Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Description: Orangutans and gorillas in the wild.; In the jungles of Borneo, anthropologist Birute Galdikas-Brindamour and her husband Rod are training orphaned orangutans, raised in captivity, to survive on their own, and studying an orangutan called Nick in his natural habitat. Neither job is easy. The young apes are reluctant to leave the couple, and Nick is reluctant to get close.; In the highlands of Africa's Rwanda, zoologist Diane Fossey has had better luck befriending the shy but unpredictable mountain gorilla. One family is seen at play and foraging for food. Used to Fossey's presence, they allow her to approach and even touch them. But her biggest scientific breakthrough may be in deciphering the gorillas' "language," for she has analyzed as many as 17 different gorilla vocalizations.; Richard Kiley is the narrator.;
