A primary focus of the Gardner-Webb Hunt School of Nursing is to create hands-on opportunities for students to serve in their communities. Recently, nursing instructors Becky Threatt and Sharon Hall worked on a research project that will connect the College of Health Sciences with a community health initiative. Threatt and Hall, also students in the GWU Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, were assigned a project on epidemiology, the study of how disease spreads and can be controlled.
