October is Health Careers Awareness Month in Vermont

We love to brag about our former program students. During Health Careers Awareness Month in Vermont, we are pleased to highlight another Southern Vermont AHEC success story.

Alexy Novelli, a native of Bennington, Vermont was a former intern in our CSHIP Program, an AHEC Scholar during her time at The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont and also was an undergraduate at the University of Vermont. Alexy continues to do great things. Currently, she is continuing her medical training in Internal Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine.

Alexy had these things to say about how Southern Vermont AHEC shaped her decision to pursue a career in medicine.

“It was through Southern Vermont AHEC that I found my first shadowing and internship experiences, shaping my interest in medicine. During medical school, AHEC opportunities helped me realize my passion for the care of rural populations. I am now continuing my training in Internal Medicine at Duke, and I believe AHEC is a vital resource for any young Vermonter interested in healthcare.”
