RN to BSN faculty members organized a health fair which took place at the UPS center in Bowling Green on April 1st. Twenty-four students enrolled in WKU's on-line RN to BSN program participated in the health fair. UPS employees visited various health promotion displays including high blood pressure, sun safety, diabetes, healthy back, healthy living, MRSA, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. This served as a student engagement activity for the students’ public health nursing course. Faculty and staff that accompanied the students were Tonya Bragg-Underwood, Carol Evans, Kathleen Riley, Michelle Tedder, and Cathy Abell.
Western Kentucky University’s (WKU) Department of Public Health is now offering a Joint Undergraduate Master’s Program, JUMP-MHA.
The Institute for Rural Health (IRH) in the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) received a $50,000 grant from the Good Samaritan Foundation Inc., a ministry of the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Kelsey Bullock, a graduate student in the Master of Science in Environmental and Occupational Health Science, will intern with the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
