Hi! Here at the Medical Center, we often talk about making a difference. We make a difference in the lives of our patients and visitors, our students and trainees, our community, and our world. Every day, we make discoveries and implement innovations that will make a difference in hundreds of ways. In the coming weeks, the entire campus community will turn its attention toward making a difference as we kick off our annual Campus Campaign. As it says on my pin, "How do you want to make a difference?" is the theme for Campus Campaign 2011, the annual fundraising effort that encourages faculty and staff to support programs and departments at The Ohio State University. Last year, the Medical Center met its fundraising goal, with 45 percent of our employees contributing to one or more of the 8,000 funds available across campus. The active phase of Campus Campaign 2011 runs from March 1st through April 30th. You're invited to attend the Kickoff Event and Fund Fair with President Gee on Tuesday, March 1st, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. at the Mershon Auditorium Lobby. You can also find information on the home page of OneSource. I'd like to thank the Medical Center Campus Campaign Planning Committee, led by chair, Steve Cotter, co-chair, Kelly Scheiderer, and University co-chair, Roxann Damron, for their dedication to helping us all make a difference. Another way we make a difference at the OSU Medical Center is by sharing knowledge. We often host conferences or send our faculty to conferences and presentations to share our research and our best practices. One of these opportunities is coming up next week, when we host the "2011 Update on Robotic Surgery Across Disciplines" conference, February 25th, in the Biomedical Research Tower.
Drs. Ronney Abaza and Jeff Fowler, and speakers from Ohio State's Center for Advanced Robotic Surgery will share a comprehensive review of current and emerging robotic surgery applications for treating cancer, cardiac conditions and several other diseases.
In April, we'll welcome attendees to the fourth annual "Translational to Clinical Wound Care Conference." Dr. Chandan Sen is the conference director for this event, and he and his team are working to bring together experts from inside and outside OSU to discuss the latest advances in wound care. You can learn more about both of these conferences, and the many other ways we make a difference as we share our knowledge, by visiting OneSource. Whether it's in the lab, in the classroom, at the bedside, or any of the many other areas where together we make a difference, thank you for all you do to improve people's lives.
