Good morning, and welcome to the College of Health Solutions. My name is Deborah Helitzer. I am your Dean and I am so excited that you have chosen to be a student at the College of Health Solutions. I believe that health is the most important area of life. Without good health we cannot accomplish our goals, take care of our families or be good citizens. I know that the reason you picked this area of focus is because you want to make an impact on the world we live in. When you graduate from the College of Health Solutions, there are many different careers that you will be able to choose from, but right now your job is to figure out where your passion lies for helping people to stay healthy. Every one of us has experience with health and with illness in some way. Many of us know what it’s like to be healthy. We are happy and we have the strength and energy to accomplish our goals. Most of us also know someone with a chronic disease like diabetes or cancer. You can bring this experience to your college education and consider how your understanding of health and wellness affects your interests and your passions. By being a part of our College you can help us find solutions for health. Our team of wonderful faculty and staff are here to help you along your journey. Please reach out to any of us at any time. Your fellow students will also be a great source of information and support. And don’t be shy reach out to me. Come by my office to say hi. Send me an email. Feel free to come up and say hi when you see me at events or at your Chill ‘n’ Chats. Parents, if you’re like me, you want to be sure that your child’s education prepares them for their future. I know I’m biased, but I think your children have picked the best college to attend. Once they graduate, not only will they enjoy their work, but they will be able to choose from multiple types of jobs. Health is the fastest growing sector in the US. In 2016, the business of health created more jobs than any other sector. Thank you so much for joining us to be part of the solution. I look forward to accompanying you on your journey.
