From the College of Health Sciences:

Kudos on accomplishments
Josh Matacotta, PsyD, CAHIMS, served as a scientist reviewer for the Integrated Review Group panel for applications submitted for the second round of 2019 SBIR/STTR Neuro/Psychopathology, Lifespan Development, and STEM program, which is part of the Division of AIDS, Behavioral, & Population Sciences (DABP) Risk, Prevention, and Health Behavior (RPHB-12).


From the College of Veterinary Medicine:

Kudos on accomplishments
CVM alumnus Mihail Kaminsky, DVM ’19, was recently accepted to an ophthalmology residency program at Eye Care for Animals. Dr. Kaminsky was especially thankful to Dr. Ohad Levi for his laparoscopy course which prepared him for this residency since the facility uses it to perform lap OEs on a regular basis and he feels at ease using the skills he learned here at WesternU CVM.

CVM Professor Ellen Collisson was elected President of the Friends of Malawi, an organization that includes return Peace Corps volunteers from Malawi and is dedicated to providing aid to the economic and educational development of Malawi.
