Hiring? Remember to Return Candidate Record Sheet to HR
Human Resources reminds all hiring departments to complete and return a Candidate Record Sheet as part of any staff recruitment effort. The data collected helps the University comply with federal reporting requirements and to assess diversity initiatives. Please refer any questions to your HR Liaison.
Eye Institute Offers Free Dry Eye Screening
The Eye Institute is holding a second dry eye screening for University employees and their family members on Friday, July 31, in its faculty practice clinic, on the third floor of the Eye Institute at 210 Crittenden Blvd. The free screenings are by appointment only, take approximately 20 minutes, and involve placing a small paper test strip in the corner of the eye. If you test positive for dry eye, you may be asked if you’d like to be entered in the database for future clinical studies of new artificial tear formulations. Call 275-URMC to make an appointment.
Tours Available for Exhibition
Docent-led tours of the 62nd Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition meet at the admission desk of the Memorial Art Gallery at 1, 2, and 3 p.m. Sunday, July 26. The biennial show is dedicated to the art of upstate New York.
