Dr Cathy Palmer named Medical Director of the Laboratory at CVMC

first_imgCentral Vermont Medical Center,Long time Medical Director of the Laboratory at CVMC, Dr. Brian Travis, has passed the torch to his colleague, Dr. Cathy Palmer, who has been named the lab s new Medical Director.  Dr. Palmer received her MD/PhD degree from Indiana University and went on to complete an Internship and Residency in Pathology at the University of California San Diego Medical Center.  She came to Vermont to pursue a Clinical Fellowship in Cytopathology at Fletcher Allen Health Care and subsequently was a Research Fellow in Environmental Pathology at UVM.  Dr. Palmer is certified by the American Board of Pathology in Anatomic Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, with subspecialty certification in Cytopathology.  We are very happy Dr. Palmer agreed to take on her new role as Medical Director of the Laboratory, said Judy Tarr, CVMC s president & CEO.  She is a talented clinician with an impressive academic background.  Dr. Palmer has worked here since 2001 and is well established within the physician community.  I expect that she and our new Administrative Director of the Laboratory, Jeanne Laperle, will bring CVMC s lab to the next level with new initiatives and ways of doing business, concluded Tarr.  One of my key roles as Medical Director is to facilitate communication between the laboratory and the clinicians who rely on us, both in the hospital and in community-based practices. said Dr. Palmer.  All of us in the lab work very hard to provide our clinicians the test results they need as quickly and accurately as possible, so that they can provide the best possible care to their patients.  The CVMC lab offers a broad menu of tests in many different areas, including hematology, chemistry, serology, microbiology, and blood banking.  A newly purchased state-of-the-art instrument allows the lab to perform more tests in-house that previously were sent to outside reference labs.  That means faster turn-around times, and clinicians get test results sooner.  Within the next few months, new molecular diagnostic testing will be brought into the lab. Another important aspect of the CVMC laboratory is the Surgical Pathology service, which provides diagnoses of surgical specimens obtained in the OR as well as tissue biopsies, pap tests – and more – from the various medical practices.  Dr. Travis and Dr. Palmer support CVMC s surgeons by offering intra-operative evaluation of specimens by frozen section microscopy.  They also collaborate with CVMC s radiologists on CT- guided or ultrasound-guided aspiration biopsies of lung, liver, lymph node and thyroid.  Aspiration biopsy is a relatively non-invasive outpatient procedure that, in many cases, can provide same day diagnosis.  This is an exciting and challenging time at CVMC, noted Dr. Palmer.  We have new hospital administration and new leadership in the lab.  Similar to other areas of the hospital, like the Emergency Department and Same Day Surgery, our highest priority is to serve patients needs right here in our community.     Dr. Palmer and her husband, Bruce Scott, live in Waterbury with their two sons Colby, nine-years-old and Clay, eleven-years-old.  They are nature boys, so we spend lots of time outdoors, said Dr. Palmer.  Winter skiing is over and the boys are enjoying the Mad River Valley Spring Soccer League while looking forward to summer kayaking, hiking and fishing.last_img read more

Branded content from credit unions

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Ron ShevlinIn a paper titled Identity and Opinion: A Randomized Experiment, researchers wrote:“Content and identity are inextricably linked in social media. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Reddit, Netflix and Amazon all provide identity cues that affect users’ link formation decisions and choices about who to follow for the best content. [This] raises an interesting question: To what extent are opinions about content influenced by features of the content itself or the identity of the user associated with the content? [The results of] a large scale field experiment show that identity effects exist and vary with a content producer’s reputation, activity level and reciprocity with the viewer.”My take: This research has important implications for credit unions deploying content marketing strategies.In a previous post here titled Content Marketing For Banks, I wrote about one bank’s efforts to pursue a content marketing strategy.According to an article in American Banker, a rather large bank “is launching a new online magazine with a goal of driving more traffic to its website.” According to an EVP at the bank, “we’re tapping into the growing trend toward trusted sources for news and information and doing it in a way that will drive new and more frequent visits to our public site.” continue reading »last_img read more
