At JIU we have a passionately-held belief that the opportunity to receive a great education should be available to everyone, everywhere, no matter their circumstances.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Jones International University®, Ltd. (JIU®) today announced that it has sponsored the production of a new promotional video for the Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Medical Day Treatment Program (MDT). The video, produced by Deren P. Abram, owner of Film Pharm Productions, promotes the important work of the Medical Day Treatment Program as they provide a normalized education experience for students with chronic medical conditions. MDT is a school-based treatment program that allows kids to attend school while also managing their medical needs. Children’s Colorado has been providing specialized pediatric healthcare to children in the Rocky Mountain region for more than a century.
“Children’s Hospital Colorado is fortunate to count Jones International University among its partners,” said Monique McCoy senior communication manager at Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation. “The great people of JIU have been very generous with their support over the years, but most recently they underwrote a video project to showcase our Medical Day Treatment program. This touching video shares a unique aspect of our care with the community and we’re so fortunate that JIU found it to be a worthy undertaking.”
The Medical Day Treatment Program was initiated in the fall of 1991. This unique program is a collaborative venture between the Children's Hospital Colorado and Aurora Public Schools. The program provides an educational placement alternative for children whose needs are too complicated to allow them to attend regular school. Children are able to continue to meet school expectations in an environment that provides the medical and emotional interventions they need daily.
“All of us at JIU are honored to support the Medical Day Treatment Program and Children’s Colorado with this exciting video project,” stated JIU Chancellor Dr. Milt Goldberg. “At JIU we have a passionately-held belief that the opportunity to receive a great education should be available to everyone, everywhere, no matter their circumstances. The Medical Day Treatment Program provides an important educational resource to the many kids who are managing serious health issues while they work to continue their education.”
