Where are you spending the summer? What are you doing?
This summer I'm spending a lot of time in the city gaining experience as a Nursing Assistant at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Intensive Care. In April, I attended the annual National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA) conference in Nashville, TN. In my spare time I've been visiting Cape Cod and enjoying the beautiful summer weather!
How did you get involved with the Tobacco Free Committee?
I first became involved in Tobacco Free Simmons when Dean Judy Beal sent an email asking to establish a committee to promote health awareness and represent the students in the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. At our first meeting she asked students if we were interested in helping her to continue an initiative to make Simmons a tobacco free campus that she had brainstormed and started to set in motion two years ago. Immediately, I wanted to be on the frontline and really help make this happen for Simmons. I wanted to put my passion for advocating health awareness as a future nurse to work. For the wellness of the environment where I learn and live as a student and for my peers and fellow members of the Simmons community, I wanted to take the lead in establishing a tobacco free campus.
