PSU Students Make it to Finals in Obama’s Health Care Video Challenge
Recently, three humble PSU freshmen were assigned to put a video together for their honors English class. The topic: health care reform. And guess what? The trio – comprised of Steve Patrick of New Cumberland, Josie Farinelli of New Kensington, and Ryan Kramer of Maryland – made it to the finals of the Barack Obama Health Reform Video Challenge!
Their thirty-second video took a very rare approach to spreading the word of health care reform by focusing on college students – a demographic not many associate with the problem. “This is the system that we’ll be living with for the rest of our lives, and I think it’s really important that we are active in molding the world that we’re going to live in tomorrow,” Steven Patrick said.
Now they need us, their peers and fellow future-health-care-users to vote for their video as the best before November 6th so they can make it to the top 20 and eventually, hopefully national television. Regardless of your feelings toward Barry O or the Democratic Party, I’m sure you’re a fan of Penn State and wouldn’t mind helping some fellow Nittany Lions out. So vote!
