Student Spotlight

"Nobody wants to get sick. Nobody wants to bring it home to their families, and nobody likes to see their patients not doing well. It's difficult, but everybody is trying to remain calm and be optimistic and provide the best care they can." – Tallon Tomasi '20, HCC nursing student and LPN at the Leavitt Family Jewish Home in Longmeadow
