Lorna is a retired nurse practitioner who serves at the UGM Center for Women & Children in Coeur d’Alene, treating colds, flu and respiratory infections, helping with ongoing medication management and creating wellness plans for residents, many of whom have neglected their physical health for years.
Because of Lorna and the other medical professionals who volunteer at UGM, we are truly able to provide whole-person recovery, prevent excessive trips to area emergency rooms, address physical symptoms that might otherwise go untreated and perform well-child check-ups. We are also able to connect residents to additional resources like prescription assistance and Project Access for more critical issues. One woman got the prescription she needed to deal with blood clots in her brain. Many female residents received diagnostic and screening mammograms. One man had hernia surgery; another man’s eyesight was saved. All of this was made possible through volunteers. UGM’s collective heart overflows with gratitude for this clear manifestation of the hands and feet of Jesus.
