1st Monday in Oct.

This year’s United Way campaign will run for only two weeks instead of the traditional four. The two-week blitz kicks off on the first Monday of October (Oct. 4). New this year: hot-dog lunches, slated for the Wednesdays and Fridays of each week. (Details to follow.) Turn in your pledge card; get a free lunch. The annual leadership breakfast, which this year includes campaign coordinators and team captains, is set for Sept. 21, from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in Turner Concourse.

Yes, there are the familiar dollar goals—$350,000 for the Hospital/Health System; $497,000 for the School of Medicine—but this year, says Hospital/Health System President Ron Peterson, “we want to emphasize greater participation. That’s been a problem here, as well as at other places. So if you’re in a position to be helpful in that area, we appreciate it.”

Awards Ahead

HBO Films Something the Lord Made has received nine Primetime Emmy nominations including one for best made-for-television movie, two for best actor (Mos Def, Alan Rickman), one for best director (Joseph Sargent), and one for best writing (Robert Caswell and Peter Silverman). The film depicted ground-breaking heart surgery as well as the racial barriers faced by Vivien Thomas when he arrived at Hopkins with mentor Alfred Blalock (see “The Way We Were”). The Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented Sept. 19.

Coffee All Around

The Women’s Board will open yet another coffee venue in mid-September: this, a coffee cart located in the lobby of Nelson and dubbed JavaJava. Featured will be “Seattle’s Best Coffee.” Running the project are board members Barbara Dover and Susan vanWagenberg. JavaJava joins four other Women’s Board coffee ventures: the Coffee Bars at JHOC and Green Spring Station, Juice and Java in Weinberg, and Books & Beans in the Welch Medical Library. Along with the Daily Grind on level 3 of the Research Building on Broadway and EspressOasis—not to mention the cafeterias—there now are a plethora of places where you can get your daily fix.
