Program Update

In an effort to keep you updated regarding changes occurring in your Health Administration Program, we will be sending you periodic updates. This note includes information about:

* Role Reversal
* Tell a Friend
* HA Blog

Role Reversal
On October 1st, John Pratt, Health Administration Program Director and Twila Weiszbrod, Assistant Program Director, will be exchanging roles. John has been the driving force behind our programs for many years. Twila fell in love with SJC when she was here as a student in 2000, returned as a faculty member in 2003 and became Assistant Program Director last year. John now sees an opportunity to focus his energy more on the long-term care arena and to have more flexibility with his time as he begins looking toward retirement sometime in the future. In this spirit John will become the Assistant Program Director/Long-Term Care Coordinator and Twila will assume the role of Program Director. While this is a big change, both of us are excited about it! With John still actively involved, you will not see major changes in the programs, but you will see continuity, continued quality and – given Twila’s creativity and energy – ongoing improvements.

Tell a Friend
We recently had an accreditation site visit. The only recommendation from our visitors is that we need to do more to get the word out about our excellent programs! We are hoping you can help us with that!! We have long known that our own students and alumni are our best ambassadors. If you know of anyone who would benefit from a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in health administration, a Bachelor’s degree in long-term care administration or radiologic science, or certificates and individual courses in these areas, please pass the following information on to them:

Saint Joseph’s College of Maine offers courses and degree programs in health administration, long-term care administration and radiologic science that combine the education you need to move your career forward with the flexibility to fit within your job and family commitments! The online format allows you to work on your courses at your own pace from anywhere in the world and the courses are grounded in real-world experience. Expand your career options!! Check out their web site at, or contact the College directly at

Other Suggestions
We value your opinions in these and other areas and would welcome any ideas or suggestions you have for making our HA programs the very best possible. Feel free to contact either of us by replying to this email.
