Bryant & Stratton College Allied Health Club Helps Community and Each Other

The most important word in this student groups’ title, is “allied”.

Together, they raise money to help local nonprofits. Together, they host blood drives to bring much needed blood to the sick. Together they are students in both medical and non-medical fields driven by a single mission: to help their community

“I personally like the enthusiasm our club brings to brain storm ideas on fundraisers and where to donate our fundraising funds to,” said Len Lukasik president of the Allied Health Club, at the Bryant & Stratton College Milwaukee campus.

“We work together to help out each other in so many different ways, that we are almost like a big family. It shows how our club members get behind one student who is asking for club participation and then receives a bunch of volunteers to help out in an event,” he said.

Every year the club holds a minimum of six fundraisers. Each time, the profits are donated to a local organization such as the American Red Cross, The AIDS Resource Center or The Milwaukee Women’s Center, among others.

And, each time you see a blood drive on campus, that too is the work of the Allied Health Club as they partner with the Blood Center of Wisconsin.

Student membership is free. Each member is only asked to give “time, treasure or talent,” Lukasik said. Read More…

Tap into Nursing with the National Student Nurses Association Richmond Chapter

Nursing students can often spend 40 hours a week attending class, clinicals and internships.

Who has time for extracurricular activities?

The National Student Nurses’ Association is not a typical activity. This club can help students further their career.
