Institute for Rural Health Receives Gift

*Original story from http://wkunews.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/wku-irh-gift/

WKU’s Institute for Rural Health (IRH) has received a $50,000 gift from the Good Samaritan Foundation Inc., a ministry of the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

“The generous gift from the Good Samaritan Foundation Inc. will be used to purchase new equipment to replace ever-changing and obsolete equipment, and this will add to the educational experiences of WKU students,” IRH Director Matt Hunt said. “Students who have access to the newest and best tools of their trade will be better equipped when they enter the workforce. This is essential to continue to provide students in the College of Health and Human Services with the best educational experience and practical application.”

Hunt said the gift would also be used to purchase medical and dental supplies to serve the community.

Continued success of the IRH means that more WKU students have experienced real fieldwork and that more members of rural communities have received health care and health education, an essential component and cornerstone of the IRH mission. The IRH believes that students learn from every patient, Hunt said, and the more patients that the IRH is able to see and treat, the more knowledge and real-world experiences the students of the CHHS receive as part of their education.
