Conway High School donates medical supplies to Tidelands Health
Conway High School has donated medical supplies to Tidelands Health to support the health system amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The school donated boxes of gloves, masks, gowns and more items that are typically used for teaching in pharmacology and health science classes.
Lucia Watson, a health science technology teacher at Conway High School who also works at Tidelands Health, said health system team members have supported the pharmacology program for years by offering tours of the hospital pharmacy to students and regularly speaking to pharmacology classes.
The state Department of Education approved the donation to those on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle.
“We appreciate everything that Tidelands Health does for us with our pharmacology students,” Watson said. “Any way we can help we are happy to do so.”
Donations like this one not only provide crucial medical supplies but also lift the spirits of medical professionals by letting them know the community supports them during this challenging time, said Pam Maxwell, chief nursing officer at Tidelands Health.
“Tidelands Health is so appreciative of Conway High School for showing support for our team of medical professionals and patients through this generous donation of crucial supplies,” she said. “With a worldwide shortage of medical supplies, donations like this one mean so much to our team and community.”
