Seven SIUE School of Nursing students offered triage services to those in need during a Remote Area Medical (RAM) community health clinic held May 2-4 at the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center in East St. Louis.
"It is important that we prepare our nursing students to care for patients from underserved populations as more and more American citizens are gaining access to health care under the Affordable Care Act," said Caitlin Phelan, instructor of nursing. "This RAM event is an annual opportunity for SIUE students and faculty to serve their neighboring community."
