Lydia graduated August 2009 and passed her National Certification Boards December 2009. She entered the health care workforce as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Since May 2010, Lydia has been employed at the Fort Morgan Pediatric Clinic in Fort Morgan, Colorado. She works three days in Fort Morgan and two (sometimes three) days at the Giftz Clinic. The Giftz Clinic is a clinic that Lydia started. She volunteers her time to provide medical services for the uninsured, underserved, and sometimes patients who are insured with questions and concerns. She continues to move forward to expand the clinic and hopes other medical, nursing, pharmacy, and any other health related personnel to offer their knowledge, and volunteer at the Giftz Clinic. Lydia and the clinic were featured in the Colorado AHEC Program August / September 2010 Health Matters newsletter. Lydia also continues to volunteer for Centennial AHEC during the 9Health Fair screenings.
