SPOTLIGHT ON OUR COMMUNITY

Creating Community Champions

UVA's Betsy Grossman is integrated in her local community in Southwest Virginia working to improve knowledge around cancer. She has collaborated with Deb Clarkston, Associate Professor of Nursing at the Virginia Appalachian Tricollege Nursing Program to implement the Understanding Cancer curriculum provided by UVA Cancer Center with nursing students in the Southwest Virginia community. “Students hate busy work. They want to make a difference. The Understanding Cancer program allows them to better understand cancer themselves, the effect cancer has on their community and to complete a teaching project that will make a difference for years to come,” Clarkston stated. These students have made a huge impact since implementing Understanding Cancer, re-teaching what they learned about cancer with over 1000 community members in Southwest Virginia.
