University of Mary to name School of Health Sciences after saint

{{featured_button_text}}

The University of Mary plans to name its School of Health Sciences after Saint Gianna Beretta Molla.

Molla was an Italian pediatrician who is known for putting her own life at risk to preserve her unborn daughter's life. She died a week after the baby was born. Pope John Paul canonized her as a saint in 2004. 

The naming of the School of Health Sciences in honor of Molla will happen once funds are raised for the school at the private Catholic university in Bismarck.
