The SON’s core commitments include: 1) creating innovative models of education and practice, and 2) cultivating environments where our values of respect and honor, relationships and collaboration, recognition and celebration, and excellence are upheld and promulgated.  Central to our SON’s mission is the goal of promoting and providing optimal health and compassionate care to individuals and groups by fostering dissemination and application of knowledge from nursing and other professions into interdisciplinary practice.

The mission of the Public Health Program within the Department of Health Studies of American University is to prepare students to pursue professional endeavors dedicated to protecting and promoting the health of entire populations informed by a social justice approach.  These populations can be as small as a local neighborhood or as large as an entire country or region of the world.

It is timed with the commercial kick-off the holiday season and is intended to inspire people to collaborate on improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

Less Cancer’s work to raise awareness about health and environment spans a wide range of issues, including specific contaminants, pollution sources, and healthy lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise, and nutrition. While we work to protect all communities, our approach is particularly relevant to at-risk populations, such as families and children in low-income communities. Our ultimate goal is to raise awareness of prevention and reduce incidences of diagnosed cancer in all people.
