WSU leaders provided an update on where the university is at in its pursuit of a medical school in Spokane today, releasing the names of those on the Founding Dean Search Committee.
On her first day as the retired Dean of the WSU College of Nursing, Patricia Butterfield received an invitation from the White House to participate in a roundtable discussion on climate change and public health.
Under Butterfield’s leadership, the College of Nursing has had a focus on environmental health.
“As a public health nurse, I am pleased to see that the discussion around climate change has been connected to public health, and that our government recognizes the importance of this,” she said in a WSU news release. “If we aren’t taking care of the environment, we are not taking care of ourselves.”
The roundtable discussion took place last week in Washington D.C.
