The weather was beautiful on Friday, October 4th for Mustangs Make a Difference Day! The day includes all of the First-Year Seminar classes, as well as some clubs and organizations. This campus-wide day of service for students, faculty and staff is designed to make a positive difference while furthering commitment to one of the university’s core values, that of promoting a sense of community.
Students in the Medical Laboratory Science Program created "goody bags" for parents of babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Sinai Hospital. Inside the bags, students were able to place toiletries, note pads, game books and notes of encouragement for parents. The bags will be delivered to the NICU nurses for distribution to the parents in the near future.
Medical laboratory professionals are an integral part of the healthcare team, providing the valuable laboratory data that drives over 70% of medical decision making, even for the smallest patients.
