Mood Disorders Program earns national distinction
The University of Florida’s Mood Disorders Program, spearheaded by the department of psychiatry at UF’s College of Medicine, has been named a center of excellence by the National Network of Depression Centers, or NNDC. UF Health is the first academic health center in Florida to earn this distinction.
The NNDC is a consortium of leading academic health centers working to accelerate research, education and improved treatment options for patients suffering from depression, bipolar disorder and other mood disorders.
UF Health joins 21 other NNDC centers of excellence, including the Mayo Clinic, Stanford University and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
New dining options guide available
The new UF Health Shands Food & Beverage Options handout makes it easy for patients, visitors and staff to find eateries in the UF Health Archer Road facilities. From salad bars and sushi to Tex-Mex and smoothies, the two-sided resource lists all dining options and hours of operation. The back displays a map of UF Health Shands Hospital, UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital, UF Health Heart & Vascular and Neuromedicine hospitals, UF Health Medical Plaza and the 1329 Building — and highlights the location of each dining option.
View and print the handout from the Bridge, under the “Employee Services” tab and “Cafeteria Menus” link. Patients and visitors can go online at UFHealth.org and search “Meals and Dining Options.” Or stop by a nursing station or Guest Services Desk to request a hard copy. For direct access to the map, visit ufhealth.org/sites/default/files/media/maps/uf-health-gainesville-dining-options.pdf.
