Sonography Journal Club kicks off inaugural meeting

Sonography Journal ClubThe Sonography Journal Club met for the first time on October 23, 2014, with 12 participants. The journal club is a way for the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program to stay connected/integrated with their clinical sites.  They meet bimonthly over lunch, and topics are related to what is relevant to their ever-expanding profession. CE credits are also provided for attendees.

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.
