The College of Allied Health at California Baptist University hosted a campus reception with Riverside’s health care and buisness leaders. There is a growing market for healthcare professionals and CBU President Ronald L. Ellis explained that it was “an opportunity that fits well with CBU’s mission of developing service-oriented graduates.” The campus reception was held to “create community partnerships with the university’s growing program” according to a press release from April 6.
