Community Service

The Center's faculty, staff, and students volunteer to support the Richmond, Roanoke, Southwest and Northern Virginia communities. In collaboration with programs such as Kids into Health Careers, SEED Camp, Jump Rope to Stethoscope, STEM, Kids Tech University , and the VCU Acceleration program, the Center introduces elementary, middle, and high school students to the opportunities available through a career in the health care professions. Information is provided to these students through a breif lecture and reinforced in the hands-on simulation lab where learners begin to understand how to take care of a patient presenting for surgery.
