We see the evolution and the shift of the university in and around the 1950s, when we first got started getting involved in nursing. As a result of that, I think for the past almost 70 years, Winston Salem State University has been critical to the overall workforce in terms of the health industry in this region. And certainly expanding throughout the state and the system. We can't educate enough nurses. So I think we'll make A considerable impact in terms of the health field and health related industries in this state. We continue to do that by being also innovative in some of our programs. We also one of the few HBCU programs that have a PhD and Doctorate of Physical Therapy. And that's important for us in terms of our graduate program. Our motto, if you go around the university and you ask students what is WSSU motto, most students will blurt it out: Enter to Learn and Depart toServe. And that's been a key driver almost around every single thing that we do.
Health care is a tremendous need. But you don't get a lot of people who are going into some of these hard to reach communities. Winston Salem State University has made a commitment that that's how we're going to educate our students. So when someone applies to Winston Salem State University, if they're coming into one of our health related majors, they know that a key part of that is service. And a key part of that is community service and giving back. Our nurses, doctor of physical therapist, they get involved in the community almost from day one, going into them and giving back to the community. We here Winston Salem State University believe that we make our greatest impact in this area. We are one of the only HBCUs in the country with a mobile health clinic. And now I tell people, we were the only one that had one now we have two and that's important in terms of how we educate and how we train, but how we give back to the community and as they do medical screenings and health screenings, and invariably, we find someone who is suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol level. These screenings now give folks information that they can use to go back and hopefully get high quality health care. So we think we're making a big difference in that arena.
