Members of Capital Community College’s Nursing faculty and their students are organizing an outreach trip with a mission of helping others in need in a medically under-served community in the U.S.
The educational and humanitarian trip will involve faculty and students delivering services and care at a Remote Area Medical (RAM) free mobile clinic in Columbus, Ohio June 13-14. A contingent of faculty and students went to Wise, Virginia in 2019 with partial support from the Capital Community College Foundation.
A benefit reception will be held Thursday, March 26th from 5 to 8 p.m. at City Steam Brewery, 942 Main Street, Hartford, adjacent to Capital’s campus. Reservations and tickets are $25 (friend) and $50 (Supporter) with Patron and Benefactor sponsorship opportunities available. Proceeds will defray the costs of transportation, lodging and supplies for nursing students for the 2020 trip.
Remote Area Medical free clinics provide nursing majors with a valuable clinical experience and the opportunity to understand health disparities related to poverty in the U.S.
The mission of Remote Area Medical (RAM), according to the national volunteer organization, is “to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free quality healthcare to those in need.”
