COHS takes the field! Boise State online health programs get big-time, half-time spotlight

College of Health Sciences leadership in online programs on the Blue turf

College of Health Sciences faculty, students and graduates are in on the secret, that a COHS education sets Broncos up for life.

With the Boise State Sept. 9 game, the first home football event of the season, the secret was out — in front of a sold-out stadium full of hundreds of current and future Broncos and supporters.

“It’s a recognition from the university that the college is leading the state in online healthcare education,” Associate Dean Lutana Haan said.

Home games this year will feature some of Boise State’s most successful programs and initiatives. Leading the charge with the first half-time feature appearance? COHS’ online programs.

Faculty members and program heads rocked their Bronco best and headed for the Blue Turf for a moment of recognition; COHS offers 11 fully online degree programs, and being Idaho’s foremost provider of online healthcare education, enrolling more health sciences students online than any other higher education institution, gave the College of Health Sciences team and the crowd lots to celebrate.

“The feedback was really great,” Haan said. “People loved having the chance to stop by, and the program coordinators just loved the recognition.

“It really drew people who don’t always attend the games, which was really cool.”
Between the half-time fun in the early fall sun and the jointly sponsored tailgate attended by many COHS alumni and donors, it was a winning day for healthcare education and health professionals and would-be professionals.

Go COHS and go Broncos!
