It is with mixed emotions that we announce the departure of Jen Pitz from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP). She has been a valuable member of ORSP for almost five years and will be greatly missed. Jen has accepted a position as research grant coordinator in clinical research at Akron Children’s Hospital; her last day at NEOMED will be Friday, Feb. 5. I would like to invite the NEOMED community to a farewell party for her on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 2:30-4 p.m. in room F233. Please join us in wishing Jen every success in her new position.
