The administration at Cleveland College is pleased to announce that Dr. Karen Doyle has joined the College to direct the Master of Science in Health Promotion program on the Kansas City campus. The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools has approved the degree and the College will launch the new program in September with Doyle at the helm.
“Dr. Doyle’s extensive knowledge in worksite wellness and health promotion programs, coupled with years of experience in the field, qualifies her as an ideal choice to chair this new post,” President Carl S. Cleveland III said. “Everyone at the College joins me in welcoming Dr. Doyle and looks forward to her leadership of this new program.”
Prior to joining the staff at Cleveland, Doyle was the Health Promotions Coordinator at Western Missouri Medical Center in Warrensburg, Mo. In addition, she taught at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg for more than 10 years in the Department of Health and Human Performance. Doyle has a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology/Gerontology from the University of Kansas.
“Cleveland understands how the business of Health Promotion impacts lifestyles for a lifetime,” Doyle said. “I look forward to educating students and training leaders who will make healthy investments in the lives of others.”
In her role as director, Doyle will guide the new program through the preparatory stages preceding the launch, and then direct its progress through the inaugural class and beyond.
