Health Administration Undergraduate: Sidrah Farooq

This past spring Sidrah worked with PWNHealth, a national clinician network that provides safe and easy access to diagnostic testing. PWN partnered with Verily Project Baseline, Quest Diagnostics, and other labs that are testing for COVID-19.

What Sidrah says:

As part of my job I made outreach calls to patients who tested positive. I disclosed their results and discussed their symptoms and based on that, helped them determine whether they should seek immediate medical attention or if they should just self isolate. I also helped with follow up and helped set up consultations.

One of the most rewarding parts of the job is the ability to affect change and do something positive and meaningful through my work.

Her job:

I’m currently working as a patient care coordinator and want to pursue a MBA to further grow in my career as a healthcare professional.  PWNHealth is a national clinician network that provides safe and easy access to diagnostic testing

Why health administration?

I chose Health Administration because I want to make a difference in other peoples’ lives. With my degree, I can help improve the lives of hundreds or thousands of people every time I go to work. It is one of the most rewarding parts of the job – the ability to affect change and do something positive and meaningful through my work.
