The library proffers congratulations to Debra Loguda-Summers, 3-D print and work-study manager, who applied and received two monetary awards for the Missouri branch library. Included is a brief description of each award.
KOAA/KCOM Education Program Fund, $2,837.20. The library plans to use this fund to purchase five new anatomical teaching and study tools: Somso premium female skeleton; five-part eyeball anatomy model; four-part human skull with facial musculature; a human dental skull model with open mandible exposing tooth roots, vessels, and nerves; and a half-human skeleton and disarticulated half-human skeleton with loosely articulated hand and foot model. The goal of the library is to enrich the osteopathic medical and dental student ability to care for their patients. Objectives: 1) expand the representations of human anatomy model resources and 2) increase faculty and student utilization of anatomy models available in the Missouri campus library.
AAOA SPECIAL PROJECTS $3,000 is the maximum award available. Debra Loguda-Summers received notification Oct. 27 from Lawrence Cunningham, Director of Affiliate Affairs at the American Osteopathic Association, that the Missouri branch library had received the grant for anatomical models.
