BACK ON CAMPUS—OuTing most of the time Melvin Lyon has worked in Medical
Center Housekeeping, she has been out at Teer House. Now she divides her time
between that northern-most medical center building (on N. Roxboro Road) and the
Sealey C. Mudd Building. A Duke employee for 13 years, she said, I really like
working here, and I've made many friends." With these friends she often shares tips
on growing plants, as well as cuttings from her own plants with which her green
thumb is so successful. (Photo by John Becton)
Things Go Better with Secretary Meetings
(Continued from page 3)
kept up-to-date on changes as they
affect them. The secretaries are able
to come together on a regular basis
and discuss whatever problems they
are encountering in the performance
of their jobs. We hope they can reach
a satisfactory solution to those
problems through joint effort."
Each secretary has been provided
with a folder in which material
circulated at the meetings is kept for
future reference, Adams said. Topics
covered so far include procedures
regarding the mail service, telephone
billing, IBM sheets, travel vouchers
When possible, guest speakers are
invited. These have included a
representative of the Copying
Center, who talked about the
benefits of using their services and
explained the most efficient ways to
do so; Sue McDuffie, personnel
training representative, who talked
about various personnel policies and
rules at Duke; and Charlotte
Hunnings, assistant manager of the
Office of Sponsored Programs, who
answered questions about problems
encountered by secretaries in that
area of their work.
Information to Pass On
"While most of the information
relayed at these meetings is directly
concerned with the secretaries'
work," Adams said, "it also provides
them with general information that
they can pass on to their fellow
workers on such things as time cards
and changes in official holidays."
"I think it's great," said Lila
Munday, a secretary in the
department for nine years. "There
are always changes and this is a good
way to report them to everybody."
"We're scattered all over the
medical center," she added, "and we
don't get to see each other except in
meetings like these."
Dr. Peter McMenamin, instructor
in health administration and
economics at the University of North
Carolina, will speak on “Evaluating
the Effectiveness of PSROs" on
Tuesday, March 29, at 3:30 p.m. in
Room 224, Social Sciences Building.
McMenamin's talk is part of the
ongoing Duke Colloquia on Health
Policy sponsored by the Institute of
Policy Sciences and Public Affairs.
