The fall photo contest winners are…
Sara Herta and Steve Upton won free hockey tickets through our fall photo contest!
They posted pics to social media with the hashtag UMHSlife. Both will receive four tix to U-M games in December.
As a medical scribe in the Pediatric Otolaryngology, Sara helps patients spend more face time with our doctors. She records findings, procedures and referrals so physicians don’t have to while they are talking to a patient.
“I enjoy doing little things for patients and co-workers to make them smile,” she says. “When a co-worker was having a bad day I bought her a light up pumpkin necklace from our gift shop and told her ‘I hope this brightens your day.”
Steve spends his days evaluating, admitting and managing patients in our Medical Short Stay Unit.
“I have the privilege to connect with and have a profound impact on the lives of complete strangers,” he says.
He also loves training new providers.
“It’s so rewarding to see them come into their own, developing the confidence and skills they need,” he says. “I work hard to help them understand that they are not only clinicians, but humanitarians who should treat each patient with respect, empathy and understanding.”
Steve is also a professional photographer. Check out his work at www.stevenchristianupton.com
