The first day of nursing classes was celebrated by “Wearing Pink” in celebration of assistant professor Patricia Amado.
In March 2009 Amado was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer. Since the diagnosis, she has conquered surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
All the students and faculty wore pink to celebrate and support Amado’s return for spring semester. Professor Amado is very dear to each of us, and we continue to pray for continued health and wellness.
With “Race for the Cure” being literally around the corner, the school of nursing has registered a team.
Any student, staff or faculty that would like to join in celebrating and honoring those with breast cancer, see the 2010 Susan G. Komen South Florida Race for the Cure Web site and choose the Palm Beach Atlantic University School of Nursing team.
We look forward to partnering with the community to fight this disease that affects both men and women on Saturday, January 30.
Assistant Professor at the School of Nursing
