Prior to coming to CMH she worked as a med/telm, med/surg tech for ten years. Jennifer is now attending Wilmington College to obtain her BA and hopes to work in healthcare communications.  Shelby has worked at CMH for three years as an OB Tech in the Mother Baby Care Unit.

The HACC Medical Scholarship Fund was created in 2011 to show appreciation and thanks to the many CMH employees that have supported and still support the fund raising events of the Health Alliance.

The Health Alliance raises money with their Book Fairs, $5 Jewelry Sales and the annual Holiday Ball and Auction. That money is used to assist patients through the Community Care Hospice, Heather’s Hope, Clinton County Health Department Children’s Immunization Program, Cancer Patient’s Assistance Program (CPAP) and to help support the HACC Scholarship Fund.
