SON Health Center’s call for programs

Open to faculty and students at UNCG, up to $1,000 per program will be awarded. Three programs may be selected for year 2012.

For more than 25 years, the UNCG School of Nursing Health Centers have partnered with the Greensboro Housing Authority (GHA) to provide free weekly wellness clinics to residents located within their elderly or near-elderly housing locations (residents age 55 years and older). Nursing students provide residents with basic health screenings along with providing them with educational resources and connect them with community resources. With recent funding from Wellspring Retirement Community, more money may be offered to expand health programing among the GHA residents. For more information about the Health Centers visit http://nursing.uncg.edu/community/

Nursing invites faculty-led or student-led health programs to submit ideas for programs. (If a program is student-led, a faculty sponsor is required.) Examples of programs might be as follows:

  • Home safety
  • Literacy education
  • Hearing screenings
  • Physical activity
  • Mental health
  • Disease management
  • Conflict resolution

Programs must be completed by May 31, 2012.
