In the College of Health Sciences, we prepare students with the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver exceptional care in a wide variety of settings. As a College, it is essential that we do more than educate caregivers. We must put the great depth of knowledge and experience of our faculty, staff and students to work making the lives of people better, here at home and in communities around the world. This is why we created the Center for Faith and Health.
“Comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.” 2 Thessalonians 2:17
The Center provides a critical link between our academic programs and the communities we serve. Within the Center, we have collected all of our outreach programs and mission work. It is a model for inter-disciplinary collaboration that reflects the growing team orientation of modern health care practice.
