“We are fortunate to have Mercy Health Springfield Primary Care at Clark State,” said Wiley. “The clinic provides accessible primary health care for our students, faculty and staff on campus. As a CMHP board member and the dean of student engagement and support services at Clark State, I will have the unique opportunity to see first-hand how health care needs are being met on campus and share information with key players – really looking at the bigger picture of addressing health care needs across our community.”
Clark State President Dr. Jo Alice Blondin said she is proud to have Wiley representing the College as a board member for CMHP.
“Nina Wiley is dedicated to all aspects of student wellness and works tirelessly to help them overcome obstacles to meet their educational and personal needs,” said Blondin. “She will be diligent in maintaining a positive and successful partnership between Clark State, our new Mercy Primary Care Clinic, students and the community. I commend her on this accomplishment and know she will be welcomed by CMHP.”
Wiley said her goals as a member of the CMHP board include continuing to form partnerships with leaders in the community, building relationships with community members to better understand their needs, clearly articulate the advantage of Mercy Health in this competitive market and to participate in outreach efforts and education.
“I am proud to serve on the board to help carry out the mission and vision for Mercy Health,” she said. “I plan to be a visible board member in the community.”
