Post Rock Welcomes Megha Ananth

October 14, 2018 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

Megha is attending Kansas University School of Medicine Wichita and is in her 4th year doing her Rural Family Medicine Rotation.  Megha is shadowing Dr. Lynn Fisher.

Where are you from?
I grew up in Leawood, Kansas. I went to high school at Blue Valley North and then attended Saint Louis University for undergrad. I majored in Spanish, Public Health, and International Studies at SLU. After undergrad I went to Tulane University and took some masters courses in Public Health before attending KU for medical school.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I chose to come to Plainville for my rural Family Medicine rotation because I loved the diversity among the family docs working at the hospital. I hoped that by coming to Plainville I would have opportunities to see patients of all ages and help perform procedures such as joint injections, colonoscopies, and hopefully deliver some babies!

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
I want to do Family Medicine! I love the idea of building strong, trusting relationships with my own patients. Patients often put all of their trust into their family doctor and I believe that with a strong relationship, you can help patients better their health and lifestyle as a FM doctor.

Post Rock Welcomes Rebecca Duke

September 18, 2018 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

Rebecca is attending KU School of Social Welfare North Western Campus.  She is part of the class of 2020 and is completing her Practicum in Social Work.  Rebecca is shadowing Christy Kaufman.

Where are you from?
I was originally born in Mexico City and attended high school in England. After that I came to the USA for university studies and married a man who became an officer in the Army. Due to my husbands career I lived all over: Germany, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kansas. When I was divorced I went to Hays to be close to my mother.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I still live in Hays, but chose to do my practicum at Post Rock because of the tremendous reputation it has. I also wanted some experience in Patient Care Management because I am in a clinical program and will mostly be exposed to therapy and mental health care in my practicum next year. I think that the experience at Post Rock will make me a more well rounded Social Worker. I also really enjoyed meeting Ms. Kaufman during my interview, she gave me some very comprehensive information about what Post Rock is about and she and the rest of the staff at post rock were very friendly and welcoming to me

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
Originally I thought that all I wanted to do was become a therapist. However, now that I am doing my practicum at Post Rock and concentrating on Chronic Care Management, it has peaked my interest and I may want to pursue this line of work in the future, as well as doing therapy. I enjoy helping people, and helping clients or patients to manage their illnesses, be they physical or mental would be very gratifying to me.

Post Rock Welcomes Amanda Lowe

August 31, 2018 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

Amanda is attending the University of Kansas –  Kansas City Campus.  She is in her 4th year and is completing her rural rotation in Family Medicine.  Amanda is shadowing Dr. Beth Oller.

Where are you from?
I grew up in Leawood, Kansas with my parents and one older sister.  After graduating from Blue Valley North High school, I attended the University of Arkansas to study biochemistry.  I then returned to KU School of Medicine for medical school, although I will not admit any loyalties to the Jayhawks as my mother is a Wildcat.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I chose Plainville for this rotation because these doctors have a great reputation at KU in providing an amazing experience for medical students.  I also wanted to see the differences in family practice in a rural setting versus an academic center like KU.

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
I plan to go into family medicine!  I have always wanted continuity with patients, and I have an uncle who is a family physician that was a great role model for me growing up.  I want to be able to treat anyone and everyone, and I prefer to follow my patients throughout their lives and get to know them on a personal level and not just treat their medical issues.
