Congratulations to Charleen M. Moore, Ph.D.,
on her 40 years Service Award!
"I am still teaching after 40 years because of my opportunities to introduce students to the wonders of the human body, the human genome and the history of medicine. I still enjoy what I do because of my colleagues, my students, the Body Donation Program and the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library. My colleagues are dedicated teachers and administrative personnel who work as a team, supporting each other in many ways, volunteering to help out where needed, and offering suggestions and solutions to many challenges. My students are my inspiration; interacting with them in and out of the classroom and anatomy lab is one of my greatest joys. The ability to teach from the bodies of our generous body donors and from the rare medical texts in our P.I. Nixon Library is a true privilege."
