Over the summer, Jean Angel, a Physical Therapist Assistant student, and Jordan Schmitt, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing student, were able to combine this dual emphasis on head and heart with a trip to the United Nations. Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters allow students from the various Mercy-tradition colleges through the country to join them in a “U.N. immersion experience,” where students accompany the Sisters as they advocate for the poor and vulnerable at the U.N. in New York City, and share strategies of advocating locally that students take home with them.
Two students from Mercy College are heading to the United Nations (U.N.), New York from June 1st through June 3rd to join an experience with the Mercy International Association, put on by the Sisters of Mercy. Jean Angel, a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) student, and Jordan Schmitt, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) student, were selected out of an interview process to join the Sisters of Mercy as they discuss the Critical Concerns of the Community, including the problem of human trafficking.
