Happy Physician Assistant Week, Oct 6-10, 2014!
IN case you missed it, Tami Ritsema and Patty Scholting, assistant professors of physician assistant education, were recently featured in this UNMC Today article: Study explores efforts at patient education. Read about their study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention journal, Preventing Chronic Disease.
Melissa Meisinger, MA, recently joined the SAHP as a Research Training Exercise Coordinator working with Dr. Laura Bilek on her NIH funded grant. Melissa received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from UNO in exercise science.
In her spare time, she likes spending time with her nieces and nephew, as well as Braxton, her 5-year-old Shih Tzu. “I also enjoy running and watching football on the weekends,” she said.
Welcome to the School, Melissa!
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!)
