Student nurses from Northwestern State University Leesville-Fort Polk volunteered at the DeRidder Wal-Mart for the SIDS and Safe Sleep Event sponsored by the Department of Health and Hospitals, Region V Office of Public Health, on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. They assisted the Office of Public Health staff to set up displays, register shoppers for prizes, and hand out Safe Sleep Information. Nursing instructor, Wendi Palermo, said, “It was a great opportunity for the NSU Leesville-Fort Polk nursing students to perform a valuable community service and to partner with the Office of Public Health to decrease the incidence of SIDS cases in the NSU region and the state.” Palermo’s nursing students volunteer for this project annually.  Pictured here from left to right are student nurses Laura Davis, Rebecca Kiely, Katie Johnson, Sarie Arthur, and Barbara Davis.
