Cancer Center Awarded Accreditation with Commendation from American College of Surgeons
Wilmot Cancer Center has received accreditation with commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Only one in four cancer programs in the country are accredited by the organization. Even fewer receive commendation, the highest level of accreditation.
Medical Center Recognized for Cardiac, Heart Failure, Stroke Care
The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association has once again honored the Medical Center with a Triple Performance Achievement Award for meeting its highest standards for coronary artery disease, heart failure and stroke care. The Medical Center is the only Rochester-area hospital to receive this honor.
Volunteers Sought for Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee
In the interest of improving the availability and quality of
conflict-resolution processes for students, an Alternative Dispute
Resolution Committee is forming for the 2009-10 academic year. Members
of the University community who have an expertise or passion for the
use of alternative dispute resolution and a desire to help the
undergraduate community become more involved in these programs are
invited to join. Committee members are asked to volunteer their time
for regular committee meetings and training, and to act as case
managers and facilitators of mediation and/or restorative justice
cases. For details, contact Morgan Levy, assistant dean of students for
the College, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 275-4085.
