Brunswick, Ga., Oct. 25, 2017—The public is invited to join the College of Coastal Georgia's Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) students as they host a Maternal-Newborn Health Fair at Glynn Place Mall on Saturday, November 4 from noon to 4 p.m. The Nursing program is partnering with Care Net Pregnancy Center of Coastal Georgia to spread awareness about pregnancy, labor, and infant care.
This event is brought to the community as part of the College's Service-Learning curriculum, a teaching and learning method that utilizes a combination of academic course content and relevant service with community agencies. As Nursing Professor Nevada LeCounte and Beverly Rowe's ASN students learn about maternal and newborn health in the classroom, they will share their newly accumulated knowledge with the public as part of their Service-Learning Project. Through structured reflection on the ASN students' Maternal-Newborn Health Fair, students will gain a deeper understanding on their course work while also developing skills that will benefit them—and their patients—after graduation. The fair will not only help community members learn important elements about pregnancy and taking care of infants, but it will also allow students to take classwork and apply it to the real world.
The Maternal-Newborn Fair is a free event that will have nursing students and certified nurses on-hand to answer questions pregnancy, labor, and infant care. The event will also include drawings for a bassinet, car seat, diapers, and much more.
