Greetings from Roseman University’s South Jordan, Utah campus.
As always, I’m pleased to share with you the wonderful things our students, faculty and staff are doing on our campus, not only in the areas of teaching and learning, but in service to our Salt Lake City area communities.
Most notable is our College of Dental Medicine patient voucher program, which was shared in last month’s edition of spectRUm. We’re offering $250 vouchers to new and existing patients to receive dental care in our clinic. This is to help those in our communities who have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people have delayed dental care during the pandemic, which can potentially lead to more severe dental problems in the future. This program offers a financial incentive to seek care. It also offers our dental students and faculty the opportunity to serve more patients. To date, I’m proud to share that we’ve completed more than $600,000 in care to 3,725 patients as a result of this program. The $250 voucher is available through the remainder of March.

I’d like to also acknowledge the College of Pharmacy’s Dr. Catherine Cone who, along with volunteer students and faculty, have stepped up to assist Davis County in its COVID-19 vaccination efforts. With each Roseman volunteer devoting 16 hours per week to the effort, they have helped vaccinate hundreds of Davis County residents. These student and faculty volunteers epitomize the compassion and commitment to service that makes Roseman University a great place and learn and work. We’re proud of their ongoing efforts.
Finally, I’d like to close this month’s report offering congratulations to the College of Nursing’s BSN Class of 2021 that celebrated their Pinning Ceremony last month and the October 2019-2021 Cohort of the ABSN program celebrating their Pinning Ceremony this week. The 64 graduates of these classes are now prepared to take the NCLEX exam to become registered nurses and enter the healthcare workforce with confidence. I wish them the best of luck in their new careers.
