Michelle Kissinger Knows Care Management

Newly-formed Personalized Care Coordination, LLC helping Southern RI.

As a Registered Nurse, Michelle Kissinger, RN, BSN, can be seen on the front lines of care management. She gains a rapport with her clients by investing her time to listen to their concerns, needs and goals.

“The most important aspect of my plan of care is to assure my client’s safety and well-being, and just as importantly, their quality of life,” she said. “Every client’s situation is different, which makes each plan specific to them.”

Michelle recently opened Personalized Care Coordination, LLC in Carolina, (it is part of Charlestown), to provide care for older adults so their families can have peace of mind that “anextra set of eyes looks in on their loved ones.” Michelle said she understands the challenges for families caring for their family members and the stress that may cause, especially if they do not live nearby.

Joseph Schechtman: Helping Students Graduate College in Four Years and Prepare for Careers in Today’s World of Artificial Intelligence

The most difficult transition in life is from high school to college. High school seniors are stressed about grades, homework, peer relationships, family struggles, going to the “right” college, leaving their friends and family members, and, in many ways, starting life over again. Despite these challenges, most high school seniors expect to graduate college in four years.

According to the National Student Clearinghouse Center, 58% of students who began college in the fall of 2012 graduated six years later in the spring of 2018. Asian students (76.7%) and White students (72.1%) continue to graduate at much higher rates than Hispanic (57.4%) and Black (47.6%) students. David Jenkins of the Community College Research Center at Columbia University found that 40% of students who start college never finish.
