A Tribute to Dr. Susan Mills

dr__mills.jpg
Dr. Susan Mills, a faculty member of Widener University, suddenly passed away on November 4th, 2018. Dr. Mills was a past president of Eta Beta, and was currently serving on the board as secretary. The Widener University community and Eta Beta continue to mourn her loss. Dr. Mills was loved by her faculty colleagues and all of her students. Dr. Mills had more than two decades of experience in Pediatric nursing and continued her love for teaching pediatrics to Widener students. Thank you Dr. Mills for all of you have done. You will live on in our hearts forever.
