In November, seniors in Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology Program took part in a community service project at St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton.
Joan Cooper Bonczek, M.S. R.T., Chairperson of the Radiologic Technology Program, stated, “The purpose of service projects like this is to give back to the community while also establishing a positive example of the spirit of giving in our students.”
Kathy Novack, Director of Recreation at St. Joseph’s Center, informed students about what the Center has to offer and led a tour of the facility. Students then participated in recreation time with patients. They took into consideration that each patient has diverse and specific needs and exhibited care when helping patients take part in activities, which included playing with a large, colorful parachute and partaking in a special version of musical chairs.
“The community project was definitely an inspirational one. Our students experienced another element of the healing sciences that is essential to developing a complete understanding of patient care,” Ms. Bonczek explains.
