“Our College of Health Sciences is experiencing explosive growth,” JU President Tim Cost said.
Future health care education expansion at the private university by 2016 includes a master’s degree program in health information management, a master’s in health executive leadership and a master’s in occupational therapy.
“We are rocking and rolling at JU,” said Sapienza.
She said speech pathology is “one of the most important arms of rehabilitation” and there are opportunities in the field from pediatrics to geriatrics.
Sapienza said the need for qualified speech pathologists is expected to continue to grow. JU’s expansion of its health care curriculum is a response to the projected increased need for qualified professionals.
“There is a shortage of speech pathologists in the country, in the region and in this county,” she said.
September 28, 2013: Dr. Christine Sapienza and Sharon Dr. DiFino, JU speech pathology faculty and guests of JU President Tim Cost attend FinFest 2013 on the River in support of the Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center's annual fundraiser. This tropical-themed, casually-festive event was a special evening held at the Timuquana Country Club - all for a wonderful cause: to benefit the children, adults and seniors in Northeast Florida who are in need of speech, language and/or hearing needs. Go Dolphins for supporting such a wonderful event and recognizing the tremendous efforts of Jacksonville Speech and Hearing Center.
