Kohli Center – Library Mascot Joe Bone-ard:  The library has a mascot—you may have seen him. His name is Joe Bone-ard. Joe was named by a student (now one of our alum!) through a contest the library held in 2011. Joe was named for Joe Bernard, a much-loved member of the Anatomy and Neurobiology Department. Joe Bernard managed the Gross Anatomy lab until his retirement in 2012 after 31 years of service. Every student who walked through NEOMED’s doors since 1981 knew Joe!
