Two years ago, Ruth moved to Florence, SC, and heard about the Felician Center in Kingstree, SC. As the head of the nursing department of Francis Marion University, Ruth received some funding from the University to have nursing students do a practicum at the Felician Center.
Once a month, Ruth, Marty Hucks, Lynn Kennedy and about eight nursing students travel to Kingstree to do health screenings for the underserved. Glucose, blood pressures, cholesterol and eye testings help those participating to be referred or assisted by the Felician Sisters of Kingstree.
After her visit at the Felician Center, Ruth said, “It just felt right to be working with Felician Sisters again.”
