Nursing Graduate Student On COVID Front Lines
Registered nurse Shaileni Lal, a Master of Science in Nursing candidate at Stanislaus State, spends 12-hour shifts caring for COVID-19 patients in the intensive care unit at Modesto’s Memorial Medical Center. When she leaves, she hands her duties off to her husband, Vishnu, who works the opposite 12-hour shift in the same unit of the same hospital.
Geology Lecturer Discovers Three New Walrus Species
“Who’s somebody you’ve met that says, ‘I’m somebody who studied walruses? It sounds like a great ice breaker.” The potential ice breaker turned into ground-breaking research for Lecturer and Stan State Alum Jacob Biewer, who helped uncover three new species of walruses by studying skull fossils at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. He’s the lead writer of a paper published last fall on the discovery in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
