Week in Review: Week of Aug. 6, 2018

August 10, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

The week at Headlines featured the acronym of the month — and a theme of the week! That’s right, many of the featured stories centered on one word: “celebrate.”

For instance, faculty and staff were invited to celebrate with their colleagues as the 2018 U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” rankings are revealed next Tuesday; incoming med students celebrated their arrival on campus during the White Coat Ceremony; and employees were celebrated by patients, families and coworkers for making a difference last month.
