SOME SAD NEWS

Jackie Stover died from breast cancer Sunday, February 22nd, at the Hospice Care Center in Fitchburg. The obituary appeared in the February 25th, Wisconsin State Journal. She was 58. Jackie worked as a program assistant in the Chair's office for about a year during 2000-2001. She was a very pleasant woman who always had a smile for people who came to our office. She left us when the opportunity to fill a PA3 position came her way, and we were sorry to see her go.

Symposium at the Fall ACS Meeting

********************

We invite you to consider contributing a talk to a unique symposium at the Fall ACS meeting in Philadelphia. The symposium is entitled “Creating Complete Scientists: Graduate Student Visions of Doctoral Reform” and will focus on identifying challenges facing current graduate curricula as the nature of scientific research evolves and providing examples of graduate programs that have incorporated changes to try to address these challenges. Abstracts of talks may be submitted online using the OASYS system at : http://www.chemistry.org. We welcome contributions from all chemists; however, submissions from graduate students will be given special attention. Questions about the symposium should be sent to the organizing committee at: complete_sci@chem.wisc.edu.
