Let’s focus on community!

We just started our community health rotation today and so far so good. I am looking forward to this rotation since we will be working in the West Philadelphia community. We will be working with a program that is similar to the PACE program. PACE stands for Programs for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. They provide a numerous amount of services to the elder( ie Physical therapy, occupational therapy, dental and medical services to name a few) in order to increase their quality of life. The unique aspect of the program we are working with is that it is the only one that is run by a nursing school and is operated primarily by nurse practitioners.  I am looking forward in learning how this comprehensive program works and the benefits it has to the elderly population.  I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th!
