Family Medicine staff selected for Silver U award

Congratulations to Department of Family Medicine Office Associate Alec Kudrna for being selected as the College of Medicine Silver U awardee for August. 

This is in recognition for his work on the opening and transition of overflow COVID-19 clinics in March-May 2020. Kudrna ensured that Family Medicine providers were privileged and all providers who were reassigned to the clinics were properly privileged and able to immediately support. 

He worked with medical staff and the privileging board to make the transition as smooth as possible. Without this work, the clinic would not have opened as quickly as it did. His time and dedication is greatly appreciated.

Congratulations, Alec!
