This year, Western University of Health Sciences celebrates its 30th

Anniversary year. The University took this opportunity to also celebrate

30 years of building relationships with the local community and other

related professional organizations. This week, the University hosted

the “”Community Partners Luncheon,”” which provided a special opportunity

to acknowledge its committed and valued partners, as well as the WesternU

Board of Trustees.

“”As you all know, partnerships are essential,”” said Dr. Philip Pumerantz,

founding president of WesternU, as he addressed the community partners at

the luncheon held in their honor. “”They work to help, not only one

organization to achieve its goals, but the partners of that organization

are also enabled to achieve their goals as well. I hope you all know,

just how much our relationships have meant to WesternU over the years.

You all have had a hand in our success and the success of our students.””

The event was an excellent way to personally recognize all of the

University’s partners. Each organization or individual received a

certificate of appreciation for their continued support of WesternU. The

list of the community partners that were recognized is as follows:
