durham nursing & rehabilitation center

Description:
I visited and conversed with residents to relieve them from social isolation. I also helped coordinate group activities in the center to facilitate interaction among the residents to increase their social participation and physical activity.
Relation to Grand Challenge:
This experience gave me the opportunity to interact with individuals suffering from various neurological or psychiatric disorders. Such an experience gave me a better understanding of research directions that would benefit the individuals the most and taught me appropriate response in certain clinical situations.
