Other Volunteer Opportunities

Lancaster County Nurse Honor Guard

Joni Sweigart (Nursing ’82) is looking for volunteers interested in helping to launch the Lancaster County Nurse Honor Guard. This newly formed group would provide honor guard services – much like those provided by veterans, firefighters and police – at nurses’ funerals or memorial services upon request. Nurse Honor Guard members would wear formal uniforms, possibly including the traditional nurse’s cap and cape. They might incorporate a lantern or white rose into the service, and the Nurse’s Prayer might be read.

Joni and some of her follow nurses will hold their first organizational meeting on Monday, May 6, 2019.  Please contact Joni at jonisweigart@comcast.net to volunteer, make suggestions, or request additional information.   

Share Your History with the Edward Hand Medical Heritage Foundation

The Board of Directors of the Edward Hand Medical Heritage Foundation invites our alumni to share their expertise on the history of nursing and the allied health professions in Lancaster County.

The Edward Hand Medical Heritage Foundation was founded in 1982 to preserve and make accessible the rich heritage of the healing arts, with special attention given to Lancaster County.  The Edward Hand Medical Museum includes more than 11,000 artifacts, many of which are used in historical and medical research by students, specialists and local historians. 

The Foundation is particularly interested in gathering more information on the history of nursing and nursing education in Lancaster, which would include the Lancaster General Hospital School of Nursing.

More information is available on the Foundation website. Please email the Foundation to volunteer or request additional information.
