The Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) Advisory Board met on Friday, March 2, 2018 at Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital on the Jefferson College of Health Sciences campus. The MLS Advisory Board is just one of the many groups that work with our academic programs to provide feedback on the current state of recruitment, enrollment and curriculum. These boards are comprised of college representatives, community leaders, students and alumni. Together, they discuss issues and gather feedback from attendees to keep the MLS program innovative and effective. We thought you might enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes as we continue to improve the education we provide to the healthcare leaders of tomorrow.

On Monday, February 22, 2018, a new mini-clinic opened within the Community Care Clinic at Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital (CRCH). The mini-clinic is a collaboration between Jefferson College of Health Sciences’ graduate-level Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program and Carilion Clinic’s Department of Family and Community Medicine.

The mini-clinic is staffed by faculty and students from the FNP program, and Carilion’s Dr. Roger Hofford, who will provide medical direction, as well as mentor the students. The goal of the program is to enhance academic nursing’s role in the community clinic network, and allow FNP students the opportunity to learn about community based practice while improving their clinical skills. In addition, the clinic helps further increase access to care for the uninsured or underinsured individuals currently seen at Community Care Clinic in Roanoke. The mini-clinic is the first of its kind in the area.

Three years in the making, the mini-clinic was spearheaded by Dr. Rhoda Murray, Chair of the Jefferson College’s Nursing Department; Kim Roe, Carilion’s Vice President of Hospital Operations, and Bobby Putnam, Clinical Practice Manager of Community Care at CRCH.
