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!

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!
