to help meet emergency needs of spectators at the games. Physician assistant students are helping to staff the infirmary inside International Grove, where the teams reside during the Series. Both are under the direction of staff from Susquehanna Health and Susquehanna Regional Emergency Medical Services. Butler’s report – which featured emergency medical services major Molly J. Durland, of Dushore, and physician assistant student Macie N. Lucas, of Reedsville – aired during Tuesday evening newscasts.
