TWU Offers Little Chapel Wedding Package
TWU’s Ward Receives
DENTON — Dr.
Susan Ward, professor of health studies at Texas Woman’s University,
is the recipient of the 2003 Distinguished Service Award from Eta
Sigma Gamma, the National Health Education Honorary. The award is
presented to a person or persons in recognition of outstanding services
to furthering the goals of the organization.
Dr. Ward began her career
as a nurse but decided she wanted to help people stay healthy rather
than care for them in illness. She taught health to seventh and
eighth graders in Wyoming while overseeing the school district’s
nurses, and later worked with various school district health promotion
activities in Virginia.
After completing her
Ph.D. in health education, Dr. Ward came to TWU in 1990. She has
been involved in many wellness programs in the Denton community,
including one for local senior citizens. She also developed a ropes
course —a physically challenging program used for team and
self-confidence building — at TWU.
Her current research
includes evaluating breast cancer screening techniques, including
a computer-assisted mammographic reader.
