Kevin Riutzel isn’t majoring in history. He is making it. An osteopathic medical student at Touro University Nevada (TUN), Riutzel is the national president of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), the first time in the group’s 19 year history that its leader is an osteopathic medical student. And he has just been re-elected to a second term. But Riutzel hasn’t got time for celebratory toasts.
On Sunday, May 17 the university graduated 280 medical and educational professionals at its Spring Commencement ceremony. Touro graduates included physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, and osteopathic physicians.
Touro University California graciously welcomed Shelley Berkley, the new CEO and Senior Provost of Touro’s Western Division, to the campus on January 13th, where faculty, staff, students, and community members had an opportunity to meet the former Nevada Congresswoman.
