Franklin Pierce University faculty members Priscilla Marsicovetere, JD, PA-C and Katrina J. Deshaney, MHS, PA-C, and former student Monique Raymond, MPAS ’21 were recently published in the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (JAAPA) for their research on acute abdominal pain in children. The article, “Diagnosing and managing acute abdominal pain in children,” was featured in the January 2022 issue. The article describes the presentation, physical examination, diagnosis, and treatment of common causes of acute abdominal pain in children and discusses emerging trends in diagnosis and treatment.
JAAPA is the peer-reviewed clinical journal of the American Academy of PAs (AAPA). Published for more than 25 years, its mission is to support the ongoing education and advancement of physician associates/physician assistants (PAs) by publishing current information and research on clinical, health policy, and professional issues.
At the time the article was submitted, Monique Raymond was a student in Franklin Pierce’s Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) program at Academic Center in Lebanon, N.H. She currently practices pain management at the Orthopedic Center of Florida in Ft. Myers, FL.
Priscilla Marsicovetere, since working on the research, has been named FPU’s Dean of the College of Health and Natural Sciences. She notes, “Having a student published in a medical journal is a noteworthy accomplishment. This speaks to the quality of our academic programs and the caliber of our faculty members in preparing our students to succeed academically and prepare for rewarding careers.”
