My own experience confirms my belief in the importance of education and lifelong learning. I know what it's like to take courses online and to make sacrifices to devote myself to my studies. But I also know the kind of opportunities education opens up.

After 27 years spent working with the most vulnerable of patients as a pediatric nutritionist with the UVA Health System, Ana decided to pursue her lifelong goal of teaching. She earned her doctorate part-time in higher education and adult learning, and is now program director and assistant professor for the Bachelor of Professional Studies in the Health Sciences Management and Certificate in Health Sciences Management programs.
