Receiving this stethoscope truly signifies the beginning of my journey as a P-A. I hope to use this stethoscope to not only listen to the heart of my patients but also to touch their life in a meaningful way. Your donation will lend itself to potentially change the lives of all my patients. Thank you." In June, Liana Jawad received her first stethoscope thanks to a gift from alumnus Gary Gossman. Her thank you note to Gossman, shown at right, shared the impact this gift has had on her.
