Containing the same tools and equipment you would find in a real life clinical setting, simulation labs give students the chance to practice their learned skills while running through a variety of patient care scenarios, roleplaying with classmates, and working with high fidelity manikins without compromising a patient’s safety.
“We are grateful to The Cannon Foundation for their generous investment in our college and community,” said Dr. Amanda Lee, President of Bladen Community College “The grant, totaling $100,000, will be used to significantly upgrade our instruction and skills development. We are committed to effectively using the upgrades to improve learning experiences for our students and sharing these opportunities with local health care employers. These renovations will ensure the our campus remains an innovative center of learning in our area.”
The Cannon Foundation was established in 1943 by Charles A. Cannon, president and CEO of Cannon Mills Co. The foundation continues his philanthropic legacy by funding capital and equipment projects for organizations across Cannon’s home state of North Carolina. The Cannon Foundation focuses extensively on health care, higher education, human services and community. To date, the foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $305 million.
