Beautiful Centenarian surrounded by SWCC caring Science Pre-Med Students
During the Eagle Project Day of Service the SWCC Science Pre-Med students in Dr. Susie Mullin's SDV class visited the Commonwealth Senior Living in Cedar Bluff, Virginia for a meet and greet. The students toured the facility and learned about care of the elderly. The students really enjoyed engaging with the seniors. The seniors were interested in the students' home towns, college majors, and asked numerous questions. The students thought it was an awesome experience and they look forward to returning for future activities with the seniors.
