Camilla Prata

Camilla Prata, a senior at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, will study pre-med in college. Camilla attended the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School from kindergarten through 10th grade and moved to the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School as a junior, where she played varsity tennis on the 2016 state championship team. Camilla has been a volunteer at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital and hopes to work there this summer as an intern to Dr. Karen Casper. Her plan is to shadow Dr. Casper, assist hospital staff and also will perform data collection and analysis regarding the use of naloxone by Island first responders (the police, EMS and fire personnel) to reverse opiate overdose. The information will help estimate the Island’s needs surrounding opiate overdose, opiate use disorders, bystander naloxone use, and efficacy of first responder administration.
