COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD RECIPIENTS:
April 2012 Undergraduate Student recipient: Morgan Schmoll
For the month of March, Morgan volunteered once a week for the B.E.S.T program as a mentor for youth by providing an underprivileged elementary/middle school, Mount Calvary Academy, with an afterschool program. During the afterschool program, students are provided the opportunity to play a game that encourages them to learn something new about science. Morgan also helped students with homework that they may not get a chance to have help with completing at home.
April 2012 Graduate Student recipient: Dorisela Torres
Dorisela, a Family Nurse Practitioner student, traveled to Panama during Spring Break for the second year in a row with the International Health Service Collaborative (IHSC) from the College of Public Health. She was the only graduate nursing student representing the College of Nursing that worked in collaboration with COPH and medical students. They were able to impact the rural town by providing free health clinics, prescribing free medications, and building 10 latrines for the community. Dorisela also volunteered at the Community Health Fair at San Jose Mission in Dover where she obtained health histories, vital signs, and provided education to non-English speaking patients. On Mondays for four hours, Dorisela also volunteered at the health clinic at San Jose Mission in Dover where she assisted in providing gynecological care and primary medical care to non-English speaking patients.
