Wayside Christian Mission

Providing hope for people in need.





                          U of L Nursing Students Gain Real World Experience

       The University of Louisville School of Nursing's Dr. Catherine Batscha is known for taking her students out of the classroom and into real world settings.  On a recent morning, Dr. Batscha's students conducted a smoking cessation class for the benefit of a group of women in Wayside Christian Mission's recovery program.  As a number of our resident clients suffer from respiratory health issues, the workshop could not have come at a better time.  Here is what Dr. Batscha's students had to say about their experience at Wayside Christian Mission:


"I have enjoyed the experience of getting to know more about the community and informing them about healthy lifestyles."--Katie


"I really enjoyed being able to work with people who need my help and appreciate what we do!"--Amelia


"I have enjoyed getting a new perspective of our community.  I also liked getting to know the women here and I hope that our class has made a difference in someone's life!"--Kacy


"This class is a great experience. I never realized the difference we could make in people's lives!"--Josh


"The adage goes, 'If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for life.'  What we do is teach people to live and we can extend and improve their lives immeasurably."--Adam


     Among the topics addressed were smoking related diseases, short and long term benefits of quitting, and proven methods for breaking the habit.  To their credit, Dr. Batscha's students gave a professional presentation that was well-received by those in attendance.  We are grateful to all those who participated in this event.
