SAHP students awarded development funds for E-Learning modules

Five students from three allied health programs were honored today as E-learning Student Awardees at a luncheon ceremony. Students submitted proposals to the E-Learning Program for Students for the development of E-Learning modules to be used primarily to supplement learning in UNMC classes. Funding for the modules was awarded from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

Hold your breath

page from journal“Hold your breath” is the English translation for the Journal of the Norwegian Society of Radiographers, Hold Pusten. That’s what radiographers tell you to do when they position you for an X-ray.

James Temme, MPA, RT(R)(QM), associate director of radiation science technology education (RSTE), and Charles R. O’Malley Endowed Chair, was featured in an interview article in the journal after he presented last year at the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT) World Congress in Helsinki, Finland, about his work in Haiti following the earthquake.

Using Google Translate, I was able to read the article, which begins:

“There were several American victims in the Haiti earthquake. US authorities, therefore, sent a delegation to Port au Prince to identify American victims. Radiographer James Temme was one of those who went, and in a post on ISRRT he told about the experience.” Full article>>
