Robert G. Graw Jr., M.D., of Davidsonville, CEO of Righttime Medical Care, has made a personal matching gift contribution of $50,000 to support and assist in the purchase of equipment and technology upgrades for the Anne Arundel Community College Health Professions Simulation Labs.
Every dollar raised for the simulation labs benefiting the AACC nursing, emergency medical technician and physician assistant classes will be matched up to this amount.
Dr. Grawand Righttime Medical Care are also helping by strengthening community ties and establishing partnerships between Anne Arundel Community College and other organizations to develop resources that will provide equipment and additional financial support for the simulation labs.
“The hands-on learning taking place in the simulation labs is invaluable and prepares students for successful clinical experiences and future employment at the region’s health care facilities,” said Claire L. Smith, Ed.D., dean of the AACC School of Health Professions, Wellness and Physical Education. “Ideally, they need to practice these skills with state-of-the-art equipment and technology that at least matches what exists in the workplace.”
Even slightly used or outdated equipment can contribute significantly to the learning experience and is welcomed as a donation.
AACC’s nursing students consistently achieve a 100 percent pass rate on the NCLEX-RN Licensure Exam. Anyone interested in contributing or learning more about the simulation labs may contact the AACC Foundation Inc. at 410-777-2515 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
