Congratulations to Anthoni Cgnasi, on receiving his Doctor of Pharmacy from Texas Tech University class of 2018. Anthoni received his BS in Biology and Minor in Chemistry in 2014 from New Mexico Highlands University.

Molly Enenbach, class of '16, worked with Dr. Dick Greene, former NMHU professor and current Jefferson Science Fellow, and two other students to demonstrate the power of point of care ultrasound to attendees, medical students, and physicians in hospitals and clinics in Namibia.
They gave presentations of how ultrasound works, the incredible application, and the power POCUS gives individuals to improve bedside diagnosis.
They worked with the University of Namibia School of Medicine to put on an ultrasound workshop, working with the university to encourage Namibian medical students and doctors to advocate for an ultrasound training facility and program in their clinical education and practice.
During their time, they went with the physicians in the hospitals, using ultrasound to aid in diagnosis of many patients. Molly says: "Working in Namibia was an honor and a humbling experience, showing me how incredibly dedicated the physicians and medicals students are in Namibia."

Be an Enrollment Ambassador!

Enrollment Ambassadors play an integral role in NMHU’s recruitment, admissions, and in getting students to come to Highlands. From reaching out to potential applicants at college fairs and high schools to attending admitted student events, there are a number of ways to get involved.

If you’re short on time or live in a less populated area, our new call out initiative can be completed with basic phone and internet service. It will take a couple hours of your time and is as easy as making some phone calls and sending your report to NMHU. We will provide you a training manual and key NMHU facts to ensure your calls are successful. Your work will have a positive enrollment impact moving into the 2018 academic year.
