Missions Align: Recognizing Our Veterans and Honoring Their Service to Others

I have had the privilege of serving many years on active duty in the US Army alongside the women and men of the various branches of the armed services and public health who chose to serve our country. As a member of the US Army, one of the most rewarding aspects of my job was providing help and care to people from all walks of life. This approach falls directly in line with the mission of Pacific Northwest University.    

I entered this military career because of a Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) when I was still an Osteopathic medical school student at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.  HPSP offers prospective military physicians (M.D. or D.O.), dentists, nurse practitioners, optometrists, psychologists, pharmacists, and veterinarians a paid medical education in exchange for service as a commissioned medical department officer. I was selected for Internal Medicine residency and Nuclear Medicine fellowship, and served with a dedicated staff who committed whole-heartedly to the mission of caring for service members and their loved ones no matter the place or circumstances.
