Sacred Heart University’s College of Nursing and St. Vincent's Medical Center will host “Living Well Through Illness: Charting a Patient-Centered Voyage,” a palliative care conference, on Saturday, Nov. 11. Geared for patients, families, caregivers, health-care providers and the public at large, it will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at SHU’s Frank and Marissa Martire Business & Communications Center.
Sacred Heart University has unveiled its new Center for Healthcare Education at 4000 Park Ave., Bridgeport, where students already are accessing the latest technology and modern features the facilty offers. One great advantage of the new center is the ability of faculty and students to offer multi-professional clinics that will expose students and patients alike to a collaborative, holistic approach to services for everyone from children to the elderly. Disciplines that will collaborate in patient services include athletic training, exercise science, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistants and speech-language pathology.
Sacred Heart University’s largest incoming class to date received a warm welcome at the University’s annual New Student Convocation ceremony. The 1,420 freshmen and 144 transfer students ascended the hill by Curtis Hall to the sounds of the marching band and entered the William H. Pitt Center, where administrators, deans, professors and upperclassmen awaited them.
