This past year, Rochelle Lee, Ed.D., assistant professor in the Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences, challenged her colleagues to support the period pantry and food pantry on Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus. The response received by Lee’s call was overwhelming with over 22,261 individual pieces of feminine hygiene products donated in addition to 36 tubes of toothpaste, 73 bars of soap, 66 sticks of deodorant and a host of food items this calendar year. Lee plans to carry the momentum into 2022 and continue accepting donations on behalf of the period pantry and food pantry. Those interested in making a donation can find donation boxes in the main office of the Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences.
Many of the clinical programs offered by the Waters College of Health Professions require a clinical internship or practicum experience to fulfill degree requirements. Pursuant to the University's legal agreements, participants in clinical experiences are required to abide by the workplace rules of the clinical site. The University is aware of recent federal requirements that would mandate vaccination against COVID-19 for those working in certain settings, including health care. At this time, we expect that these new requirements may significantly impact our ability to locate a placement for students who remain unvaccinated. As always, WCHP will continue to make every effort to place students at clinical sites. However, please be aware that we may be unable to locate a site to accept unvaccinated students, which may cause a delay or inability to progress and complete the program of study.
