ROCK HILL, S.C. - A new commitment of $200,000 from Agape Senior Services and company founder, Scott Middleton, Class of 1981, will support programming and curriculum for senior healthcare management education at Winthrop.

The Agape Senior Healthcare Management Endowed Fund will provide discretionary support for developing a healthcare management certificate program, supporting student and faculty professional development, and providing for initiatives which develop a long term care health care management track within the College of Business Administration’s healthcare management program.

Winthrop’s healthcare management program is a full member of the Association of University Programs in Health Services Administration (AUPHA) and the only undergraduate healthcare management program in South Carolina fully certified by AUPHA, a national recognition of the program’s excellence.

The interdisciplinary program prepares students who plan to seek management careers in a variety of health service organizations, including long-term facilities, hospitals, and outpatient management.

Middleton’s previous generosity at Winthrop has included the End of Life Fund to provide specific palliative care education and continuing education for the palliative care training within the master of social work program, as well as the 2006 establishment of the John Risher Brabham Endowment in memory of long-time Wesley Foundation director. The John Risher Brabham Endowment supports scholarships for students studying health care management.
