Tammy Sczcepanski, a patient at The Joyce D. and Andrew J. Mandell Center for Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care and Neuroscience Research, was the winner of a signed and custom framed reprint of ""The Hope of Joan"" which depicts the hope of patients who receive care at the comprehensive center. The print was commissioned for the Mandell MS Center''s 2016 International MS Brain Symposium by MS activist, artist and MS patient Lydia Emily Archibald. Peter Wade, M.D., medical director of neurology at the Mandell MS Center, organized a drawing for patients to win this signed reprint. The original artwork hangs in the waiting room at the Mandell MS Center. #ms #multiplesclerosis #lydiaemily #lydiaemilyarchibald

We are pleased to announce that John Griskewicz, R.N., on the Surgical Telemetry unit, has been selected as Colleague of the Month. He was nominated because: ""John is living and breathing the Core Values of our organization."" In addition to his daily responsibilities, John has recently started orienting new graduate nurses. He has completely dedicated himself to this task by creating templates and tools to teach new colleagues on how to give a report or about frequent medications administered on the unit. ""John serves as a role model for the team and he does not leave work until everything is done right, and he never stops advocating for his patients.""
