Esri President Jack Dangermond Given Royal Honor in Netherlands

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 maggio 2019

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced that its founder and president Jack Dangermond received the royal Dutch decoration, Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau. Jan Hamming, Mayor of Zaanstad, awarded the accolade to Dangermond on behalf of King Willem-Alexander. The decoration was bestowed upon Dangermond in recognition of his extraordinary contribution to the national and international GIS community. The establishment of Esri in 1969 paved the way for the introduction of digital mapping and analyses thanks to the development of ArcGIS software. In 1985, the Dutch national planning service (RPD) in the north-eastern city of Zwolle was the first to use ArcGIS, a milestone that was to be followed by more than a thousand other organizations.“The Netherlands have been a forward-thinking country in the field of GIS, and this recognition is a sincere honor,” said Laura Dangermond, Esri co-founder. “As one of our oldest international customers, Jack is proud to support the nation’s innovative goals.”
Alongside his involvement in making Dutch organizations more successful by sharing knowledge, Dangermond is also deeply committed to global social issues such as climate change, support for less developed regions around the world, and education.While it is unusual that a royal Dutch decoration is awarded to a person living abroad, Dangermond’s worldwide work and the special bond he has always maintained with The Netherlands is a distinctive combination. An American citizen, Dangermond’s family emigrated from The Netherlands to California, and some still live in The Netherlands.

Ross University School of Medicine and Tuskegee University Partner to Address Physician Diversity in the U.S.

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 maggio 2019

The United States is facing a critical absence of diversity in medicine, and the disproportionately low numbers of African-American doctors is causing negative health outcomes in communities across the country. Reflecting its commitment to improve diversity among the nation’s doctors, Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) has entered into an agreement with Tuskegee University in Alabama to increase the number of African-American students who enter medical school at RUSM, and ultimately become physicians. This educational pathway allows qualified Tuskegee students who earn full acceptance into the medical school to receive a scholarship covering full tuition for the first semester. These students will spend the first two years of medical school at the RUSM campus in Barbados.
RUSM has a diverse student population with 51 percent of students being persons of color. With more than 14,000 alumni, RUSM graduates practice in direct patient care in all 50 states, including a high percentage of graduates who are in the essential field of primary care. African Americans make up only six percent1 of U.S. physicians. While most U.S. medical schools had an average of eight African-American graduates this past year, RUSM had more than 80.
RUSM recently announced similar agreements with Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science. As part of its continued commitment to addressing diversity in medicine, RUSM’s parent company, Adtalem Global Education (NYSE: ATGE), signed on to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Partnership Challenge created by the Congressional Bipartisan HBCU Caucus, pledging to invest in creating strategic collaborations with HBCUs and working to increase diversity in key workforce sectors. Having recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, RUSM is part of Adtalem Global Education’s medical and healthcare education vertical, which also includes American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in Sint Maarten, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts, and Chamberlain University, the largest provider of nursing education in the United States. Adtalem is a mission-driven educator and workforce solutions provider with institutions and companies around the world, including the U.S., Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Brazil.
