Newsroom Donates to NMC Nursing Club (November 30, 2009)

The Northern Marianas College’s Student Nursing Club recently received a donation to assist with the purchasing of supplies and materials that the Club uses in its Community Health Awareness events, where its members conduct free blood pressure and blood sugar checks.

Co-owner Nathan Benson of, a realty and consulting firm, made the donation earlier this month and presented it to Club president Miles Rodriguez and vice-president Kwon Sohn.

“I’d like to thank Mr. Benson for his generous donation,” said Club president Miles Rodriguez. “The contribution will help us obtain ample supplies and materials necessary to carrying out our goals of promoting health awareness in the community.”

The NMC Nursing Club has been providing the communities on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota with free blood pressure, blood sugar, and diabetes screenings for the past several years. The Club welcomes any form of support from the community to increase and enhance its various volunteer activities.

“The College is extremely thankful for this donation,” said NMC President Dr. Carmen Fernandez. “I applaud Mr. Benson for recognizing our students’ service to the CNMI community.”

Some other community events at which the NMC Nursing Club frequently conduct free health screenings include the “Lead Screening for Head Start Program,” “Walk on Wednesday,” the “Wise Women Village Project,” and “Family Fun Day.”
