Northwestern Medical Center gets $100,000 for Wennar scholarship fund

first_imgNorthwestern Medical Center has received a generous estate gift, courtesy of the late Dr Martin Wennar.  Dr. Wennar gifted $100,000 to the fund that bears his name, the Martin H Wennar, MD Health Education Scholarship Fund.  Dr Wennar, a retired general surgeon, passed away in August of 2009 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.  “Marty always felt that it was a privilege to care for patients,” says his widow, Carol Streeter Wennar. “He hoped the Scholarship Fund would help others to make an impact on people’s lives.”Dr. Wennar helped establish NMC’s Health Professions Scholarship Program in 1987.  In 2003, the scholarship fund was renamed and dedicated to Dr. Wennar, in honor of his long-standing commitment to encouraging health professions through scholarships.  In recent years, the need to ensure the long term viability of the program has become even clearer, as health professions have faced shortages nationwide.  Dr. Wennar’s gift will help achieve sustainability for the fund. On the value of pursuing a health career in a rural community, Dr. Wennar once said, “I want to see kids go into health care because it’s a wonderful career.  It’s very rewarding to be able to help people.  And, Franklin County is a wonderful setting for someone to work in—it truly affords you an opportunity to make an impact on people’s lives.”For more information about the Martin H.

The good thing about being at home…

first_imgMost of us have been trying our best to stay at home for at least two weeks now. These days, two weeks feels like two months. We don’t all have celebrity-sized estates that allow us to forget we’re under quarantine, so cabin fever is a real battle. While being stuck at home isn’t ideal, it’s hopefully shortening the life of the coronavirus, and that’s a definite plus. If you’re looking for some other advantages of having to stay at home, here are a few things to think about…You can stop putting “it” off: There’s probably a million projects you’ve been wanting to get to around your house. There’s probably a million books you’ve picked up and then put back down. And I know there’s a million shows that have been recommended to you, only for you to say “I’ll add that to my list.” If you’ve been putting stuff off until “tomorrow”, it is now “tomorrow”.You can examine your habits: I don’t know about you guys, but this quarantine has made me realize a lot of things. One thing I’ve realized is how often I dine out. I’ve tried to continue to support some of my favorite restaurants by getting take out here and there, but I’ve definitely been cooking at home WAY more than I ever have. I’ve enjoyed the savings. If you’re used to drinking the coffee at work every day you may not realize how much caffeine you’re drinking, but when you start running out of k-cups, you’ll realize real fast if you’re drinking too much.You can learn a lot about distractions: You’re at home, your spouse is home, and your kids are home. There are distractions everywhere. This will be life for now. Because of all the distractions around you, you’ll figure out quickly how to fight through them to get stuff done. Once this is over, you’ll hopefully be able to apply some of these distraction-fighting techniques to life at the office. 79SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Supreme Court defers vote on Marcos poll protest

first_img “We cannot speak ahead of the court’s decision and I can’t discuss the case’s merits, but we hope for a favorable decision considering that we know what happened during the entire process,” Robredo said. Based on a media advisory on Tuesday, the high court justices have decided to hold the voting on Marcos’ protest on October 8. The verdict on the case should have come out yesterday. Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. claims “massive cheating” caused him to lose to Vice President Robredo in the 2016 vice-presidential race by some 260,000 votes. Marcos cited alleged pre-shading of ballots, massive vote buying, script change in the transparency server that supposedly altered the results, pre-loaded secure digital cards, misreading of ballots, malfunctioning vote counting machines, and an “abnormally high” unaccounted votes/undervotes for the position of vice president. Marcos only lost the vice presidential race to Robredo by 263,473 votes in the final and official tally by Commission on Elections. Marcos garnered 14,155,344 votes while Robredo got a total of 14,418,817. Robredo, in an interview on Tuesday, said that she is hopeful the SC will come out with a favorable decision on the electoral protest. “As I have said in the past, as long as the case is pending, there is a platform for them to spread propaganda which most of the time is fake news.  So we hope it is decided upon,” she added./PN In his election protest, the former senator questioned the election results in 39, 221 clustered precincts in some 25 provinces and five cities all over the country involving around 9 million votes. Manila – The Supreme Court (SC), sittingas the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, deferred voting on former senatorFerdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s election protest against Vice President LeniRobredo. SC Associate Justice Alfredo Caguioa already submitted a report on the recount and the revision of ballots from three provinces but the high court justices two weeks ago. The ballot recount covered 5,415 election precincts in three pilot provinces chosen by Marcos: Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. The results of the recount will determine whether or not the case will proceed to Marcos’ remaining contested voting precincts.last_img read more
