At a time when demand for nurses and other health care professionals is high and only continuing to increase, Hood College in Frederick has announced plans to establish a school for behavioral and health sciences, growing its footprint in the health care field. The Ruth Whitaker Holmes School of Behavioral and Health Sciences will be funded by a multimillion-dollar donation by its namesake, Ruth Whitaker Holmes, an alumna of the college, a former member of the Hood College Board of Trustees and a retired faculty member at Framingham State College in Massachusetts.
