We love getting to know some of our students, and we love highlighting them through our Student Stories!


Meet Allison Tremblay, a Nursing major from the class of 2015, who is also part of the Simmons College Tobacco Free Committee. We had the chance to ask Allison a few questions about Tobacco Free Simmons and what she's excited for this school year!
What did you do this summer?
I spent the summer working at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston as a Patient Care Assistant in the Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Unit. I learned a lot and loved it! I spent my days off exercising and relaxing by the pool.
How did you get involved with the Tobacco Free Committee?
I became involved with the Tobacco Free Simmons Committee in Fall 2013 when Dean Judy Beal came into my nursing class asking for SNHS students to become student leaders and help her make Simmons become tobacco free. I emailed her after class that day and have been working closely with her ever since. I attended a statewide "Become Tobacco Free!" symposium at UMass Medical Center with Dean Beal in October, where we learned the steps to become a tobacco free campus. With the information gathered from this conference and the help of many members of the Simmons community, we were able to make Tobacco Free Simmons a reality.

teresafung.jpg"Soda consumption remains high in the United States, and hip fractures in the elderly can impact quality of life in a major way, therefore, prevention is important. This study suggests soda may be a risk factor for hip fractures." - Teresa Fung

Simmons own Professor Teresa Fung recently published one of the first studies on soda consumption and the increased risk of hip fractures in postmenopausal women.

We are so proud of Professor Fung, and grateful that she took the time to answer some questions about her exciting research!

Read President Helen Drinan's latest Huffington Post Blog: Mo'ne Davis -- Four Success Tips For Girls From a Young Baseball Ace.

What can I say about Mo'ne Davis, but wow! This 13-year-old girl has the entire country talking, as her pitching skills have helped to lead her Philadelphia Little League team to the Little League World Series. This month, she led her team to a 4-0 victory over Nashville becoming the first girl pitcher in Little League World Series history to earn a win through a two-hit shut out. Now, this young phenom is gracing the cover of the world's most well known sports magazine -- Sports Illustrated. It's the first time that any Little Leaguer -- boy or girl -- has been featured on the cover. Mo'ne is one of only 18 girls (out of nearly 9,000 total players) to have played in the Little League World Series since it began in 1947.

Mo'ne has accomplished so very much at the young age 13. So what can we learn from her steadfast competition and humble nature? A lot. Here is a list of four things that I believe girls can learn about leadership and success from this inspiring athlete. Read more.
