Steve took a leadership role in a pilot program for the UCI BSN students to teach human health and development in the community. Their specific need was to have a participating nurse partner with the UCI BSN students to facilitate conversations with young middle school-age boys about their emotional health, health relationships, safety, puberty and development. His caring attitude toward the young middle school boys was evident, demonstrating outstanding communication skills.
