"The health sciences program has prepared me for a career in the health care field, as well as taught me valuable lessons that I will carry with me throughout my life. I was not aware how helpful this community would be when I entered as a freshman, but I am beyond thankful for the education and support I have received from the health sciences faculty. As a student, it has been so comforting to know that your professors and program staff are available to help in any way to ensure your success."
