Nursing students pitch in with Union Gospel Mission’s Summer Connect

As part of the annual Summer Connect event organized by the Union Gospel Mission (UGM), UBC Nursing students joined dozens of service providers on June 18 to help residents of the Downtown Eastside access free services such as legal assistance, pet care and bicycle repair.  The students provided a foot soak and care clinic as well as blood pressure screenings.  The event aims to connect residents with services that they need in one venue. For more info, click here.
