As a senior at Summit-Academy North high school, I am required to participate in a job shadow with a professional in the line of work that I am interested in pursuing. On April 13th, I visited Flat Rock Physicians and completed my job shadow experience with one of the doctors that worked there, her name was Dr.Fretz. I was the only student shadowing her that say. While I was there I observed her as she completed her tasks as a family doctor. The reason why I chose to shadow Dr.Fretz is because I plan on going into a career in the medical field and I want to do something that'll give me the chance to help people when they need it and this type of career will give me that opportunity.

On a website the opening page is vital to not only the persons experience on the site, but also the over all impression on the subject. There are several ways that a persons perception can be manipulated to feel a certain way, on a website; the layout, accessibility of information, and images. When accessing the El Paso Zoo website the first thing that catches the attention of the audience is the back ground. Which is the El Paso skyline with the franklin mountains accompanied by some exotic animals. This creates a personal connection with the views by combining something that is familiar and has emotional connection with something new that brings a new excitement to this emotional

If I was granted the opportunity to spend one hour shadowing an ophthalmologist I would prepare by learning the meaning of many composite words and phrases that are used in the medical field. I would familiarize myself with diseases that occur in the eye such as macular degeneration glaucoma amblyopia and strabismus.

To gain insight into their educational career I would research where he/she achieved there undergraduate and medical school degrees. While I am with the ophthalmologist I will take notes on the difference in approach in both children and adult eye care. If this particular ophthalmologist
I am currently a freshman at Roger Williams University who has utilized Student Accessibility Services for both an Attention Deficit Disorder and an Anxiety Disorder. Since a young age, school has always been something that I struggled with and had anxiety about. I was quite worried about the transition into college but found that I was able to transition smoothly with the help of Student Accessibility Services. One thing that I have never been able to do is present in front of my peers, due to my anxiety disorder. With the help of Student Accessibility Services, I was able to communicate this issue with my professors and receive accommodations. In addition to accommodations for my anxiety disorder, I utilized the testing center and received

Fear is a common emotion exhibited by people who stutter (PWS). The fear of negative evaluation is commonly displayed by PWS (Fjola, 1246); when this fear is significantly excessive, the PWS may meet the criteria for a clinical diagnosis of social anxiety (Brundage, Winters, & Beilby, p. 499). Social anxiety frequently causes PWS to isolate themselves from social interactions, and, when in situations, to utilize safety behaviors to prevent stuttering and reduce anxiety. Safety behaviors consequently maintain social anxiety in PWS rather than exacerbate the disorder (Lowe et al., 2017, pp. 1246-1247). More is known regarding the development of social anxiety is adults who stutter (AWS) than the information pertaining to children who stutter (CWS) and their fear of negative evaluation which results in social anxiety (Iverach, Menzies, O’Brian, Packman, & Onslow, 2011, p. 228). The difference in available information may be due to the thought that social anxiety is a short-term effect in CWS but a life-long effect in AWS (Iverach, Jones, McLellan, Lyneham, Menzies, Onslow, & Rapee, 2016, p. 15).
Social anxiety is “a feeling of discomfort, fear, or worry that is centered on our interactions with other people and involves a concern with being judged negatively, evaluated, or looked down upon by others” (Social Anxiety Support, 2014). Social anxiety can affect anyone. Individuals with social anxiety tend to prefer to keep to themselves because they are afraid others will judge them negatively and have a hard time interacting socially.
Social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is a disorder in which a person has an excessive and unreasonable fear of social situations. Social Anxiety causes intense nervousness and self-consciousness arises from a fear of being closely watched, judged, and criticized by others.
