CLARKSDALE – Youngsters visiting the Children’s Clinic of Clarksdale now have some extra entertainment available as they wait to see the doctor and treats when they leave, thanks to a generous donation by Coahoma Community College Division of Health Sciences.

Representatives from the Division visited the children’s clinic Wednesday to present a donation on behalf of its Faculty and Student Council.

“Each semester, the council aims to conduct at least two community service projects in an effort to give back,” said CCC Health Sciences Navigator Aneika Moore. “This semester, the council agreed to bring smiles to the faces of patients at the Clarksdale Children's Clinic where our Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students are currently engaging in clinical rotations.”

Staff at the clinic thanked CCC for their generosity and for providing highly trained healthcare professions in the community.

CCC’s Division of Health Sciences Faculty and Student Council consists of elected or appointed students and faculty members, who represent each program within the Division.

The purpose of the council is to provide an opportunity for students enrolled in CCC Health Sciences Programs to interact with and communicate with faculty and administration of the Division to identify and address ways to improve the student experience.

The Council’s next project is its annual Coat and Toiletry Drive, which will kick-off Nov.1

“It is our goal each year to give back to Clarksdale and surrounding areas as they always support us in our endeavors as a Division,” Moore said.

For more information about the Coat and Toiletry Drive or to make a donation, contact Moore at (662) 621-4042.
