As many of you know, Nancy Hanner retires this month, after 35 years in the department. For most of those years, she has been the primary faculty support person for the cardiovascular division and has provided administrative support for at least 150 faculty over the various other divisions of anesthesiology.
For many years, Nancy was the welcoming face for ACEM (Anesthesiology Course for Engineers and Marketing Personnel), having coordinated over 70 of the week-long workshops. She worked closely with such department legends as J.S. Gravenstein and David Paulus and is one of the few in the department who has worked with every chairman this department has ever had (although J.S. Gravenstein was a Graduate Research Professor and former chairman in her time). Her long-time employment and devotion to this department is deeply appreciated. Nancy will be greatly missed here, but we are excited for her as she eagerly begins her “new” life after retirement.
She was honored for her years of service with a luncheon on Friday, January 15. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors!!
