our faculty and staff in the College of Medicine. The 2011 U.S. News & World Report Americas Best Graduate Schools rankings were released last week, and we are pleased to announce that the OSU College of Medicine is ranked 27 in Research among Americas 126 medical schools and 20 schools of osteopathic medicine. This is the same position we held last year, and continues to represent a gain of 13 positions since 2003.

Thank you all for your work on behalf of our students. We should all be proud of this great accomplishment!

Our Medical Center is one of Ohios largest and most complex organizations. We touch the lives of many people each day in fact every day we touch more than 4,400 lives.

It takes a great team to care for all of these patients and many members of that team give their time and talents as volunteers.

Last year more than 2,200 volunteers served patients, families, and staff across the medical center. It is likely that you have had the opportunity to interact with or witness the actions of a volunteer. Medical Center volunteers are easily identified by their uniforms: red jacket or vest on our adults; black scrub top for college students; beige scrub top on high school students. These uniforms are also embroidered with the Medical Center logo.

Volunteers serve in many capacities across the Medical Center from staffing information desks to delivering flowers and helping families in our atrium and surgery waiting areas, to visiting patients with members of our Pet Pals program. Youll find volunteers involved in all areas of the Medical Center.

This week marks 2010 National Volunteer Week. Please take a moment to thank a volunteer. Why not give them a Bravo sticker in appreciation of their hard work! Greet them with a warm handshake or enthusiastic high-five. Or, share with them a simple thanks so much for all you do.

This group is essential in helping us to improve peoples lives.

We all have another opportunity to improve lives through the Operation Feed program which starts this week.

Operation Feed is a community-wide program to support Mid-Ohio Foodbank. The Medical Center and entire University play an important role in this campaign annually, each year, and this year, the need is greater than ever.

Annually, Mid-Ohio Food Bank distributes 31 million pounds of food to people in need. Soup kitchens in the service area provide more than 269,000 meals every month. Those who receive food have often had to choose between food and other basic necessities such as utilities or even shelter. The need is often highest among seniors and children.

The Operation Feed goal this year is supplying 23, 224 meals to those in need in central Ohio. The campaign will run from April 19 May 13, and there are many ways you can get involved. Collection boxes for canned and boxed food will be placed throughout the Medical Center and cash donations can be made at any Seasons Café location. A donation of just $1 can provide a meal for a person in need.

Complete information on this important opportunity is available on OneSource. Please take time to help improve the lives of those who need it most in our community.

And, please thank a volunteer.

Have a great week.
