This month saw a world changing achievement by the School of Health and Human Services (SHHS). After nearly two years of work and collaboration, the school became the first in the nation to earn the Planetree designation. Heralded around the world for starting and sustaining a unique model of patient centered care, the Planetree organization has been helping hospitals put patients first. Now National University has paved the way for universities to have the same principles by being the first to bring this approach to academia.
