Volunteering as a Student Nurse: Part 2
Every semester, nursing students are placed within many different types of organizations, and fortunately I was recently placed at Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Since arriving at Muscular Dystrophy Canada this past January, I have had the opportunity to explore the numerous programs and services that the organization offers to its many clients. As a potential community health nurse, I have come to realize that so many different aspects of a person’s life can affect their health.
In the past few weeks I have been contacting clients regarding the Information and Education Conference in Windsor, Ontario that is to be held on April 21, 2012. This conference is a great opportunity for clients and family members to explore and learn about nutrition, exercise, and share experiences that can affect the overall health and daily living of people living with neuromuscular disorders. If you are interested in attending this conference you can email Karen.Dunbar@muscle.ca.
This is one of the many conferences that Muscular Dystrophy Canada offers throughout the year; Muscular Dystrophy Canada offers countless services in areas of information, education, and support, among other services, that I have found to make a difference in the lives of people living with neuromuscular disorders throughout the nation.
