Villa Maria students presented at the annual Annenberg Symposium, held this year at Upper Darby High School. Moderator Dr. Jennifer Horan reported, “Villa Maria presented an informative and creative presentation about phantom limb pain, specifically following an eye amputation. Through the spring, our students researched thoroughly learning about the history, etiology, symptoms and treatment for phantom limb pain following amputations.”

Dr. Horan said judges Dr. Barry Mann and Dr. Pat Ross both reflected on the poise, research and presentation by Villa Maria Academy.
