Exercise science major Francesa Picicci

Francesca Picicci is an exercise science major from North Massapequa, New York.

Please describe your job with ConveinentMD.
I am a COVID-19 tester for UNH students, as well as faculty and staff.

Why did you apply for the job?
I was excited to give back to the university and the Durham community and gain a new experience working in the health care field.

What is the most important or interesting thing you've learned so far?
That people are willing to sacrifice their time and their comfort to protect the university against COVID-19.

What does it mean to you to be on the front lines doing essential work to help manage the spread of COVID-19?
It is an honor to be a part of something that seems small, but will have a huge impact on the safety of our community.

How has this experience been valuable for you?
I have met new people and gained valuable patient care experience working in the field.

Is there anything about being tested and/or UNH's testing program that you'd like the UNH community or others to know?
We are working hard and giving our time as much as we can to make sure the members of our community remain negative.
