Senior Citizens Thankful to MSM Students for Help in Getting a Safer Crosswalk
As a part of the curriculum in their Community Health class, Morehouse School of Medicine work with the residents at the Adamsville Green Senior Living. Over the last few years, while taking care of residents’ bodies, students learned that the seniors were concerned about the unsafe crosswalk in front of their building.
After hearing the residents’ concerns, these future doctors went above and beyond their duties and took action and reached out to local politicians to see what could be done. This winter, a safer crosswalk was installed and residents at the senior housing are overjoyed and thankful for the students’ commitment to the community.
Watch the video from CBS46's Vince Sims to learn how the students got it done and to see the senior citizens’ response.
