ECC Nursing Students Raise Funds for Suicide Prevention

Forty-seven Essex County College Nursing students, along with two faculty members, spent a recent Sunday afternoon in Verona Park for a very good cause. They were participants in the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention’s Essex County “Out of the Darkness” Walk held on Sunday, October 30.

The ECC contingent raised $240 for the Foundation.

“The students had the opportunity to experience the stories of the advocates, families and survivors, and attend the various booth workshop on the day of the walk. We look forward to networking with the Foundation on suicide prevention workshops,” said ECC Nursing Professor Jennifer Chapman. Fellow Nursing Professor Natalee White-Smith also participated in the walk.
