New Position for Ruti!
This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and iPod Squad Volunteers.
It is with mixed emotions that I write to let you know that Ruti Volk has accepted the newly created position of Patient Education Librarian with the UMHS. Congratulations to Ruti as she tackles this new endeavor! She will certainly be missed as she leaves her role as the PERC Libarian in the Cancer Center.
For many years Ruti has been an active member of the Patient Education Oversight and Steering committees at UMHS. In recent months, she has been responsible for building a Patient Education Clearinghouse, which brings together materials from across the health system into a central database. She has also implemented a health cataloging system that brings resources from the seven centers together.
This, of course, is in addition to the wonderful work she continues to do at both the Cancer Center's PERC and the CVC's Mardigian Wellness Resource Center. The UMHS Librarian position was created in order to allow these system-wide patient education improvements to continue. While we are sad to see her leave us, we are very happy to know that whomever fills her shoes will be able to continue to benefit from Ruti's leadership and guidance.
When you see Ruti, please congratulate her on her new role, which officially begins on December 1, 2010.
