As a Siegel High School health science clinical student, senior Melanie Hall will rotate to various Rutherford County health care providers during her clinical, shifting providers every 3 1/2 weeks.
Hall is currently completing an extended job shadow at Interfaith Dental Clinic in Murfreesboro, where Melanie shadows her mentor, Michelle Tucker, on day to day procedures. Once a week, Hall spends time with Interfaith Development Director, Michelle Russell, learning more about clinic operations. 
When asked what she will take with her from Interfaith, Hall said, "The energy that everyone at the clinic puts into getting to know patients and their families."
