The School of Nursing at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro is a partner in the new Diabetes Education, Prevention, and Management Center. Students and faculty at nursing school will serve as counselors at the center, which is being operated with the Greensboro Urban Ministry and the Moses Cone Health Nutrition and Diabetes Management Center. The center is free and open to all.
Inez Tuck, dean of the School of Nursing, stated that “this is an extension of our mission. Our goal is to educate our students and to help create a healthy community.”
“The center will also prepare students to work with a diverse population and will help make them aware of the resources available in the community,” said Schenita Randolph, assistant professor in the School of Nursing and interim director for Community Engagement and Clinical Translation.
