Student-Athletes Honored by U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association
Jacqueline Cinella and Yaneve Fonge have been named to the 2009 All-Academic Women’s Track and Field Team by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Athletes must achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 or higher and attain either an automatic or provisional qualifying performance in a track and field event.
When Health Goes, Doctor-Patient Relationship Should Grow
The cornerstone of a good doctor-patient relationship begins with the doctor’s ability to clarify a patient’s preferences and values, especially during a difficult diagnosis, says Ronald Epstein, professor of family medicine, psychiatry, and oncology, in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Emerging Science Educators Use Power of Blogging
Graduate students in the Warner School's science teacher preparation
program blog regularly about classroom and student teaching experiences
on their way to becoming science teachers.
