Bereavement services are an important part of end-of-life care with potential to ameliorate distress among bereaved caregivers. However, little is known about individuals' preferences regarding structure, content, and delivery of services.
Elizabeth Bergman, assistant professor of aging studies, recently presented "Exploring Bereavement Service Use Preferences and Motivations" at the 36th annual meeting of the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC), held April 23-26, 2014, in Baltimore. She presented survey outcomes from 60 bereaved hospice caregivers. Professor Bergman conducted the research in collaboration with Marna Metcalf, MA, a grief counselor with Hospice of Central New York.

Rogalski, who did her doctoral work at UF, conducted a study showing older adults remembered more details from a text when they read it and described it to someone else compared to those who just re-read it several times.
The study was inspired by a training technique Rogalski developed at UF called "Read Attentively, Summarise and Review." This method, known as RASR, calls for participants to read a passage out loud and then summarize what they’ve read after each paragraph.
Rogalski’s research was originally published online by Aphasiology in February and appeared in the journal’s print edition in April.

I am currently interested in general surgery and plastic surgery as specializations are concerned, but I am staying open to all experiences in medical school. I hope to be able to return to my home country of Nigeria to contribute to the betterment of health care system there. Having lived in Nigeria for 18 years of my life, I am well aware of the need for better health care professionals and facilities, and would like to set up a practice there as well.

Sarah Brylinksy, Communications Management and Design ’08, recognized in Sierra Magazine for her “Aha Moment” here at IC.
Below is an excerpt from her interview:
A couple of months into a freshman seminar, Sarah Brylinsky sat through a PowerPoint presentation. It wasn't much more than a series of line charts from a 2001 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. But the charts had pluck. Their lines were fire engine red, and they rose fervently up, up, following the perilous trajectory of greenhouse gas concentrations and surface temperatures. The final slide was just a quote from David A. King, the former chief scientific adviser to the British government: "In my view, climate change is the most severe problem that we are facing today--more serious even than the threat of terrorism."
