Medical Students Provide Screenings during Northern Kentucky Stand Down

Nov 10, 2014

Students from the surgical technology and medical assisting programs at the Florence Campus recently volunteered to provide medical screenings during the Northern Kentucky Stand Down, an event that provides services and resources to homeless veterans.  Students from the campus have participated in the event for several years.

Surgical technology program director Carolyn Nienaber, director of health care education Kathreen Buckner, and instructors Karrie Perkins and Alice Spencer supervised the students during the event.  According to Carolyn, the group performed almost 90 screenings.  The VA Medical Center’s mobile unit also provided flu shots, and other health services.

“Many of our students are veterans, so they loved the opportunity to give back,” said Carolyn.  “The event also provided the students with a wonderful opportunity to practice their skills in preparation for their upcoming careers in the medical field.”
