On June 9, 2014, the leadership of the School of Health Professions at Andrews University visited four hospitals in the Adventist Health Systems Midwest Region: Hinsdale Hospital, La Grange Hospital, Bolingbrook Hospital, and Glen Oaks Hospital. Two months earlier, the leadership of those hospitals had visited the five departments of the School: Medical Laboratory Sciences; Nursing, Physical Therapy, Public Health, Nutrition and Wellness, and Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
The aim of those visits is to shore up existing patnerships and create capacity for more clinical sites for students. Currently, AU School of Health Professions has over 200 clinical sites in more than 20 states.

The School of Health Professions (SHP) Club has had two vespers programs so far this year, one that was led by faculty and staff and one that was entirely student led. The first vespers, held in September, was held in PMC Commons where SHP club members enjoyed a delicious haystack dinner and the company of their classmates. The club members also brainstormed ways they can be more active in the community and use the skills they are learning in class to be of service. The second vespers was held in January in Dining Services and club members led the program through singing and speaking. It certainly is a great experience to come together as a group of future health professionals and praise God for all of the gifts and talents He has given us.
