While COVID-19 case numbers are starting to go down in Pennsylvania, the state’s healthcare facilities are still overwhelmed.  FOX-43 recently spoke with Geoffrey Roche and Dr. Nancy Mimm of Harrisburg University of Science and Technology faculty on the topic.

The segment is here:

Roche, who serves on many health task forces in the state, is on the population health team at Harrisburg University.  Mimm leads the M.S. in Nursing program at HU, which has a focus on population health, as well as the Population Health Management graduate certificate.

Additionally, the University’s new $100 million Education Center will house several health sciences programs aimed at preparing students for careers in various health fields. The new building will contain 260,000 square feet of academic space and will accommodate at least 1,000 new students in nursing, pharmaceutical sciences, and other allied health programs. The center also will include classrooms and training space for HU’s Advanced Manufacturing and Interactive Media programs, in addition to auditoriums, student life, and tutoring areas.

The M.S. in Nursing is offered online or in a hybrid format.  More information on the program is found here
