Turning Data into Information


By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA


As reported on this ME-P and elsewhere, I was recently in Philadelphia for a number of reasons and had the opportunity to stop by Drexel University to get some information on their nursing program. There, I learned that it is one of the nation’s top nursing schools.

In fact, Drexel University is ranked one of “America’s BEST Colleges 2011” by U.S.News & World Report. I also learned the following about breast cancer:

    Enough already! Put the money where it will do most good. Don’t more folks die in auto accidents each year than breast cancer? And, that’s totally preventable.
