Hayes DuJardin – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – On Sept. 30, 2019, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital’s Dr. George Jallo visited LRHS Advanced Placement (AP) psychology classes, conducting a question and answer session with students.
According to Johns Hopkins, Jallo is, “The vice dean and physician-in-chief at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. He is also medical director of the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Institute for Brain Protection Sciences.”
AP psychology was learning about the structure and function of the brain, and who better to help them learn more than someone whose job it is to operate on human brains?
Jallo answered questions about going to college, how tedious and demanding his position can be, and traveling the world for operations, among other topics.
Jallo feels that speaking with students is very important.
“At the Institute for Brain Protection Sciences at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, our team feels it is very important to be contributors and educators on all aspects of pediatric medicine,” he said. “We recognize the value in educating and mentoring youth; especially in the neurosciences field which is constantly progressing with new and exciting science. We are happy to commit time to sharing our knowledge and experience with others who are interested in learning.”
LRHS AP Psychology teacher Heather Selens was ecstatic Jallo returned for the second year in the row, and hopes he can continue to come in and speak with students in her class.
