CMH lands first grant.. .
Cimarron Memorial Hospital 's CEO, Patsy Shields, (seated), and grantwriter Jolene Helms, look over the materials for an anti-smoking course to be introduced into the county's school systems. The course will begin with preschool students through the third grade. The course materials allow for the students to be taught by either Helms or individual teachers. The course has a variety of activities including pictures to be colored and sent back for judging. The materials are supplied by The American Lung Assoc. and the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Shields said that other grants have been applied for, including a Nutrition Grant and a grant for a permanant Cat-Scan. Shields said the search is still on-going for a Nurse Practioner. “We want a good fit for the hospital and the community,” she said.
