In the process of carrying out our mission of “creating solutions for healthier communities,” the Health Science Center serves as a tremendous resource for solving real-world problems beyond the boundaries of our campus. Being actively engaged with the needs of our communities allows our students to learn tangible skills and develop a sense of personal responsibility as they become our “providers of the future.”
