Greetings from Dean Simonian

Greetings from the Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions at Weber State University. Our college has been very active in offering excellent education and providing opportunities to our students, faculty and staff for advancing in their chosen field. 

Featured in this issue of our newsletter are several points of pride and stories of interest to our college. Our School of Nursing will be starting its first class of the Master of Science in Nurse Practitioner. Our respiratory therapy students received an impressive award from The Commission of Accreditation for Respiratory Care. Additionally, our Medical Laboratory Sciences students won the first place poster award at The American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science conference. Finally, many of our faculty completed advanced degrees. Congratulations are in order for all of them. We will be highlighting Janelle Gardiner and Lori Fredericksen in this issue. 

As you can see, it's a great time to be part of the Dumke College at Weber State University! It is an honor to serve as the dean of this accomplished college. I invite you to read our newsletter and look forward to future issues.
