News and Announcements

Event Today Supports United Way Campaign
The United Way Young Leaders Initiative will host a call to action event today. Look for United Way informational tables set up at lunchtime in several locations around the University. Young Leaders will be celebrating United Way's contribution to the Rochester community and answering questions about the Blueprints for Change. There will also be an opportunity to ePledge at the event.

Go Green: 'Green' Floors
go green
If you look at the floors of the School of Medicine and Dentistry, you'll notice that they are not green, not in color at least. They are, however, kept clean in a rather environmentally friendly way.

University Mourns Death of Lawrence Kasinowski
The University flag is lowered today to remember Lawrence Kasinowski, who died April 1. An electrician for the Medical Center's Facilities Department, Kasinowski joined the University in February 2004. He was 55 and lived in Rochester. See his obituary from the Democrat and Chronicle.

Rochester River Run 5K This Weekend
On Sunday, April 11, Friends of Strong and the Transplant Unit will host its ninth annual Rochester River Run/Walk 5K at Genesee Valley Park. Prizes will be awarded to both runners and walkers in various categories. Funds raised will be used to ease financial hardship for patients as it impacts on their transplant experience. Last year's event raised more than $10,000 for transplant patients and their families. Download the brochure to register.
