FastMed Celebrates its 2nd Location in Raleigh, NC
On October 13th, 2012, FastMed opened its 27th clinic in North Carolina at 1311 East Millbrook Rd., in Raleigh (at the corner of East Millbrook and Falls of Neuse). In celebration, we hosted a free community event and invited the neighborhood to join us for face painting, balloon art, a gaming truck, frozen yogurt, a taco bar provided by Tijuana Flats, free flu shots, corn hole and more. Raleigh Radiology attended and supported our opening by giving away water bottles, give-a-way items and a raffle for an iPod shuffle! The winner was Lashandra Smith, a fourth grade school teacher at Durant Road Elementary School in Raleigh, NC.
Lashandra plans on using the iPod shuffle in her classroom in conjunction with their class’s iPad. She will use the iPod to download audio for her literacy block to help model how to pronounce vocabulary words, read with expression and model what fluent reading sounds like. She said her students are starting to learn bigger words and being able to actually hear what the words sound like together will help them in the long run. Currently, she has over 30 audio books downloaded to her iPod and the students will use their ear buds to take turns and listen to the audio books.
Congratulations Lashandra Smith! FastMed Urgent Care and Raleigh Radiology are proud to help support you and your school!!
