Governor Lamont has made an urgent plea for those with experience in the health care field to volunteer to assist in the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He asked West Conn President John Clark to reach out to nursing, allied health, and pre-med students with information about how to sign up. Those willing to volunteer can register online at ctresponds.ct.gov and the Department of Public Health will match volunteers with a location in need. Clark stressed that volunteering is a personal decision and is not required for graduation or credit. He called it an opportunity for West Conn students to support Connecticut’s medical efforts during this unprecedented time.
