Earlier this month, 112 Health Professions students served the community at 10 different locations throughout Columbia for the seventh annual School of Health Professions Service Days event.
Students played board games and socialized with the residents of the Bluffs, a non-profit skilled health care provider; bagged more than 2,000 pounds of dry ingredients for the Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri; packed hygiene kits for Afghan refugees at the Assistance League; and much more.
The event was organized by graduate students and former student ambassadors Matt Vollmar, Lexie Chirpich, Mady Flatt, Carolyn Russell and Mackenzie Krebill, and Health Professions student ambassadors served as site leaders at each volunteer location.
“These students gave of themselves and their very precious time — Health Professions students are busy — to help others they would mostly never meet, and that says so much about them,” said Cheri Ghan, coordinator of student recruitment.
Thank you to the student ambassador site leaders and all the Health Professions students who gave their time to make a difference!
