Monday Mission, 5/2/2011
As the storms rushed across Alabama last Wednesday, Allison Studdard, a student in the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing, worked throughout the day with her preceptor in the Emergency Department of Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham. She saw firsthand the trauma of those who arrived at the hospital, and she was also touched by the physical and emotional strain on the medical staff. Allison wasn't scheduled to go back to the hospital on Thursday, but she sought our Mrs. Barbara Money, her faculty member for her preceptorship, to ask if she might return to Princeton the next day, if only to answer the telephone for the charge nurse.
The world is better because Samford people give, and give, and give.
