By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– Cal State San Bernardino Palm Desert Campus nursing students were part of the Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine’s effort to provide more than 90 free COVID-19 tests to the underserved and uninsured of the East Valley, most of whom are farm workers.

Fourteen nursing students from the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus, led by their instructor Diane Vines and working along side U.S. Rep. Raul Ruiz — who is also a physician — participated in COVID-19 testing and follow-up calls for 200 migrant farm workers in Mecca on April 29, and will be doing additional follow up today, Friday, May 1, at free test locations organized by the Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine.
