Meet Wanda Harrison, a Saint James School of Medicine alumna who has dedicated her medical education to the welfare of the elderly community. Harrison started at Saint James in January 2007 and finished her Basic Sciences in April 2008. After several years of rotations around the country, she received her medical degree in January 2013.
She soon put her knowledge to good use. When she saw a recruitment poster for the Florida Ombudsman Program, she immediately jumped in. As an ombudsman, Harrison’s main responsibility is to gauge the welfare of seniors at or near the end stages of life. She investigates and assesses the quality of long-term care facilities.
Harrison is adored in her position. She is known for going above and beyond to solve any problem that comes her way. “She is tireless,” Harrison’s district manager, Terre Anne Lindstamer, said. “She is totally committed to helping the residents, and she doesn’t like to give up.”

Community outreach events at Saint James School of Medicine, like the annual Health Fair, helped Harrison gain the experience she needed to be successful volunteering in her community. As an alumni of Saint James, she now has the tools she needs to continue on the path to success. Harrison’s story of success proves the value of a medical education with Saint James.
