Advance Welcomes Health Center Readers
January 24, 2000

Starting with this issue, the Advance enthusiastically welcomes UConn Health Center faculty and staff as readers and contributors. In addition to its regular distribution, the Advance will be distributed every Monday during the academic year to employees at Farmington, replacing Vista, a monthly newsletter formerly published at the Health Center.

The Advance is also posted to the web at by noon each Friday, prior to the Monday cover date. Articles published since February 1997 are available in the Advance archive, and can be searched by keyword or date.

The consolidation reflects steps already underway for all components of the University to work more closely together. The Advance will continue to publish news stories and feature articles on faculty and staff, as well as on programs, events, activities and issues at the University, whether the story is located at Storrs, Farmington, Avery Point, Stamford or one of the other campuses.

The consolidation has been prompted by budget constraints. But it also offers advantages. As a weekly publication, the Advance will bring more frequent and timely news about the whole University to readers at the Health Center. The newly integrated publication will also offer readers throughout the University more information and insights about the Health Center.

The changes beginning in this issue also include a new series on the hidden landscape of the University by contributing writer Robert Thorson, a professor of geology and geophysics. And the Advance will no longer carry University job advertisements. The ads are posted on the Department of Human Resources' website: and a link will be provided direct from the Advance website.

Story ideas may be discussed with Patrick Keefe at the Health Center: (860) 679-2447, or Elizabeth Omara-Otunnu at Storrs: (860) 486-3530.
