The department thanks Dr. Peter Hogan (the humble one with the baby carriage) for his long service as departmental chair and wishes him well as he moves on to direct the Physicians Assistant Program.


The department's two tortoises made the picnic as well on their way from their winter home in the greenhouse to their summer pasture outdoors.
