College expresses appreciation to donors
College of Health Professions Dean Suzanne Mellon recently hosted a lunch thanking a number of major donors to the new Health Professions facility, with guests including representatives from several health systems and a local foundation. Joseph Swedish, new president and CEO of Trinity Health, and Sr. Catherine DeClercq, O.P., vice president, Governance and Sponsorship, were especially pleased to see the Trinity Health Distance Learning Classroom. “We were impressed with the new accommodations to enhance learning on several levels,” says Swedish. “We are pleased that the long distance learning lab is associated with Trinity Health.”
Nancy Schlicting, president and CEO of Henry Ford Health System, attended with Anthony Armada, president and CEO of Henry Ford Hospital; both were equally pleased with their investment in the Human Anatomy Lab, named in their honor. Donald Miller, trustee of the James and Lynelle Holden Fund, also expressed his pleasure with the Alumni Board Room, named for the Holden Fund.
University of Detroit Mercy President Gerard L. Stockhausen, S.J., Ph.D., expressed his gratitude on behalf of the University to all who invested in the College of Health Professions.
Although the building is open for classes, fund raising continues. “We are honored and grateful to all who have made gifts in support of the College of Health Professions,” says Development Director Enid Grauer. “It is not too late for others to be part of this endeavor. The new facility offers a unique opportunity to make a difference for current and future students and faculty, and is an investment in future health professionals.”
