In Brief

Postdoctoral Services Updates Web Site
The Scripps Research Postdoctoral Services Office has launched a new web site to provide more accessible and comprehensive information on postdoctoral services at the institute. "We feature news and events on our home page, and in general the information we present is easier to get to," says Postdoctoral Services Coordinator Ryan Wheeler. Visit the revised Postdoctoral Services web site at http://www.scripps.edu/services/postdocs/.

New Permanent Location for Onsite Clinics
On Monday, March 20, Wednesday, March 22, and Friday, March 24, personnel from Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group will be on-site to conduct TB screenings, Hepatitis B immunizations, serum draws, and tetanus immunizations.

The clinics will be conducted in the 3366 Building, in Room 325, on the third floor, from 11 AM to 2 PM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This will be the new permanent location for the on-site clinics.

No appointments are necessary. TB screening requires a 48 to 72 hour follow-up. Individuals receiving the TB screen on Monday will need to return on Wednesday, and individuals screened on Wednesday, will need to return on Friday. Initiation of the TB screening process will not be available on Friday, but Hepatitis B immunization, serum draws, and tetanus immunizations will be. To learn more about these programs, see the Environmental Health & Safety Occupational Medicine web page, which includes a map and patient information sheets.
