Congratulations to PSB post-bacc student Lina Lee, who was recently offered a full-time, paid position as a Rehabilitation Technician at the RiverRidge Center for Brain Injury and Stroke Rehabilitation in Maine!  Lina has also been invited on an interview for a (full-time, paid) Clinical Research Coordinator position at the UCI Medical Center - she will see how things shake out with the UCI interview before deciding for sure about the RiverRidge position.

We will soon be accepting applications for Fall 2018!
