As I am writing we are having another visit by an accrediting body. That is a good thing. We are thankful to God that our excellence is being acknowledged. Of course, there are still areas where we can improve, so we appreciate any recommendations as well. AUHS has accredited programs in nursing (BSN and MSN Family Nurse Practitioner, APRN) and pharmacy.
In this issue we have some news about poison emergencies, an update on COVID-19, discussion about the role of formative assessments in education, and information on Alzheimer’s disease. A highlight is the program of the Summer Schools on Stress recently held at the School of Medicine.
Our hardworking staff are providing valuable updates on recruiting superheroes, library resources, and a well-deserved promotion. Our Spotlight highlights one of our oldest and hardest working staff members.
Our foundation helped with volunteers at a community event thus showing the true spirit of AUHS, and the Salt and Light ministry provides us with some words of encouragement. We end as always with an inspiring poem from our Pastor. May you be blessed by this month’s Trinium.
