The Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation based in Annapolis, Md., made a challenge grant available to the Anne Arundel Community College Foundation Inc. in the amount of $50,000 to benefit the college School of Health Professions, Wellness and Physical Education’s Simulation Lab project.
This challenge was based on the premise that the grant would be awarded when the foundation secured $100,000 in additional support. Such support is in place. The gift totaling $150,000 will fund technology upgrades this year to enable the labs on the AACC Arnold campus to have faculty-free monitoring of emergency situation procedures of students during simulation to better prepare student nurses, emergency medical technicians and physician assistants to enter the workforce. Cutting-edge medical training technology upgrades will also enable videotaping of procedures and streaming of procedures from the simulation labs to classrooms and for online-learning modules.
The foundation is seeking additional contributions of funds, equipment or technology for AACC academic programs. Anyone interested in supporting or learning more about the Health Simulation Lab project may contact the foundation at 410-777-2515 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
