Celebrating the Past and Charting the Future
50 Years of Educating Healthcare Professionals

It’s great to turn 50, isn’t it? During 2018, we celebrate the many achievements of the Lewis College during the past five decades. As a gerontologist myself, I have spent many of my academic years studying the process of aging. I have taken this research lens and looked at the Lewis College … and it’s both amazing and inspiring what has been accomplished! Starting as a School of Allied Health, we have become a vibrant and productive College of Nursing and Health Professions.

I hope that all of you take the time to read our history in our 50th-anniversary magazine – Celebrating the Past and Charting the Future, 50 Years of Educating Healthcare Professionals.In addition – think you know everything that there is about the Lewis College? Test yourself with our Lewis College Fun Facts!

However, we are already moving forward with our next 50 + years! As we celebrate our 50th anniversary year, we will have many opportunities to honor our successes. Our Development Director, Victoria Dorsey, and I will be visiting several clinical sites to reconnect with our alums in the workplace. All of our academic programs will have alum events as well, which will bring alums back to campus and connect with faculty. Please continue to look for the schedule of anniversary year events over the coming months.

Happy 50th anniversary, Lewis College! And many more…
