Kudos on accomplishments
Brion Benninger, MD, MSc, Professor of Medical Innovation, Technology & Research and the Executive Director of the Medical Anatomy Center, has been invited to collaborate with a technology company to integrate the benefits of Telehealth & Telemedicine into acute care clinics (training third- and fourth -year students) while teaching first- and second-year students during their basic science years the fundamentals leading ultimately to becoming tomorrow’s caring, highly efficient skilled practitioners. This would support practitioners who can improve and/or maximize their communication and palpatory skills of physical examination, manipulation, image interpretation and invasive techniques from Telehealth & Telemedicine.

Student Study Days
The office of Annual Giving held its third annual Student Study Days event on December 7 and 9.  Free snacks were provided to more than 400 happy and appreciative students to help them stay energized during their preparations for final exams. Free popcorn, chips sponsored by Frito Lay, fruit, hot chocolate, water and coffee were handed out in the HEC Recital Hall. We look forward to sharing this special event and supporting our well-deserving students again next fall. Click here to view photos.
