“I was thrilled to learn of this new partnership between the Greece Chamber Charitable Foundation and the Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing. It is the first of its kind to provide financial support specifically for a student in the Greece area or Unity Hospital community. Greater support for our students means greater care for our community,”
