Sonography Programs Receive Equipment Donation

Donation will assist students in ultrasound laboratory training.

Johnston Community College’s sonography programs recently received an equipment donation to be used for student training on campus.

Wake Internal Medicine in Raleigh donated an ultrasound machine valued at approximately $10,000. This machine is capable of performing cardiac, abdominal, ob/gyn, and vascular procedures.

“Our primary goal is to provide the finest preparation for our students so that they can become competent health care professionals,” said Steven Penny, sonography programs director. “We are extremely grateful for this donation from Wake Internal Medicine. As a result of this educational contribution, many cohorts of JCC students, and ultimately their future patients, will benefit for years to come.”
