Health Information Management Program Receives Initial Accreditation

MILWAUKEE (March 5, 2013) – Herzing University Online announced today that it has earned programmatic accreditation for its Associate of Science in Health Information Management degree program from the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

 

Madison, Wisconsin -- His background is in police work and he teaches law enforcement, security and risk assessment at Herzing University – Madison. He is also the senior security manager at Covance Laboratories. Michael Ramstack, 39, has been named to this year’s “20 Under 40 List,” by Security Director News, an international news source for security professionals. Once per year, the publication recognizes “Up-and-coming” industry members.

“I don't view myself as being anything special, just someone who loves what he does and is committed to doing the best job he can,” Ramstack said. “I believe in hard work, dedication, and above all, an open and honest approach to my job. I am very honored and proud to have been recognized, it keeps me motivated and excited for my future.”

Ramstack’s enthusiasm about the security business can be traced back to his younger days.

“Security was always something I was interested in, going all the way back to my first job as a night security officer at a local resort while in college,” he said.

His next position as a loss prevention supervisor for a large retail chain added another dimension. A 13-year career as a police officer followed, but Ramstack did security surveillance consulting on the side.

“I began my law enforcement career, but never lost that interest,” he said.

Today Ramstack oversees security at one of Dane County’s largest employers. He loves being able to blend all of his previous experience into a fulfilling career.

“To move from the public sector into the private sector provided the opportunity to expand my experience to a corporate environment,” he said. “It provided exposure to a variety of experiences ranging from the security side as well as the business management side. I think the security professional gets a good mix of both and needs to learn how to balance both while accomplishing a good security program.”

Opportunities in the security field are plentiful, according to Ramstack, and he shares his devotion with his Herzing University students.

“I think it is critical to be able to base your conversations on real life experiences and examples versus just using information from a text book,” he said. “I attempt to bring in not only my own personnel experiences, but those things going on currently in the world and relate those to the topics we are currently discussing in class.”

TOLEDO, OH (Aug. 30, 2013) Two local schools have joined forces to help make finishing a GED more accessible. Herzing University – Toledo will begin offering weekend GED classes in partnership with the Penta Career Center Adult Education Dept.

GED classes will begin the weekend of September 14 –15 at the Herzing University – Toledo campus, 5212 Hill Ave. (Hill and Reynolds intersection). Saturday classes will run 9 a.m. to noon, while the Sunday classes will operate 1 to 4 p.m.

The partnership is a first-of-its-kind for the region, because no GED classes currently are offered on Sundays. The challenges of a work-school-family balance and other potential obstacles are discouraging many students from pursuing a GED, which affords them the opportunity for furthering their education. This initiative looks to remove some of those barriers, making students’ dreams to better their lives through education a reality.

“Education is the whole reason why we exist, so assisting with GED courses for teens and adults is a worthwhile mission—especially if it makes completing high school more attainable and accessible for a hard-to-reach community of people who may be working,” said Greg Guzman, president of Herzing University’s Toledo campus. “A weekend program of GED courses supplements the great work Penta does in the community at local libraries, The Source, and other locations.”

Debbie Morris, ABLE Coordinator at Penta, agrees the new program will help many adults, and the possibilities do not end there. "Penta's Adult Education Department is looking forward to this unique opportunity to partner with Herzing University. In addition to offering our GED/ABLE classes on site at Herzing, Penta Adult Education is also pursuing additional educational opportunities for our students with Herzing," said Morris.

Penta’s Adult Basic Education program is a student-centered learning opportunity for adults who desire to improve their learning and earning opportunities. The classes provide adult learners an opportunity to improve reading, writing and math skills in preparation to take the Official GED Test. Classes are held two days per week for three hours each day. Registration is required and orientation is mandatory.

            Those interested in learning about obtaining a GED should contact Herzing University – Toledo at 419.776.0300 or the Penta Career Center Adult Education program at 419.661.6555.

Herzing University student Jermaine Baker recognizes the detrimental affect drugs and alcohol can make on a person’s life, and he is determined to help keep as many children and adults as possible from falling into a path of self-destruction.

To bring awareness to his East Toledo community, Baker and his neighbor joined forces to organize “Addicted to Change,” an event with games, food, and friendship all in the name of confronting the issue and fostering a neighborhood bond. Over 60 people enjoyed games, barbecue food, and raffle prizes such as tickets to Walleyes and Tigers games. Local business helped to fund the event. Pamphlets about confronting drug and alcohol abuse were also distributed. Read the full article
