18 Engagement and Access “Wow! Who would have thought you could have all of this in one building!” “I’m so glad that Pitt Community College is in this area. We need more stuff like this out here.” “This is so much easier than taking my son all the way out to Pitt’s campus. Gas is too high to be driving all the way out there!” “Free computer classes in this area? That’s great!”

19 Active Learning and Student Success
PCC students have interned in medical assisting and when staffing and patient volume allows we hope to have nursing students and radiography students HIT students have done a class assignment at the medical clinic

20 Active Learning and Student Success
“So many different cultures. Not just ethnicities but cultures and socioeconomic status as well. Our populations vary. Some have little health insurance, some have none, some are migrant farm workers.” “I see people from all different countries like Iraq and Iran. Even our Hispanic population is not just from Mexico but Cuba and Columbia as well. I really rely heavily on the staff interpreting.” My communication skills have improved a lot. I have to really be mindful of all aspects especially body language. I am more mindful of differences and beliefs that are not my own.”
