University-wide initiative provides free personal hygiene products
In response to student requests, the university has launched an initiative to provide free women’s personal hygiene products on each of its campuses. The Office of the Chief Operating Officer and Student Government Association have purchased and installed 26 personal hygiene dispensers that will provide free tampons and pads in case of emergency. The Women’s Center and American Association of University Women at UofL provide stocked baskets at several other locations. More details, including a map of distribution points, are available online.
Preserve publication options – Register your trial on Clinicaltrials.gov
Journals that follow the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Trial Registration Policy require clinical trials to be publicly registered at or prior to first patient enrollment. Member journals are fully enforcing this policy and delayed registration risks the inadmissibility of your article. ICMJE broadly defines interventional clinical trials. Intervention types can include, for example, behavioral treatments and educational programs.
Group outings with Louisville Basketball available
Bring your group* to a men’s or women’s basketball game and $5 of every ticket purchased will go back to a scholarship of your choice (*50-person minimum). Group benefits include: pre-game reception; visit from UofL Athletics special guest; food and beverage access; donation to scholarship for UofL students. Cost is $10 for women’s basketball and $30 for men’s basketball.
