CLS students to present poster at national conference

Congratulations to Natalie Harmon and Megan Gunderson!

Their abstract, “An Interprofessional Guide to Laboratory Testing for Student Run Free Clinics: Reference Guide to Sexually Transmitted Infection Diagnostics and Monitoring,” was accepted for a poster presentation at the Society of Student-Run Free Clinics (SSRFC) conference to be held Feb 7-8, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Natalie and Megan will be developing a reference guide, which will include explanations of frequently utilized diagnostic tests for STIs.  The intent of this project is to foster interprofessional knowledge and communication between professions and within the clinics.

Nicely done, Natalie and Megan!

We’re almost there…

Thank you to those SAHP faculty and staff who have already participated in this year’s United Way campaign. As of yesterday morning, the SAHP was leading the way on campus with 89% participation, and that’s awesome! We want to be even awesomer, however, by hitting 100% participation again for the third year in a row.

“Going for a 3-peat!” said Geri Finn, SAHP campaign representative. “Only three of our people still need to submit their response.” (Way to rally the troops, Geri!)

Remember that a “no-pledge” option is available online for employees who choose not to donate. If you’re unable to contribute, you’re still encouraged to access the website and submit the “no donation” response to be eligible for the prize drawings.
