Meet MOA Scholarship Recipient Lucy Algeo, OMS-I!

Name: Lucy Algeo
Hometown: Raymond, Maine (now resides in Portland, ME)
Current Osteopathic Medical School: University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine

About Lucy: Student Doctor Algeo was born and raised in Maine. She graduated from Windham High School in 2012 and attended the University of Maine as an undergraduate. Her experience with Medical Outreach Maine, a volunteer program at University of Maine, allowed her to tour Waldo County’s healthcare facilities, one of the poorest counties in Maine. Here she learned the importance of preventative care in rural communities. 

Lucy also volunteered with MMC’s Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) and has come to understand the hurdles Maine’s aging population faces. She says that the most meaningful activities during her volunteer work have involved initiating conversations with patients. She learned that simply asking “How long have you lived in Maine,” lifted the spirits of patients and eased their minds of the stresses of hospital settings. Lucy also noted in her role as a medical scribe for a Family Medicine Practice in South Portland, that primary care relies on more than just efficient diagnosis and treatment. Family physicians take the time to get to know their patient’s history, lifestyles, and family dynamics to better treat their physical and mental ailments.

She states that “Osteopathic medicine, with its emphasis on preventative care and holistic diagnosis and treatment, is the model upon which I want to build my career.”

The MOA was pleased to offer a 2018 scholarship to Lucy Algeo, OMS I and wishes her luck in her studies at UNE COM!
