Director's Corner: A New Home
Salus CenterWe have a new home. For many of us, it is literally a new home. We welcomed four new students into the Gnaegi Center's PhD program. They are settling in nicely and finding the lay of the land at Saint Louis University. Even though I arrived on July 1, I am not the newest member of our faculty. Stephanie Solomon arrived in September; she will be doing a lot of research ethics education and continuing her own research agenda into community engagement and ethics. The students, Stephanie and I are adjusting well to a new city and to finding our way around campus.
