WWU to host car crash survivors

WWU to host car crash survivors

October 15th, 2013 by Elyssa Mann in News

Making good decisions has never been more important to Penny Lorenz and Keller Colley.

Both will be guests at William Woods University Oct. 15 (today) at 12:30 p.m. in the Library Auditorium. They are visiting through ThinkFirst Missouri, a program dedicated to preventing injuries from motor vehicle crashes through teaching, research and public policy. Lorenz is the assistant director of the program, which originates from the University of Missouri School of Medicine, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Kristen Oesch, nurse practitioner at William Woods, thinks this event can benefit both students and the greater community.

"It brings to light the real-life situation for students and other people to be aware of," Oesch said. "Lots of people have had family members or friends that have been affected, and this could help them cope."
