LANCASTER, PA – Eight nursing students at the Lancaster Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, and a group of volunteers gathered Tuesday, June 15, to sort and pack medical supplies and personal items to take with them on a service-learning trip to Kenya next week. Above, from left, Michael Sandy, director of HACC’s Center for Global Studies, and nursing students Siobhan Downey of Red Lion, Julie Vitz of Dallastown and Megan Nestller of Millersburg take boxes of donated supplies inside. The women leave June 23 for the small town of Kosele, between Nairobi and Lake Victoria, where they will study with HACC nursing professors Dorothy Dulo, a native of Kosele, and Valerie Bugosh, and fulfill clinical requirements by giving vaccinations, teaching nutrition, visiting hospitals and making house calls. Members of the HACC team also going on the three-week trip are nursing students Dawn Oberdick of York, Lisa Wolf of East York, Trisha Warrick of Millersville, Irene Brubaker of Elizabethtown, and Tina Weaver of New Holland.
