For the Record provides information about recent professional activities and honors of University of Delaware faculty, staff, students and alumni.
Recent presentations, appointments and honors include the following:
Alumnus Michael A. Silverman, emergency department chairman at Virginia Hospital Center as well as director of Emergency Medicine Associates’ Leadership Academy, served as a virtual guest presenter to a class in the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology. Silverman, who has been a practicing physician for nearly 30 years, completed his residency in emergency medicine at the John Hopkins University School of Medicine as chief resident and has authored one book and numerous textbook chapters during his career. For his presentation as part of the course titled “Emergency Care of Sports Related Injuries and Illnesses,” Silverman highlighted the COVID-19 pandemic experience and what healthcare providers need to be aware of going forward. Since 2020, Silverman has developed a large online following by creating posts to help viewers distinguish between truth versus fiction for the future implications of healthcare. "I was very grateful for Silverman to present to our first year Master of Science Athletic Training students on his insight into the importance of interprofessional collaboration," said Jeff Schneider, senior instructor in kinesiology and applied physiology. "He discussed how important it is to be an advocate for your profession and the importance of being a lifelong learner. These points resonated with our students. It is always great to have an outstanding medical professional speak to our students, but it is even better when it is a UD alumnus."

Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy and Administration associate dean of research and director of the Master of Public Health in health policy and management program, and Jessica E.
