Landfall Foundation Supports CFCC Health Science Program
The Landfall Foundation recently donated $5,000 to enable students in Cape Fear Community Collegeâ€™s health sciencesâ€™ programs to become certified in their fields of study.
The grant will assist students in programs such as Medical Sonography, Radiography, Surgical Technology, Phlebotomy, Dental Hygiene, and Pharmacy Technology.
Students in these programs must take certification examinations during their last semester.Â These exams further qualify students for employment in their chosen fields.Â Many students have difficulty paying for the exams.
â€œThe Landfall Foundation grant assists health science students with payment for their certification exams at the end of their programs. This generous grant facilitates the timely completion of these certification exams while the material is fresh in the studentsâ€™ minds,â€ stated Regina McBarron, chair of CFCCâ€™s health sciences department.
The mission of the Landfall Foundation is to provide funds to local nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that provide for the Arts, Education, and Health and Welfare in the Greater Wilmington, North Carolina area.
