Wake graduate profiled in PA Professional

Kevin Lacz, a Class of 2014 graduate of the Wake Forest PA Program, is the subject of the cover article in the December 2014 issue of PA Professional. “American Sniper: How a Former Navy Seal Juggled PA School, Family and a Movie Career” describes his role as a technical advisor on the current hit movie American Sniper, where he worked to make sure the movie is accurate in its depiction of the Seals. Lacz was a friend of Navy Seal Chris Kyle, the lead character in the film, and also ended up playing himself in the movie. Lacz took a leave of absence during his clinical year to spend time on the set of American Sniper and finished his rotations after completing work on the movie. Since graduating, he has been helping to publicize the film. In January he started work at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Florida, where he will focus on rehabilitation for injured Special Forces soldiers who fought in the Afghan and Iraq wars.
