Ponce, Puerto Rico (PRUnderground) September 22nd, 2017

Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU) in Ponce, Puerto Rico has launched a new website that will feature news for its faculty and students, and their families in Puerto Rico and the United States.  The site – which is http://phsuhurricanemariaupdates.com – was created due to extensive damage that was caused by Hurricane Maria to the school’s DNS and telecommunications servers.

The new site will include information for – and updates from – students and staff, as well as additional details regarding such topics as:

  • potential plane transportation from the Island to the US mainland
  • medical care resources
  • airport and road accessibility
  • status of communication options
  • meeting places for students and staff in Ponce

… and other developments of importance.

“We’re working diligently to maintain the health and well-being of all of our students, and also to ensure that they’re able to continue their education,” says Dr. David Lenihan, President and CEO of Ponce Health Sciences University.  “Our new site will be a resource for everyone who has questions about what our administration is doing to support our faculty and students as they navigate the difficult road forward following the devastation that was caused by Hurricane Maria.  It will be a challenging journey, but our strength and determination will help us to prevail.”

For questions regarding PHSU’s site and news for its faculty and students, contact Dr. Lenihan at davidvlenihan@gmail.com.
