Finlandia Nursing Students Fundraising to Study Abroad in England

March 4, 2019

During the summer of 2019 six Finlandia University students will travel to London to explore and compare the chronic disease management models and methods used in the USA and UK.

Students will visit healthcare facilities to learn about strategies used to improve health of chronically ill populations. They will also visit Oxford City to explore the influence of research done by Oxford University in this field.

To help these students with the cost of their program, the Finlandia nursing students are hosting a spaghetti and salad luncheon on March 17 at the Hancock First United Methodist Church from 12 to 2 p.m.

“The program’s mission is to improve the health of the local population,” said Irina Sergeyeva, Assistant Nursing Professor and advisor to the group traveling to Europe. “This knowledge is gained through the broader knowledge and experience of the new generation of healthcare professionals including the diversity of methods used in the USA and other countries to conquer chronic diseases.

Tickets to the fundraising event will be sold by students in advance as well as at the door. Suggested donations of $8 for adults and $5 for students will be taken at the door, children under three get in free. For more information contact Irina Sergeyeva at irina.sergeyeva@finlandia.edu.
