The Eastern Shore Area Health Education Center (ESAHEC) welcomes Brendon Morse who is completing his last semester at Salisbury University with a Bachelor of Science in information systems. With the assistance of the ABLE program, ESAHEC was able to partner with SU’s nationally accredited Perdue School of Business to provide a senior capstone internship experience. This spring, Morse will be working to improve and update ESAHEC’s technology through many platforms, including web analytics, social media, site updating and maintenance, and with its eLearning application. The use of technology in delivering programs and services to such a large geographic region and in efficient and effective ways make this partnership especially important to the success of the ESAHEC.

Morse related that when he arrived at the ESAHEC he was unsure of what to expect. He went on to say: “But after just the interview I knew it was going to be a great experience. The staff of ESAHEC was extremely welcoming, friendly and displayed a strong desire to achieve the organization’s mission and goals. I am glad and honored to be working alongside such driven people and hope I can do my part to help improve the organization in whatever ways I can.”

The ESAHEC is grateful to have the talents of this young professional.
