The next Academic Senate meeting will be Monday, Jan. 8 at 3 p.m. in the Moot Courtroom of the College of Law. Senate meetings are open to the public.
The agenda will be posted here approximately one week before the meeting.
There will be two main changes as a result of the new kiosk system, effective Dec. 18:
- There will no longer be entry tickets or pay lot attendants, rather customers will purchase their desired time through the kiosk using their license plate and credit card.
- Sticker validations will no longer be valid on campus. Instead, validation “coupon codes” are available for purchase, by departments, and can be distributed to customers.
Kiosks work similar to a parking meter and payment or a validation must be made to initiate a parking session, not when leaving the pay lot. Vehicles parked in a pay lot with no valid form of payment will be ticketed.
If you would like more information on the kiosk system or want specific training, contact Commuter Services, Visitor Parking at email@example.com.
In a study recently published by the Journal of Cancer Education, HCI researchers discovered how AYA patients prefer patient navigation while going through cancer treatment, from theirinitial diagnosis, through survivorship.
HCI researchers Anne Kirchhoff, PhD and Samantha Pannier looked at how preferences for patient navigation services vary among AYAs by age, categorizing ages from 15-18 years-old, 19-25 years-old and 26-39 years-old. Their work shows that these age groups need different services, and lays the groundwork to develop best practices for AYA patient navigation.
The three most frequently mentioned needs by AYA patients were insurance questions, financial issues and where to find information and resources. Younger AYAs reported a need for assistance with school and wanted basic information about insurance, while older AYAs had more concerns about their family’s well-being and finances.
Overall, the study illustrated that AYA cancer patients and survivors of all age groups were interested in face-to-face conversations with a navigator and preferred using multiple communication platforms, including email, text and phone for follow up conversations. AYAs also want patient navigation support throughout their cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, regardless of age.
