Sullivan University Launching Associates Degree in Community Health Services

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Sullivan University has recently developed an associate of science (A.S.) degree in community health services and enrollment is expected to begin in the fall of 2019.

“Community health services are about bringing health-related programs and education directly to individuals and groups,” said Anthony Piña, Ed.D., associate provost for Instruction and Online Learning at Sullivan University. “It is a program that will promote general health awareness and help people maintain healthier lifestyles.”

Sullivan has also announced a new community health services articulation agreement with Eastern Kentucky-based Addiction Recovery Care, Inc., (ARC). ARC operates a network of state-licensed residential and outpatient drug and alcohol abuse treatment centers throughout eastern Kentucky.

The agreement allows for graduates of the ARC Peer Support Specialist Academy to be awarded undergraduate elective credit that can be transferred into the community health services A.S. program, which is nearly one-third of the total credit hours for the new degree. The credits can also be applied toward bachelor’s degrees offered by Sullivan.
