Radford University announced Teresa Ann Conner will be the school’s inaugural provost for health sciences.
The position was created to help manage the growing medical program at the university, according to school spokeswoman Caitlyn Scaggs. The university opened Radford University Carilion in Roanoke this year after merging with Jefferson College of Health Sciences.
Conner will work primarily in the Waldron College of Health and Human Services in Radford but will divide time between the main campus and newly formed Radford University Carilion, according to a news release. Scaggs said Conner will “provide critical leadership for the academic enterprise of our robust health sciences portfolio.”
