UMDNJ Celebrates Its Own
Robin Eubanks, PhD, associate professor in interdisciplinary studies at the UMDNJ-School of Health Related Professions, addressed the group, sharing her own experiences over the past quarter century as a faculty member. She said her work here has not simply been a job; it has been a very meaningful career. She emphasized the rewards of teaching people who will in turn teach others. UMDNJ Interim President Denise V. Rodgers, MD, also spoke, pointing out the value of every employee at every level, from housekeeping to public safety to clinical care to management.
