Lori's Hands in the Classroom
As in previous semesters, University of Delaware students have the opportunity to participate in a Discovery Learning course that addresses chronic illness from many angles. Students this semester learned about topics such as chronic illness and mental health, health care policy, caregivers, aging in place, and more. To supplement the learning experience, students visited Lori's Hands clients on a weekly basis to offer assistance and discuss concepts learned in the classroom. As the semester draws to a close, several students have shared that volunteering with Lori's Hands was the most memorable experience of their entire college careers.
