A health care entrepreneurship course will be offered at Wichita State University in the fall, a result of three faculty members having received a Coleman Foundation Entrepreneurship Fellowship.
College of Health Professions faculty members Ngoyi Bukonda, Toni Pickard and Ron Stephen developed the course to answer student demand for acquiring skills to develop health care business ideas. The course is designed to help students who are interested in testing out business ideas in the health field.
"There is a need for entrepreneurs in health care to act as change agents," said Richard Muma, WSU chair and professor in WSU's Department of Public Health Sciences.
The course will begin in the fall on the WSU main campus.
