Bethel College Nursing Students Examine Health Issues in Mishawaka

Thursday, Bethel College nursing students tackled health issues local residents are faced with.

As part of their curriculum, the nursing students do a semiannual survey of the community and look at issues that residents are concerned with.

This year's survey focused on Mishawaka.

The number one issue Mishawaka residents were concerned about, access to healthcare. “So the whole point is to show what the citizens can do to improve the personal quality of their own health in their own lives and in the lives of their children,” explains Registered Nurse, Venita Massey.

Other items topping the list of concerns for residents are the amount of uninsured and underinsured and poverty.

Using the survey results, the students will determine how to best minimize the concerns.
