About Dr. Kozmenko

Dr. Kozmenko, MD, CHSE-A, & Director of the Parry Center for Clinical Simulation is the winner of our 2022 READ poster honor. He was photographed with what he describes as his current favorite book, Thinking, Fast and Slow, written by a Nobel Prize winner, Daniel Kahneman.  The author examines in-depth the intuitive (quick, System 1) and analytic (slow, System 2) thinking mechanisms and how they interact with each other. "I think this book is a must read for everyone who is curious how people think and make decisions." 


         Wegner Library READ Poster Award

The American Library Association developed the first "READ" poster over forty years ago, and numerous libraries have since used them to encourage reading and celebrate accomplishments in their communities. In 2022, the Wegner Health Sciences Library created the annual READ Poster Award to highlight the importance of information literacy and honor the library's many supporters.

The Wegner Library READ Poster Award recognizes at least one library supporter each year by featuring their image on a poster and displaying it in the library. Nominations are accepted at any time, but they should be submitted no later than the last Friday in February for that year's award. Winners are announced in the fall of that year. Anyone who is a regular user of Wegner Library's resources, or who supports the library in any way, is eligible for nomination.
