Mihai Podgoreanu, M.D. – 2009 Presidential Scholar Award Mark F. Newman, MD

Dr. Mihai Podgoreanu received the ASA 2009 Presidential Scholar Award. The ASA Presidential Scholar Award was initiated in 2003 to stimulate scientific advancement by recognizing colleagues who have dedicated their careers to research. Mihai is a most deserving recipient following in the foot-steps of an outstanding group of recipients. I am excited for Mihai and for the department and look forward to his receiving the Award at the ASA Meeting in New Orleans. Please join me in congratulating Mihai on this exceptional recognition of his great work. The full article can be read at:

ASA Hotel Room Block Information Mark F. Newman, MD

In order to maximize our impact while minimizing the overall departmental cost, we will again have a hotel arrangement this year that will allow us to consolidate and take advantage of group purchase to reduce our food and room rental expenses. In order to accomplish this we have a room block at the Renaissance Hotel in New Orleans. You will need to book your room by visiting the site listed below. The link includes our reservation code for our room rate. I expect that we will fully reserve in our block first before using any outside hotels. If you have any questions or concerns please see me. The Marriott Renaissance in New Orleans has reduced the Duke Anesthesiology room block rate from $259/night to $215/night which is the ASA room rate. If you have already made your reservation it will be changed to reflect the new $215 rate. If you have any questions or problems contact Gloria Howard at gloria.howard@duke.edu or 6816493. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/msydt?groupCode=dukduk a&app=resvlink&fromDate=10/15/09&toDate=10/22/09

Temporary Policy for the Advancement of Time Off In order to help limit the exposure of the novel H1N1 virus this fall, Duke has introduced a temporary policy to help provide continuous pay up to a designated maximum for staff who have exhausted their accrued leave so they are allowed to remain away from work if they become sick with the flu. Staff who have flu-like symptoms (distinguished by a fever of 100 degrees or more) and have exhausted their accrued time can receive Continues on page 3.
