Ten Belmont students, members of the Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) – Premedical Honor Society, recently volunteered at Project C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment). Nashville’s Project C.U.R.E. is one of five distribution centers in the U.S. where donated medical supplies are sorted, packaged and labeled to be sent to various countries that do not have the healthcare system or infrastructure found in the U.S.
AED members sorted through medical supplies and prepared them to be shipped. Thanks to the dedication of thousands of volunteers nationwide, two to three cargo containers of life-saving aid leave Project C.U.R.E.’s warehouses every week.
In addition to the support from Belmont’s AED chapter, the School of Nursing (SON) donates any medical supplies that are unable to be used in lab simulations to Project C.U.R.E. For more information on the SON’s endeavors, click here.
