You can submit an entry as an individual or group. We will have a faculty/staff category and a student category.

Congratulations to Corrine Hanson, PhD, RD, LMNT, and Glenda Woscyna, MS, RD, LMNT, on the publication of their article, “Demographics and Nutrition-Related Patient Care Encounters: A Survey of Physician Assistants in Nebraska.” It appears as the lead article in the Journal of PA Education, 25(3), 2013.
Physician Assistant program director, Michael Huckabee, MPAS, PhD, PA-C, had this to say about the article:
“Their contribution to our PA literature brings focused attention to the on-going need for nutrition-related content in PA curricula in programs across the country so that our profession sufficiently meets the health care needs of our patients.”
The School of Allied Health Professions, for the second year in a row, made it to 100% participation in the United Way campaign. Thank you to all faculty and staff for helping us set a record… again.
Please bring your tennis shoes every Tuesday, September 17 through the end of October, and meet members of the SAHP Wellness Committee on the 3rd Floor of Bennett Hall at noon for a brief ( 10 to 30 minutes) walk during lunch time. If the weather permits, the walks take us outdoors, otherwise, we’ll use the tunnels.
Take a break, it’s good for you!
Brought to you by the SAHP Wellness Committee.
