The Michigan State University College of Nursing has a new center for students, researchers, practitioners and educators to work together on health care issues.
A dedication ceremony is Friday for the three-story, 50,000-square-foot Bott Building for Nursing Education and Research.
The first floor includes classrooms, conference rooms, a student lounge and an atrium. The second and third floors provide space for the Nursing Research Center, where researchers plan to study obesity prevention, symptom management, cancer, gerontology and health promotion.
The school says the building is the first on its East Lansing campus to use geothermal energy for heating and cooling.
