Dr. Steven Hill Provides Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Course Free of Charge to Centralia and Aberdeen Students


This past November, Dr. Steven Hill, Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences’ Adjunct Clinical Faculty (ACF) member in South Bend, Washington, generously provided a full Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course, including certificate cost, free of charge to all Centralia and Aberdeen students that wished to attend.

Dr. Hill, a lifelong resident of Pacific County, is Board Certified in Family Practice, caring for patients of all ages, including a large number of pediatric patients throughout his community. An active member of the community in which he serves, Dr. Hill encompasses many of the values that PNWU cherishes so deeply, including service to his community and a deep and genuine compassion for those he serves. Regularly, Dr. Hill will be met by the smile of one of his young patients at the many community events he frequents as they approach to say hello or simply exclaim “he’s my doctor!”

Dr. Hill’s generosity extends beyond his kind contribution to the students of PNWU, as he also sponsors many events and activities throughout the South Bend-area, including boy’s T-Ball, girl’s softball, youth soccer programs and various community events, including the Raymond Theater, the Raymond Fire Department’s community education program, the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and many more.

With his generous contribution, medical students from Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences are awarded the invaluable opportunity to learn and reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics. In their time within the PALS course, PNWU students will gain the tools required to further achieve their goal of providing quality medical care to rural and underserved communities throughout the Northwest.
