In Brief

New English-as-a-Second-Language Class Begins
A new English-as-a-second-language class has begun. The class meets from 6:30 to 8:30 PM Tuesday evenings in the Immunology building west conference room. The price for three months (12 classes) is $60. Each intermediate-level English class is divided into speaking and listening, idioms and vocabulary, and reading and writing. If you would like to improve your English communication skills as well as understand your friends and colleagues, movies, television shows, and the news, this class is for you. Instructor Cassandra Wadkins uses movies, games, television shows, grammar books, songs, drawing and novels to teach standard American English. Have fun and learn English at the same time!

Upcoming Onsite Clinics
On Monday, April 24, Wednesday, April 26, and Friday, April 28, 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.
