Maternal and Child Health Expert Dr. Charles Mahan Delivers FNU Commencement Address
HYDEN, KY – With nearly 1,000 attendees at Frontier Nursing University’s annual commencement ceremony, all had the opportunity to hear maternal and child health expert Dr. Charles S. Mahan present the commencement address. His message is inspiring to the more than 500 new advanced practice nurses and midwives entering the work force as graduates of FNU over the past year. Those who attended the ceremony heard the message loud and clear. “As you walk out of this ceremony, I would like you to seize THIS day and EVERY day for the rest of your lives – to help move our country from near the bottom of all developed nations to the top in the health and safety of babies, children and families.” Dr. Mahan shared tips for seizing the day as he expressed his firm stance that nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners will help to fill the primary health care gap.
