Welcome to the JCHS Snapshot webpage! Jefferson College of Health Sciences is really hopping these days and we want to give you a glimpse into everyday life on our campus. From student activities to hosting VIPs from our community, there’s always something going on at JCHS!

This page will feature snapshots of students, faculty and staff, as well as guests, in our new spaces at Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital and in our surrounding community.

We hope you enjoy these shots and will visit this page often to see new photos!
