It’s been a whirlwind of activity since joining Touro University Western Division as the CEO & Senior Provost in January. I continue to enjoy meeting faculty, students and the many supporters of Touro.
I’ve frequently stated that Touro University Nevada is one of the best kept secrets in the state of Nevada. My goal is to ensure that this gem is no longer a secret. I’ve been telling everyone who will listen what a valuable resource that Touro University Nevada has been for ten years already and that we will be making even greater impacts on healthcare and education in the community for years to come.
I’ve been so impressed with our students who volunteer their limited spare time to many community organizations, events and causes. From the physical therapy students who volunteer as coaches of Special Olympic teams to the physician assistant students who started Yellow Dot, a program that alerts first responders to medical information in the glove box of a vehicle to the medical student who is the first D.O. student to be elected to the office of National President for the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, our students are committed and involved with the Southern Nevada community and beyond.
I am also excited to announce the launch of the new Western Division website where you can find more information about myself, the role of Touro University Western Division and how to request a meeting. I encourage everyone to learn more about both of the campuses that I have the privilege to lead.
I look forward to meeting more Touro family and growing this amazing institution.
