In the last five years TCL has graduated about 500 health care professionals, many of whom are now employed right here in the Lowcountry, Sapp said.
“The continued support from Hilton Head Hospital Auxiliary has helped ensure success for many health sciences students who upon graduating provide quality health care to countless patients in our own communities and beyond,” Sapp said.
