Salisbury University is creating a new unit called the College of Health and Human Services.
It is meant to streamline and create more collaboration for its health programs.
Interim University Provost Karen Olmstead says, “It’s no surprise that health and social service programs are growing for the wellbeing of our citizens of our region, of our state, of our nation. And of course to our economy.”
It is combines the schools of Health Science, Nursing and Social Work.
The effort is aimed at meeting demands ranging from the opioid epidemic and the aging Boomer generation to rural health care and the workforce.
