Little League volunteers spotlightedHealth Sciences students who volunteered throughout the Little League Baseball World Series were featured in a WBRE news report that aired Wednesday on the local NBC affiliate. Jeremy Deebel interviewed physician assistant students Katherine P. Ordonez-Fall, of Williamsport, and Sylvia A. Graczyk, of Allentown, who were among the 60 Penn College students from the emergency medical services and PA majors who helped area medical staff at the international event in South Williamsport. “I personally speak Spanish,” said Ordonez-Fall, pictured at left. “I just had a patient who spoke Spanish. He didn’t know any English, so that was very rewarding for me to be able to use my skills to help him.”
