St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors on February 4, 1962, based on Danny's dream that "no child should die in the dawn of life." Since then, we’ve made incredible strides in childhood cancer research. We’ve helped improve the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80%. And ALL, the disease with a virtual death sentence in 1962, now has a survival rate of 94 percent.
Today, we’re a world leader in developing new, improved treatments for children with cancer, and we create more clinical trials for cancer than any other children's hospital. We freely share those breakthroughs, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
And still today as when we opened our doors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
Danny Thomas passed away in 1991, but he left us with an enduring legacy and commitment to saving the lives of children everywhere. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
Mr. Andrew Witt is a military member of our professional association who is incarcerated at The United States Disciplinary Barracks, located in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. IASHEP was first introduced to Mr. Witt by an instructor named Mr. Mitch Malone. At the time and before retirement he was working with military personnel incarcerated at The United States Disciplinary Barracks. Since IASHEP has members of our professional association who served in Vietnam and were not welcomed when we came home from war, our Board of Directors has elected not to ignore other generations of military veterans who have served in our Armed Forces. They were willing to die for our country and IASHEP can give them a hand up to obtain an education which can make a difference.
Many professional safety, health and environmental organizations will not allow a person who has a felony and are looking for an opportunity to redirect their lives to become a member. Because Mitch Malone believed in these soldiers and especially Mr. Witt IASHEP wishes to help others who want a chance to start over. We now know Andrew has taken advantage of the education originally offered by IASHEP. He is a special person who studies hard, passes all of the IASHEP examinations with top awards, He obtained his Associates Degree and has received a membership into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. IASHEP continues to be there for him and will be there for others who have served the military and who may not have money to pay for safety, health or environmental courses.
IASHEP is proud to announce that effective January 1, 2021, IASHEP has started the Andrew Witt Scholarship. This IASHEP scholarship will offer military personnel who are incarcerated in a military or correctional facility to receive a safety, health & envvironmental education. IASHEP will offer four scholarships per military veteran inmate per year for up to $895.00 per course to take IASHEP certified safety, health & environmental classes. This would equal to receiving 160 hours of certified and accredited professional education.
The correctional Institution must agree to allow an military veteran inmate to use a computer that is owned by the correctional insitution and on a secured internet line so the student can take the IASHEP online course. If this is not possible, then the correction institution must agree to the print student handouts for the military veteran inmate to use for their studies.
How can this type of education help correctionsal institutions manage their safety, health & environmental programs or help others who are being released back into the community to obtain gainful employment? Please give John F. (Jack) Podojil a call at (612) 801-1032.
IASHEP can and will teach long term inmates to become trainers in OSHA regulations in constrution, general industry, agriculural, and other industries and these skills can then be used inside the correctional institution to help educate others in the subjects of safety, health & environmental subjects. Once the other inmates are released and enter back into the community, they can potentially obtain meaningful work. Remember IASHEP believes that we are not here to be the judge of others but we are like the "Star Fish Thrower" helping one person at a time.
