About the Theme
The Apollo theme was developed to meet the Forward Together initiative’s goal of building a common framework to represent the unique collaboration between our health system and colleges encompassing major health professions on multiple campuses. With an integrated global header and footer, Apollo allows visitors to find resources and information about all of our core missions quickly, regardless of which site they may land on.
Built for the WordPress content management system, Apollo’s easy-to-use features will help you break down the barriers between you and your audiences, making it easier to communicate with the outside world. Apollo can accommodate sites as advanced as a college website, or as simple as a student group blog. Best of all, we host the software and the theme for you, so there is nothing for you to install or configure.
