Nursing Students Educate Community in Hydration and Sanitation, Sand Bag

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 27, 2008 -- Eighteen Sanford-Brown students assisted Missouri community residents who were impacted by raging Mississippi waters, last week. In addition to sand bagging, the nursing students ensured that Clarksville families were educated on proper sanitation, the importance of hand washing, dehydration, heat stroke and insect bites.

Julia Leeman, president of Sanford-Brown College St. Peters, said, “As a neighboring community, giving back is important to us.”

After walking through the affected area, the students noted that there was not an appropriate number of public washrooms or sufficient drinking water; and partnered with the Missouri National Guard to get portable restrooms and fresh water onsite.

Clarksville, a historic artists' town of 500 between St. Louis and Hannibal, Missouri, was swamped on Wednesday. The Sanford-Brown team spoke to the elderly and disabled to determine their needs; and transported water to fill portable stations.
