SCU President John Scaringe, DC, EdD addressed the MSMS Class of 2022 during the awards presentation. “The MSMS Program is a very important piece of our vision to transform and redefine health and healthcare education through whole-person, integrative healthcare teams. Many of you will continue in healthcare disciplines that SCU does not offer at this time. So you are an important link to our mission, which includes a diverse workforce and patient access to high-quality healthcare. I wish you continued success!”  

Congratulations, MSMS Class of 2022!
