MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

CALVIN UNIVERSITY NURSING

Calvin University’s well know nursing program brings powerful technical expertise and community connections to the NEWC. The instructors and students work to promote human health and dignity in every space. The nursing program conducts an in depth research study of the health status and needs of Creston residents every 7 years. This information informs NEWC and helps guide its work. We are grateful to professor Gail Zandee who passionately supports mental health efforts in the neighborhood. We welcome new instructor Sara Post, new this year, who has jumped right into NEWC’s promotion of active living. These Calvin instructors generously share their knowledge and energy which foster NEWC’s progress in serving residents’ well being.
