In her first semester of teaching a service-learning course, Professor Amy Bowles and her students’ poster presentation of their work was voted “Best in Show” by College faculty, staff, students and community members at the 2020 Service-Learning Symposium in spring. The service-learning component of the Mental Health Nursing that won the poster award was a collaboration between The Remedy Project, an addiction services organization, and first year, second semester nursing students. Student groups were assigned with a region of Georgia, northern Florida, or southern South Carolina and were tasked with compiling information about rehabilitation facilities within the region. The Remedy Project has said that this resource has already helped many families find the right facilities for their loved ones.
“This past winter, Amy Bowles and her nursing students collaborated with our addiction counseling staff at the Remedy Project to compile a comprehensive list of inpatient alcohol and drug treatment facilities in Georgia and the surrounding areas. Thanks to Amy for her vision and leadership for this much needed resource. When someone comes to us who is ready to get help the timing is critical to find the appropriate facility to meet that person’s individual needs. This incredible resource helps us to facilitate this process more efficiently which then has the potential to save lives. Thank you so much Amy, we couldn’t of done it without you!!”
