  • Patrick Adams

    Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology • Class of 2007

    Patrick Adams found himself in the news when he was asked to be part of the team performing radiation therapy on Mike VI, the tiger mascot for Louisiana State University, who at the time was battling spindle-cell sarcoma.

    Adams, who specializes in PET scanning at Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center, prepares patients for their radiology treatment. Mike the Tiger received his treatment on one of the newest types of machines at the hospital, the Elekta Versa radiotherapy system. As Adams explained, “It is [much] faster, so it works better for animals that can’t stay long under anesthesia.”

  • Daniel Flynn

    Bachelor of Science in Nursing • Class of 2014

    Daniel Flynn is a paramedic who attended the University’s Accelerated Nursing Program while still working in New Orleans as an emergency medical technician (EMT). After graduation, he continued his work as a paramedic and began working as a registered nurse as well.

    Flynn was approached to become one of the main paramedics on the show Nightwatch, an unscripted A&E true-crime series that embeds with New Orleans first responders. In his cast notes, Flynn explains why he loves his work: “I love being the guy people look to for help…An older paramedic who trained me early in my career told me the famous quote, ‘To the world, you are just one person, but to one person, you could be the world.’ This is [the] impact paramedics can have on a person’s life.”
