The Office of Total Rewards presents The Retiree Spotlight! Staying connected to our University of Rochester retirees is important to us. To show how much we appreciate them and their years of dedication to the University, we’ve given our retirees the opportunity to tell us who they are, how long they’ve been with the University of Rochester and what they are up to now. We thank you for your hard work and years of dedication!
Greg Aspinall. After dedicating 29 years to the University of Rochester, Greg retired in April of 2018. Greg began in radiology and also worked in the Human Subjects Research Review Board, Department of Pulmonology, Department of Immunology, and Strong ties. He last worked in Radiology on East River Rd. where he monitored failed faxes to UR and outside providers having to research the reason they failed, contacting them and updating the information for Health Information Management to update e-Record. Greg misses seeing physicians in the hallways that he knew personally, many since when he began in 1988. He will also miss spending time during his lunch in the lower stacks reading medical journals in the Miner Library. Greg has stated the following about his time at the University, “I have fond memories of meeting many young men and women from around the world who made medicine their career. As I would walk the hallways, I would be reminded of the great value of our institution as a teaching facility for tomorrow’s physicians and researchers, and the privilege I had to be a small part of it.” Greg currently works time-as-reported in Health Information Management at the Brighton Business Center. Greg enjoys doing fine art photography, senior, and family portraits in his retirement, as well as spending time with his two grandchildren, traveling to Niagara on the lake, taking wine tours, and reading; and yes, he still visits Miner Library.
