Guild Upcoming Events

LOGO whiteby: Penny Lauer, Guild President/NHC Board Member

We’re far into summer, and most of our Guild members are still enjoying family and friends “Up North,” but those who are still here in Naples remain active.

The first wave of invitations will be sent via email to all Guild members in September and reservations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. We guarantee that the event will be memorable: we have two very big surprises in store for you.

We’ve kicked off our brand new Dinner Committee, with seven members serving four dinners to NHC volunteers during Clinic hours so far this summer and the feedback … Read more...

Guild Happenings

LOGO whiteby: Penny Lauer, Board/Guild Member

The mission of the Guild for NHC is to serve as ambassadors for the Neighborhood Health Clinic and to raise funds to support patient services.  We would also like add that we serve as direct volunteers to the Clinic.  This season we expanded our Member Chalkboard to include requests for volunteers from the Clinic’s volunteer coordinator.  A list of volunteer opportunities at the Clinic is also now included in our new membership packets.

Marco_finalby: Brett D’Zurilla

“Gold Star Staff” member Marco Perez-Zanelli isn’t your typical college student. Marco attends Florida Gulf Coast University full time where has a minor in Biology and majors in Exercise science; but he’s not stopping there. Once he graduates with his bachelor’s degree he plans on pursuing either a doctorate in Physical Therapy or a master’s in Health Administration. Marco is passionate about what he does; he works as the Lab Coordinator for the Neighborhood Health Clinic most clinic days and also works as a personal trainer for Fitness Together.  He tries to squeeze in some time for fishing on occasion.

Marco’s role at the Neighborhood Health Clinic has changed over time. He recalls walking through the halls of the Clinic for the first time thinking, “Man, I want to be a part … Read more...

National Nurses Week 2014

a5384241-f85f-4ff8-9330-90a75defd2b1by: John Coleman, Clinic Volunteer

The week of May 6th to May 12th was a special time at the Neighborhood Health Clinic. Although there are no bands, no fireworks and no speeches, we very quietly celebrate National Nurses Week. In doing so, our reflections at times focus on “what if” there were no nurses at the Clinic. The ready answer is there would be no Clinic. “What if” there was no Nancy Lascheid, R.N. The answer would be the same.

In a whimsical moment during Nurses Week, some have even imagined a parade of famous nurses marching past our doors. Undoubtedly, it would be led by the most famous nurse of medical history, Florence Nightingale. Ms. Nightingale would be carrying her lantern, which she used while ministering to wounded British soldiers in her … Read more...
