Remote Area Medical Mission: March 26th Reception Set For Nursing Faculty-Student Trip To Ohio

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.
