Mitchel earns Glenwood Auxiliary Award Scholarship
ULM health studies major Kady Mitchel, a senior from Pineville, recently earned a Glenwood Auxiliary Award Scholarship. She plans to pursue a graduate degree in occupational therapy following graduation.
The Glenwood Regional Medical Center Auxiliary Scholarship Committee presented a $1,000 scholarship to Mitchel and to two other area university students at a breakfast held in their honor Friday, June 20.
Dr. Paula Griswold, assistant professor of health studies at ULM, commended Mitchel’s achievement. “Kady is a good student and has excelled in the Health Studies Program. She has definitely raised the bar for those that follow her. I am very proud of her accomplishments.”
More about the ULM Health Studies Program:
It begins with two years of guided liberal arts courses including humanities, mathematics and sciences on the main campus. Health studies students then study a variety of health study courses during the final two years.
The Health Studies Program also offers the Healthcare Marketing/Management option online in an accelerated format. The on-campus and online curricula are very similar; however, all health studies courses in the online program are offered in an eight-week accelerated system. The online accelerated method provides limited disruption to a student’s life while maintaining efficient, high quality education.
Department Head Dr. Jessica Dolecheck guarantees that, “The Health Studies program also offers personal attention, multidisciplinary learning, a practicum, close ties to a major teaching hospital, and cutting-edge education relevant to healthcare. Students will find a supportive and friendly faculty in the Health Studies Department who are eager to help them succeed in their studies and healthcare career.”
