January Dean's Corner
Updates from MUSC College of Health Professions Dean Zoher F. Kapasi.
Dear CHP alumni and donors,
On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, I would like to thank each of you for your commitment and dedication to the college!
As you saw in last month’s issue, the new year is off to a great start here at CHP and we have many things to celebrate and new people to welcome. A new year is often associated with a fresh start and is the perfect time for us to reassess priorities and goals for the college. I have spoken a lot over the last year about our vision and updated you on our progress in reaching our strategic goals. And while we have made some tremendous progress, there is still much to be done. As a college, we remain committed to the initiatives outlined in our 2022 Strategic Plan. So, as we continue to move forward, I thought it important to remind us all of where we are heading in 2020 and beyond.
It is the MUSC College of Health Profession’s vision to improve the health of populations by developing and inspiring health scientists and leaders. This stems from an urgent need to address the societal crisis of chronic disease in America. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in two Americans lives with at least one chronic condition that consumes a significant amount of health care resources. To achieve our vision, our strategic plan outlines three priorities:
I hope you will join us as we work toward these initiatives. Now that our goals are clearly outlined, I’m pleased to share with you some of the things we have to celebrate this month at CHP.
I am so proud of what is being accomplished within our college and it could not be done without your support!
