EHSL continues on as the MidContinental Region RML

10321169_10153323258170919_5731270320908391024_oWe are honored to announce that the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library (EHSL) will continue as the Regional Medical Library (RML) for the MidContinental Region and that we will continue to coordinate national training under the new title of NN/LM Training Office (NTO) beginning May 1, 2016. It is policy that the state’s congressional delegation be given the opportunity to announce federal funding before the funding agency makes the announcement. Utah’s delegation was notified on March 31, 2016 and a representative from Senator Hatch’s office sent Jean Shipman, Director of EHSL, a congratulatory email.

The staff for the NN/LM MidContinental Region and the NN/LM Training Office are ready to begin the implementation of the great ideas that they submitted to the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in their proposals.

The official announcement appeared on April 1 (fortunately not a joke) on the NLM web site: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/nlm-rml-coop-agreement-2016.html

Kristen Ries and Maggie Snyder Day

IMG_2895 (800x533)Mayor Biskupski proclaimed March 29 as Kristen Ries and Maggie Snyder Day. Dr. Kristen Ries and Maggie Snyder PA-C opened the AIDS/HIV clinic at University Health Care in 1994. They treated the majority of HIV/AIDS patients in the Mountain West since then. Dr. Ries states, “It was never my intent to become an activist. But I just knew I could protect myself against HIV/AIDS with the same protocols I would use for any other infectious disease. So we forged on with knowledge and naiveté. I care for the underserved because I believe everyone deserves reasonable care.” We honor their compassionate service to humanity.
