Dr. Michelle Barber is going to shave her head!
On Saturday, April 26 at 1 p.m. at Modern Woodmen Park, I'm shaving my head to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation to support childhood cancer research. That's right, I'm going to go BALD! Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers. My goal is to raise AT LEAST $1,000. For me, it's only hair. For kids with cancer, it's a fight for life. Please, please help! Every three minutes a child somewhere in the world finds out that they have cancer, so remember that your donation is going to a great cause. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made through this link www.stbaldricks.org/participants/DrBGoesBald
or given to Dr. Barber directly.

Thanks!
Michelle Barber, D.C.
Assistant Professor, Life Sciences

UPDATE: A group of about 100 students, calling themselves “Barber’s Baldies,” sold T-shirts and raised $1,500 for Dr. Barber’s cause. They were supported by faculty and staff and surprised her in class on April 1 to present a big check for $1,500. Check out the photos at

New - Commercial Real Estate and Business Insurance 

Presenters: Pete Stopulos, Ruhl & Ruhl Realtors, and Tim Flanagan, State Farm Insurance 

Date: Tuesday, April 29, from 4-8 p.m. in the Business Center Classroom

Before setting up practice, many new D.C.s have to overcome the hurdles associated with procuring their new facilities. In this module, industry professionals will help guide students' general understanding of the business of commercial real estate. Communicating with the appropriate language and terminology will serve to lessen those obstacles and empower you to make a more sound and informed decision.

All businesses are not created equal, and protecting your business assets requires an understanding of available platforms of coverage. This module will feature a local business insurance agent to explain the types of coverage required for practice and explain why workman's comp is only a piece of the puzzle. Understanding how those differences dictate unique plans of attack with regard to asset protection is vital.

Avoid overdue Library fines—plus additional fees and delays in registration. San Jose Campus branch manager librarian Roseann Erwin reminds students to check their Palmer email frequently. In addition to system-generated "courtesy notices" (sent when checked-out Library items are three days from their "due date"), you will also receive "overdue" notices as well as fine totals for late materials. Failure to settle fines in a timely manner will delay your registration status. The Library submits a quarterly "holds" list to the Registrar with the names of students who have outstanding fines or fees, which restricts your ability to register for classes, until the outstanding fines and fees have been paid. Avoid any inconvenient delays—pay your outstanding Library fees today. If you have any questions, see Roseann in the Library.

Students can renew books via the Palmer web page. Go to "www.palmer.edu" and choose "Libraries" under the Academic listing section of the front page, and then click on "Catalog/Databases" from the menu options on the left side of the page. Once you are in the WEST catalog, use the log-in feature on the upper-right portion of the page. For "User ID" enter the barcode number on your Palmer student ID card, or your matriculation number. Your password is "changeme" until you’ve created your own password. Once you’ve established an account, you will see the online renewal option.

If you have any questions regarding the online renewal process, please see Roseann Erwin, San Jose Campus branch manager librarian.
