Senior nursing students participate in Children's Health Fair at MGH

April 27, eight seniors in the UMass Dartmouth nursing program volunteered at the award-winning Children's Health Fair at Massachusetts General Hospital April 27.

On Friday, April 27, eight seniors in the UMass Dartmouth nursing program volunteered at the award-winning Children's Health Fair at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), providing parents and children with educational materials on child development, safety, and common health concerns. The UMass Dartmouth College of Nursing was the only college or university program represented at the fair. More than 2500 people attended.

The eight students are currently in their mentorship experience, a culminating internship in their program of studies. Four of the students, Catherine Janie, Meaghan Farry, Jennifer Briscoe, and Nicolas Lavoie, have placements at MGH for their internship. They were joined at the fair by classmates Erika Rebello, Caitlin Gaudette, Ashley Dutra, and Jessica Osuch.

Dr Kerry Fater, Associate Professor of Adult and Child Nursing, said, "The students were eager to participate in this wonderful service learning opportunity. We are proud of these students who shared their creativity, contribution, and willingness to serve the community, in this educational event."
