Opportunities to Meet and Discuss Health Center Issues

Dear Colleagues,

I want to share a few updates with you:

Just a reminder that I have blocked off time early Wednesday evenings as special “office hours” to be sure that faculty and staff have quick access to me. If you would like to set up a time to meet, please contact Christine Bennett at to make arrangements.

I want to also thank the many of you who have attended my weekly “Group of Ten” sessions. I am particularly happy with these interactions, which involve faculty and staff who are not in senior administrative positions.

I will complete my rounds of faculty meetings this fall, but if for some reason you want to communicate directly by email, please know that I answer my own emails and will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Please remember to go online and participate in UConn Health 2020 at

Finally, I sat down with Jim Pellegrino, a local cable TV show host, to talk about Bioscience Connecticut and the future of the Health Center. The interview is posted on the Health Center’s home page.
