Letter to the Editor: Thanks for Welcoming UW-Madison Nursing Students

Thank you to the Door County community from Door County Medical Center, the Department of Public Health, Sunshine House, the ADRC, Ascension Home Health, Scandia Village, the Northern Door Child Care Center, Door County EMS in Sister Bay and Washington Island, and the WICHP program for providing an excellent glimpse into rural community health for the UW accelerated bachelor’s degree nursing students from Madison. 

This is the second year when we have hosted the program for two weeks in January, and the community of health providers and local restaurants has been incredibly welcoming and happy to make this an excellent experience.

From individual home dinners, the White Gull Inn’s fish boil, Husby’s, the Sister Bay Bowl, Al Johnson’s, the NWTC panel night, and Jess and Jimmy Grasse, the students sampled hospitality and local favorites.

Thanks for making this such an awesome experience and for helping to bring awareness to rural community health issues and practices.
