Cape Fear Memorial Foundation Supports CFCC Radiography Program
Grant will help buy state-of-the-art equipment
Wilmington, NC – In a continued effort to support Cape Fear Community College and its goal to meet the health care training needs of New Hanover County and surrounding areas, Cape Fear Memorial Foundation recently donated $50,000 to the Cape Fear Community College Foundation.
The money is earmarked for an equipment buy, which will significantly enhance the educational experience of CFCC radiography students by exposing them to a full range of equipment used in the field.
“We are very fortunate to have this grant. This technology is state of the art for the field,” said Donna Collentine, Radiography Program Director. “Radiography students will have access to direct digital radiography (DR), the newest method of image processing. We will also be upgrading some of the monitors in the lab to larger screens for image display.”
The addition of this equipment to the current radiography lab will allow students to learn the technology which they will continue to use in their careers, and as a result, make CFCC graduates more marketable to potential employers.
