The School of Health Sciences at Winston-Salem State University has received a $15,000 donation from the Averill Foundation to support simulation training. The grant funded the purchase of an Enovate Smart Cart and technical training for faculty. The equipment will be based in the School of Health Sciences Virtual Hospital where students engage in simulated learning prior to their clinical rotations. Larry and Sue Averill, trustees for the Averill Foundation, recently presented the donation to WSSU.

“We are grateful to Larry and Sue Averill for their support, as we provide state-of-the-art learning for students,” said Dr. Peggy Valentine, dean of the School of Health Sciences. “This will help us better meet the demands of preparing students for clinical practice.”

The School of Health Sciences at Winston-Salem State enrolls more than 1,500 students pursuing careers in nursing and allied health professions.
