Mercy College 2017 Commencement Ceremony
Friday, April 28, 2017
Pinning Ceremony - 1:00 p.m.
The Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities extended a great privilege to Mercy College Faculty Dr. Bud Marr and Bo Bonner when, through coordination with Mercy College President Barbara Decker, the two were asked to contribute on the white paper “Diversity in Healthcare Professions: A Catholic Higher Education Imperative.”
Contact Bo Bonner with questions at email@example.com.
Dr. James Poole, Emergency Department Physician from Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines, teaches surgical airways to Mercy College Critical Care Paramedic students using pig tracheas.
In an unassuming space, within a small private college, in the middle of downtown Des Moines, a community is showing just how much they care.
To qualify for the President's List, students must attain a grade point average (GPA) of 3.75 or higher, in their most recent semester, for a minimum of six credit hours.
Sister Patricia Talone, RSM, PHD, was most recently the Vice President of Mission Services for the Catholic Health Association of the United States. She retired from that position in 2016, and is now setting about using her vast knowledge and extensive experience as a consultant, lecturer and writer on ethics, mission and formation.
As a Sister of Mercy for nearly 60 years, Sr. Talone embodies a lifetime of working in the Spirit of the Sisters of Mercy, specifically in the field of healthcare and ethics. Sr. Talone will be joining us February 9th to give the lecture A Vision For Healthcare Reform, meditating on the foundation of Healthcare in the Catholic tradition as lived through the Charism of the Sisters of Mercy.
