Taubman Named Editor of American Heart Association Journal
Mark Taubman, chief of the cardiology division and director of the Cardiovascular
Research Institute, has been named editor-in-chief of the journal Arteriosclerosis,
Thrombosis and Vascular Biology, one of five medical journals produced
by the American Heart Association. In conjunction with the appointment,
the journal offices will move to Rochester and will help focus national
and international attention on the University and the region as a major
center for the study of cardiovascular diseases.
for Using Fire Extinguishers
Environmental Health and Safety has posted guidelines for proper use
of fire extinguishers. Reminder: The only time a fire extinguisher should
be used to fight a fire is when the fire department has been notified,
there is a clear exit behind the person using the extinguisher, and
the fire is small, self-contained, and not spreading rapidly. To schedule
extinguisher training, call the Fire Marshal’s Office at x5-3243.

Small to Tackle Big Problem
“It requires having small groups of students and teachers working
together on an ongoing basis so that students understand that there
is somebody in their school who really knows them and will be there
for them," said Edward Deci, professor of clinical and social psychology,
during a brainstorming session on Wednesday held to address low graduation
rates in the Rochester City School District.
