News and Announcements

Work Begins on Trustee Road
Starting today, crews are starting to repair catch basins along Trustee Road and along Wilson Boulevard, near the intersection with Trustee Road, on the River Campus. While the work is being completed, Trustee Road will be reduced to one lane, with flagmen posted at both ends of the road. There may be minor traffic delays during the project, however most of the work will be done in the early morning hours. Trustee Road is expected to be opened back up by June 15.

Honorable mentions were awarded to Louise Bennett, a clinical assistant professor of family medicine, and to Melissa deSa, a third-year pediatrics resident.
