New name, new approach

UD's Office of Communications and Marketing has changed its name to Communications and Public Affairs to better reflect its mission and new goals to enhance the University's external outreach.

Faculty meet up

UD's Horn Program invites all faculty members with interests in design, innovation, technology and creativity to attend an informal meet up on Nov. 21 at the Venture Development Center.

“Please allow at least 30 minutes total in your schedule to receive the vaccine and the 20 minutes that SHS requests you stay after the injection,” said Dr. Timothy Dowling, physician and SHS director. “Also, make sure you have had something to eat that day before you come in to receive the vaccination.”

Vaccinations for faculty, staff

Faculty and staff can call the Nurse Managed Health Center (NMHC) office at 302-831-3195 to schedule an appointment.  For individuals who are insured, the NMHC will bill their health insurance for the vaccination; no payment is required at the time of service. 

 “It’s important to get vaccinated every year to prevent the flu,” said NMHC Director Allen Prettyman. “Influenza, or flu, is a contagious disease that can affect the nose, throat, and lungs and can cause serious illness, which can lead to death.”

Appointments are available Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. to noon.

The NMHC is located in 119 McDowell Hall. Visit the website for more information.
