Retirement - Kathy Day
It is with mixed feelings that we bid farewell to Kathy Day. Kathy started with the Academy for Innovation in Medical Education (AIME) in 2009. She was instrumental in building the team of research assistants within AIME, which has now transformed into the Research Support Unit (RSU) under the Department of Innovation in Medical Education. Under her direction the RSU has supported over 200 medical education projects, a truly remarkable achievement.
Kathy will be remembered as a knowledgeable, diligent and highly competent research manager. No task was too great or small and her background in education, computer programming and business analysis allowed her to improve and innovate the structure and efficiencies of the RSU. True to form, Kathy was always modest and self-effacing, but those of us who have worked with her recognize her incredible skills and wisdom.
Kathy will be moving to the UK to be with her family. Kathy, we wish you well in your retirement and will miss you, your wealth of insight and your constant support!
An informal gathering will be held on June 16th from 1:00pm to 2:30pm at the RGN Staff Lounge – Room 3004. Feel free to drop in and join us in wishing her well.
New Project Manager
We are also delighted to announce that Lesley Ananny was the successful candidate for Kathy’s position and will be transitioning into her new role in early June. Lesley has several years experience as a research assistant in the RSU and we are thrilled that she is taking on this role. Her leadership will ensure a smooth transition so all projects continue to be expertly managed by the unit. Congratulations Lesley!
