A ceremony to honor UNMC Distinguished Scientists will take place this afternoon. Among those being recognized is Patricia Hageman, PT, PhD, faculty member in our physical therapy education program. Dr. Hageman is the first ever recipient from the School of Allied Health Professions.
The Distinguished Scientist award — which is sponsored by the chancellor — recognizes researchers who have been among the most productive scientists in the country during the past five years.
Congratulations to Dr. Hageman on this significant achievement!
In case you missed it, our own Pat Hageman was honored as a Distinguished Scientist! Read about her in UNMC Today, today.
Maggie Winnicki made a presentation at the AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers) meeting in San Francisco April 11-13, 2013. She received glowing compliments from her colleagues for her presentation, “Breaking Down the Silos in Health Professions Schools.” Well done, Maggie!
We love to celebrate the new arrivals in our allied health extended family. Jan Tompkins, director of the SAHP Academic and Student Affairs, welcomes a new grandson: Brenden Scott Lisius, born April 17, 2013 2:08 PM 8 lb 8 oz, 21 inches. Maybe he’ll be a student here someday.
Corri Hanson’s manuscript, “Diet and Vitamin D as Risk Factors for Lung Impairment and COPD,” was excepted for publication in Translational Research. Her paper relates to the work she did last summer and the collaboration she developed while training at Maastricht University Medical Center in Maastricht, the Netherlands. It will be part of a COPD review journal that will be published later this year.
Congratulations, Dr. Hanson!
The SAHP and RSTE would like to recognize Christina Araujo for being selected to the 2013 Leadership Academy, which was held in New Orleans, LA. The academy was a two-day course with an assemblage of current Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) leadership, focusing on key members of the SNMMI, and SNMMI staff who have dedicated themselves to improving SNMMI achievement in the Nuclear Medicine and related fields.
Lectures integrated team building exercises and enhanced networking opportunities. Each lecture incorporated different aspects of leadership and was led by technologists or keynote speakers with an intimate knowledge of the subject. The overall goal was to assemble a group of SNMMI leaders who understand the crucial role of leadership development and who are eager to begin the path to SNMMI leadership and organizational success.
