Students, Faculty, Residents, Staff, Alumni, Board Members and Friends,
Another week has quickly passed. Thanks to all of you who commented on the triathlon I participated in last week. It turned out to be a perfect day for a race – relatively cool, overcast and not too windy. I ended up finishing 8th in my age group, which had 24 participants. I was happy with the results, given that I was in Budapest the week prior to the race.
Closer to home, congratulations are in order to Alexis Abate, Lesley Westerfer and the rest of our marketing and communications team for winning the gold award for best Website Element – Microsite of 2018, from the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. Check out the award-winning site. And while you’re at it, please consider our $100 for 100 challenge where we are attempting to have as many alumni, faculty and staff donate $100 to commemorate our 100th anniversary of PCO next year.
I’d like to extend a warm welcome of all of our Osborne College of Audiology Summer Workshop students. It’s great to have you all on campus this week.
Along the same lines, please join me in welcoming the undergraduate students and their chaperonesfrom Montclair State University to Salus. These students are here to learn more about our programs. They’ll attend a panel discussion, tour the Elkins Park campus, participate in clinical skills demonstrations, and hear from various faculty, students and staff. It should be a fun day for all!
The Salus Campus Activity Committee (CAC) hosted a movie night on Wednesday at the Hafter Center complete with popcorn and a candy bar. This is a fun summer event that students have enjoyed.
Congratulations to Dr. Kathleen Youse, director of the Speech- Language Pathology (SLP) program, who was recently elected as the next president of the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS). It’s great to see our academic leaders recognized in this fashion!
Speaking of our SLP program, they are having a Send Off party later today from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Magerk’s Pub & Grill in Fort Washington as a thank you to the supervisors and professors before students head off to externships. Come and join in the festivities if you can!
Congratulations to Dr. Caitlin Foy on being promoted to Director of the Occupational Therapy Doctoral (OTD) program. We know the program will continue to flourish under her leadership.
Finally, it looks like most of the weekend is going to be nice, so I encourage all of you to get outside and enjoy the nice weather. Be safe, have some fun and look out for one another.
