Mission

The mission of the Health Science Program is to prepare students for graduate school and the marketplace for purposes of enhancing the health wellness statuses of the students/clients who they serve. Given the ever-widening health disparities between white Americans and populations of color, this goal becomes more relevant each subsequent year. Narrowing that gap can be achieved with well-prepared students embarking on a career in the health sciences.
