We work hard here at UMMC to make sure patients get great care, and to get the word out about it.
As a large academic medical center, UMMC is in the news just about every day, whether it’s a physician being quoted about a hot topic in medicine, a moving account of how a patient beat the odds, or a business story about the impact of health care reform. Sharon Boston, UMMC media relations manager, is one of the people who makes sure these stories get told.
Today, she was in the news herself. Fred Rasmussen, a Baltimore Sun reporter and columnist, heard about Boston’s Nerd Trips blog, in which she writes on her frequent travels to historic sites, such as homes of presidents and great writers. Find the blog at www.nerdtrips.net.
