In September, the Walla Walla University School of Nursing organized its fourth mission trip to India to provide vaccinations for children.

Led by nursing faculty Rosemarie Buck Khng, Everly Batuik, Fred Troutman and Karen Tetz, 15 students assisted with the distribution of hepatitis A and B, typhoid, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis) and meningococcal vaccines to more than 1,000 people at and near two Seventh-day Adventist schools in the states of Assam and Meghalaya in northeast India.
