Instructor elected to VNA Board
Penn State Wilkes-Barre business department faculty member Ms. Terry Clemente has been elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Visiting Nurses Association.
According to Clemente, “It’s a great organization that will be celebrating their 100 Year Anniversary in 2008. Professionally, Clemente is no stranger to service- based organizations. She has been a marketing consultant for the Downtown Collegetown Initiative, a community-based revitalization program for the city of Wilkes-Barre. Additionally, Clemente has held numerous, high profile, marketing positions with top-level firms located in the Philadelphia area. “It’s a pleasure to be part of the VNA. The nurses and therapists are the humble heroes who go beyond the call of duty,” said Clemente.
With headquarters locally in Kingston, the Visiting Nurses Association provides care for patients of all ages from infants to the elderly. They offer comprehensive services that begin with maternal/child health programs, and end with hospice care. The Visiting Nurses Association offers a broad range of essential home health care and support services to patients in the security and comfort of their homes.
A long-time business professor, Clemente began her teaching career in the Greater Wilkes-Barre area in 1981. She holds a MBA from St. Joseph’s University, and is currently a full-time instructor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.
