Beautiful Centenarian surrounded by SWCC caring Science Pre-Med Students

Beautiful Centenarian surrounded by SWCC caring Science Pre-Med StudentsDuring 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.

For more information on the Science Pre-Medical specialization contact Professor Householder via georgia.householder@sw.edu. SWCC has many articulation agreements with professional schools for pharmacy, optometry, and physician assistant. The agreements allow SWCC students to enter the professional schools without attending a four-year college (Great Education! Low Cost!) .
