It's been about a month since I last posted on my blog....sorry for the delay! First, happy holidays to all! As we get ready to enter a new year I can't help but to be extremely excited about what's in store for all of us at Salus. Our students are will be preparing for a new semester - some the last semester in their professional school journey, and others, a continuation of their academic and professional journey. No matter where they are in their journey, each of our young professionals will have an opportunity to make their mark on the American healthcare system as it changes to meet the needs of a growing aging population in an economically challenging healthcare delivery environment. I firmly believe our students and graduates will be well prepared to actively engage and positively affect the national healthcare debate, whether it be concerning scope of practice issues or healthcare policy. Salus professionals are poised to have a positive impact on the way healthcare is delivered and practiced in the U.S. as well as internationally, as we enter this new year.
Also on the horizon for 2014 I'm hoping to realize several partnerships with some of our Philadelphia academic neighbors that will result in a changed landscape for healthcare delivery and education in the city to include a Patient Centered Medical Home and some related academic programs. You will also see an improved website that should be more interactive and easier to navigate. So, as you all sit and sip your hot chocolate, or whatever you might be sipping on this Christmas morning, think about what we at Salus will bring to the healthcare table in the upcoming year.....it's an exciting thought! Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy New Year!
