Anne Constantino, Director of Student Affairs in the School of Allied Health Professions, is leaving the SAHP to work for the NU Foundation as of September 30, 2011. She joined the School in December 2008 and developed the Office of Student Affairs. Under her direction, the SAHP centralized the admission processes for all of our programs, increasing efficiency as the number of applications has risen. Anne has been instrumental in implementing the new student information system (NeSIS), and she has directed several new events in the school, including Backstage Pass, the SAHP Fun Run, and the all-school Professionalism Ceremony. These are key engagement events that have served to elevate awareness of the SAHP on campus and in the community. Thank you, Anne, and good luck in your new role.
Jack Turman, Jr., PhD, PT, Director of Physical Therapy Education in the School of Allied Health Professions will be presenting at the UNMC Science Café next Tuesday, August 3rd.
Dr. Turman’s research involves the study of environmental determinants of feeding behavior, in preterm infants and the effects of nutritional interventions on brain and behavior development.
His presentation, “Arriving Early: The Problem of Preterm Birth in the USA,” will be from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at The Slowdown (729 No. 14th Street). If you are available please join me in support of Dr. Turman.

Sue Prusia, Fiscal and Budget Associate in the SAHP, was a guest yesterday at the Chancellor’s Silver “U” luncheon. Sue, who has been employed at the SAHP for ten years, was honored as a three-time recipient of the Chancellor’s Silver “U” award.
The Silver “U” award is given to acknowledge employees “who provide consistent performance that exceeds expectations or for other special achievements.”
Since the inception of the reward and recognition program in 1999, 1000 employees have been one-time recipients of the Silver “U” award, 102 employees have been two-time recipients, and only four (including our own Sue Prusia) have been three-time recipients.
Please join me in congratulating Sue on her outstanding achievement.
