The Middle Georgia State University Association of Nursing Students (MGSANS) just received the Community Health and Service Award from the Georgia Association of Nursing Students. This award is given to the chapter that held an event or project that impacted the community in the greatest way. MGSANS won the award for efforts in raising $4,000 with a Superhero 5k, which supported a backpack ministry.
MGSANS also won a $1,300 grant from Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei (Bone Marrow Donor Program). MGSANS was able to add 151 people to the bone marrow registry by hosting a “swabbing event.”
