Much obliged

Bazaar was a big fundraiser

I’d like to thank everyone who attended our annual bazaar at Essentia Health St. Joseph’s Medical Center. The money raised at this year’s bazaar is going to partial payment of the Sim Man. The SimMan® is a realistic, full-body adult, wireless patient simulator that offers comprehensive clinical functionality to teach the core skills of airway, breathing, cardiac and circulation management and will be used to help train staff, volunteers and community members!

The Bazaar was one of the biggest fundraisers the Auxiliary has ever done.
