Saint Luke’s College Celebrates National Health Education and Medical Assistants Recognition Week, October 21-25

Across cultures, a door symbolizes the changing of life with opportunities that arise and disappear. Possibilities stacked on either side, waiting to be opened and entered. Saint Luke's College of Health Sciences student Charity Arnold walked into such an opportunity after a friend told her about the College’s medical assisting program. 

After working for nearly a decade as a cosmetologist learning about skin conditions, Arnold’s interest in health care continued to grow. Medical assisting was appealing because of the flexible hours that were more stable than cosmetology.

March is Women's History Month

In the United States, Women’s History Month traces its beginnings back to the first International Women’s Day in 1911. In February 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8, 1980, as National Women’s History Week.
Since 1988, U.S. presidents have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. If you have received a blood transfusion, radiation therapy, or experienced natural birth, you have benefitted from the many innovations created by women.
