Timothy Quill ’79M (Res) (see ’80).


Bob Smith (Flw), professor of medicine at Michigan State University, writes that he’s the lead author of Smith’s Patient-Centered Interviewing: An Evidence-Based Method (Third Edition) (McGraw-Hill), and that Timothy Quill ’76M (MD), ’79M (Res), director of the Center for Ethics, Humanities, and Palliative Care at the Medical Center, wrote the foreword.


Marcia Scherer (MS), ’97W (PhD) has published two books on assistive technologies for people with disabilities: Assistive Technologies and Other Supports for People with Brain Impairment (Springer) and Assistive Technology Assessment Handbook (CRC Press). Marcia is the president of the Institute for Matching Person & Technology, a professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Medical Center, and a project director for Syracuse University’s Burton Blatt Institute and its Center for Effective Rehabilitation Technology.


Kimberly Young (Pdc), a psychologist, writes that she’s published her first novel, The Eighth Wonder (AuthorHouse). Taking place in Bradford, Pa., around the Kinzua Bridge—built in 1882, and once the world’s longest and tallest railroad bridge—the story “portrays a delicate balance of romance and a life-changing affair that leads to a bittersweet ending.”
