Salem Nursing Students Volunteer at Free Clinic
Earlier this semester, a team of nursing students and faculty members volunteered to work at the Rural Area Mobile (RAM) free clinic held at the Covelli Center in Youngstown.
The team spent a day working in triage, taking vital signs and collecting health history information from individuals preparing for a medical/dental or a medical/vision visit.
The clinic was staffed by area medical professionals who provided free care to all who sought treatment. It is estimated that more than 700 patients were seen that day, receiving nearly $300,000 in free services.
Representing Kent State Salem’s BSN program were Dr. May Lou Ferranto and Sarah Pierce Brown, along with nursing students Sydney McGrath, Ayla Mroczkowski, Taylor Oliver and Wendy Vargo.
RAM is a major nonprofit provider of mobile clinics that provide free, quality healthcare to those in need.
