Student Spotlight: Alysa Wigal

Alysa Wigal

Program: MSSA, Full-Time – Health
Hometown: Painesville, OH
Why social work? “I have past experience working with children inpatient in hospitals and I’m interested in being the advocate of children and families in hospitals – I want to advocate for children with chronic illness. This year, I’ll be at the Center for Dialysis Care for my field placement.”
Favorite thing about Cleveland? “I love the sense of community… and the Indians!”
Fun Fact: “I volunteered at Give Kids the World in Orlando, Florida, which is an amusement park for kids with long-term illnesses. Families stay for free at the park. It’s the first park with a wheelchair accessible merry-go-round!”
