A group of healthcare students at Pontiac Continuing Education Centre are raising funds for a humanitarian trip that would offer them the work placement of a lifetime.
The project is the brainchild of two instructors for the program, Heidi Hall and Susanne Poirier, who travelled to the Dominican Republic last year to volunteer their skills and step out of their comfort zone. This year, they’re looking to make the trip back to the same area, this time with a group of 11 students and instructors.
