Join the College of Nursing and Public Health in tackling childhood influenza!
Did you know that each year, an estimated 20,000 children under the age of 5 are hospitalized because of influenza complications according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and since 2004 it has been reported that over 1,350 children died because of the flu in the US!
The majority of these deaths are preventable. We believe these numbers can be reduced by implementing simple, durable, and affordable training solutions that help learners provide the best quality of nursing care.
The College of Nursing and Public Health simulation labs provide a unique environment in which Adelphi students learn to handle critical health situations. Simulation training has been shown to significantly improve critical thinking and clinical reasoning in complex care situations.
On Giving Day please help us purchase a wireless pediatric simulator that will allow our students more realistic pediatric scenarios focusing on health intervention, prevention of childhood influenza, improving our student’s confidence and competence in tackling this health crisis!
Dr. Paul Quentzel, an alumnus, will be kindly matching gifts made up to $1,000 to help us reach our $2,000 goal.
Join us with your gift today that will make double its impact thanks to Dr. Quentzel's generosity!
