Exciting things are happening on the Summerlin campus. Since joining Roseman University in June, I’ve had the pleasure to get to know the many people who make Roseman a great place to work, collaborate and build. I, along with an outstanding team of medical educators, am extremely optimistic about the future medical school taking shape on this campus. Roseman’s Board of Trustees, administration and campus communities share in this enthusiasm and in our goal to create a truly one-of-a-kind College of Medicine that will improve the lives not only of those living in Clark County, but also of individuals and households living throughout the state of Nevada.
Over the past few months, we’ve had the opportunity to meet with people from all facets of the Las Vegas community. From hospital systems and technology companies to community-focused non-profits, these organizations are doing outstanding work in our communities and I’m excited about the possibility of collaboration as we move forward with a community-dependent approach that stresses interdependence and a symbiotic relationship between the college and our community – we can only succeed working together. Our foundation will be built on leveraging the inherent strengths of the Las Vegas community to reduce the impacts the social determinants of health are having on Nevada’s communities and population. In doing so, we have the opportunity to improve health outcomes for all people.
If you’d like to learn more about the individuals who make up the College of Medicine team and our plans for the College of Medicine, I invite you to read the latest issue of Roseman University’s spectRUm magazine HERE.
