In recognition of the annual Housing America Campaign in October, through the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), Greensboro Housing Authority (GHA) held an event to celebrate 35 years of partnership with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) School of Nursing and a 10-year partnership with The Wellspring Group. This collaboration provides GHA senior communities, Hall Towers and Gateway Plaza, with Wellness Clinics that offer regular health assessments, assistance with management of health problems, health screenings, education, and referrals. These clinics have been an integral part of the services that GHA offers to residents.
GHA Board Chairman Manuel Dudley delivers a warm welcome to GHA and UNCG Nursing School Attendees
The celebration was held at Hall Towers on October 2, 2018, with remarks from GHA, Wellspring and UNCG School of Nursing. Residents of Hall Towers and Gateway Plaza shared accounts of how they have utilized and benefitted from the clinics. Additionally, nursing students from UNCG also expressed appreciation for the opportunity to have hands-on experiences in the clinics that have contributed to a greater understanding of patient care and the real world of providing health services.
Through this partnership, GHA assists residents in treating their whole selves because affordable housing alone cannot prevent the health concerns that affect our residents. GHA is honored to be a part of such an innovative and long-standing collaboration and looks forward to the next 35 years of service.
