A match made in medical school

 • Medical school forges a bond of commonality where relationships are often a natural outgrowth for many medical students. For two med students in particular, volunteering at University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine (UNR Med) Student Outreach Clinics brought them closer than they ever could have imagined.

Project Medical Education

 • Medical schools like the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR Med) are classified as community-based. That label doesn’t come close to describing the critical importance we place on being fully-engaged with our community, and finding many different approaches to support that engagement. One of those approaches is Project Medical Education (PME).

Reflections from the Dean: Understanding the important work of the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory

 • Most of you probably know little about the work of the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory (NSPHL). You should, because the lab scientists and technicians are literally working around the clock to protect you and all Nevadans from a wide range of potential infections, food-borne illness, and unsafe water, as well as providing emergency response to biological and chemical terrorism, and testing every Nevada baby for more than 30 hereditary diseases.

A tribute to our Nevada Medicine Weekly editor, colleague and friend, Roseann Langlois

 • On December 26, our beloved UNR Med Advancement and Engagement Content Marketing Manager, Roseann Langlois, suffered a brain aneurysm and passed away unexpectedly.It is a tragedy to be writing these words. For Roseann, our colleague and teammate, and for me, our jobs revolve around words. A million words cannot bring her back. Words seem so feeble in moments like these. The passing of one of our most lively and fit colleagues is illogical. It is a tragedy, but also an honor to share this tribute to Roseann - our colleague and friend, a mother, daughter, sister, fitness teacher, healthy lifestyle advocate, LGBTQIA ally, public relations student mentor, shelter volunteer, and so much more.
