One might contend that University of Southern Mississippi (USM) nurse anesthesia Professor Stephanie Parks breathes a whole lot easier knowing her colleague, Dr. Anna Wan, is part of the USM team.
Parks, Assistant Professor in USM’s Nurse Anesthesia Program, collaborated with Mathematics Professor Wan to create a 3D printed trachea now being used as part of Parks’ medical training thousands of miles away in Syria. In addition to her academic duties, Parks serves as a major in the United States Army Reserves.
