Administrative Professionals honored at Faculty Club luncheon

Scheduling, processing, typing, faxing, and phone -- those are just a few of the things that administrative professionals do for the Department of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics.

The admins, as they're sometimes called, keep the department running smoothly day in and day out.

On Wednesday, April 25, they were honored with a luncheon at the Faculty Club on South Campus.

It was Administrative Professionals Day and a time to say thanks.

"Administrative assistants provide crucial support to our faculty that ensures the department operates effectively and efficiently," said Layla Bushnell, Administrative Manager for the Department.

The job of an administrative professional has changed dramatically in the past decades because of new technology and big shifts in the economy. Yet, the list of job responsibilities has not gotten shorter. Some of the many responsibilities include data entry in EPIC, processing invoices / CKR’s for payment and support for research coordinators, Principal Investigators as well as faculty.
