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.”
Mercy College family,
As we head back to school to start a new Fall semester and a new academic year, I would like to extend a special welcome to our new and returning students to campus.
We hope that as you embark on your academic year that you take a few moments to learn about or reflect on the College history and the mission of the Sisters of Mercy. Their mission is the foundation of the College as we offer education in health care focused professional programs, blended on a foundation of a general education core of liberal arts and science (LAS), and mission fulfillment (our Core Values). I hope that you grow to realize the significant role integrating LAS and mission through service learning and leadership has on your professional studies and career.
Provost Langdon welcomes Aminazahra & Tiffany,
both of whom are Mercy College students, to the Fall semester with a few snacks.
As I get ready for my first day rotating in palliative care, I wonder what is in store?
What am I going to experience? At this point in my academic career, I have a general idea of what palliative care is, but what I'm not sure of is how it will actually manifest itself. After only a few minutes meeting the team and discussing the day, my initial thoughts are why isn't this, palliative care, something that is more common? Why isn’t this being used across all healthcare settings?
