Our First E-Newsletter by Joyce Krothe, Assistant Dean at IUSON Bloomington
We are excited to launch our new e-newsletter to all of our Bloomington alumni. This will be a bi-annual publication. It is difficult to believe that we have now graduated 8 classes from IUB and we are anxious to stay in communication with all of you. To that end please note the name of your class representative in this newsletter. Please e-mail them with your contact information so they can keep in touch with you related to IUSON events and happenings.
Our faculty is growing and we are proud to welcome new Assistant Professors Dr. Amy Wonder and Dr. Rebecca Feather in fall 2011; Dr. Wendy Miller, spring 2012; and Debra Harmon and Erin Wyatt as clinical assistant professors in fall 2012. I refer you to the section of our newsletter which provides a brief profile of our new faculty.
You are all aware of the importance of clinical simulation education and also inter professional education. We are excited to complete construction of our new state-of- the-art simulation center on campus this summer. This is a joint project with our colleagues in the School of Medicine on campus. We look forward to equipping it and utilizing it for classes sometime in fall 2012. In the future we will organize and Open House and make sure you are all informed.
By now you should have received an electronic notice to Save the Date for our Homecoming weekend Alumni Reunion. This will be an annual event and will be held this year on Friday, October 5, 2012, 6:30-8:30 pm at Nick’s English Hut. On game day, Saturday, Oct. 6 we will have a section of tables reserved for SON alumni to gather in the Hoosier Village tent on the south side of the football stadium. I look forward to seeing many of you at these two events.
During the past academic year our new Community Advisory Group met. Their names and affiliations are listed in this newsletter. They will meet on October 5th for their fall meeting and will look forward to meeting many of you at Alumni weekend events.
I look forward to an exciting academic year in 2012-13 and to keeping in touch with all of you.
