Home » News » Authors Showcase Features NUHS Faculty Research

June 20 marked the first Authors Showcase  at the Lombard, Illinois campus of National University of Health Sciences (NUHS). The Showcase  is a collaborative project of the Learning Research Center and the research department, offering a face-to-face opportunity for students and the campus community to learn about faculty research topics, findings, and methods. Although the event took place mid-week, the display was available for viewing in the library through National University’s Homecoming weekend, June 21 through 23.

The original concept came about during a yearly planning meeting of University departments. “Dr. Cramer, dean of research, said that one of the goals of the department was to connect faculty authors with students to discuss the research they published, and share their expertise about how the process happens,” said Pat Genardo, NUHS library director. “The library already offers a location for highlighting published articles, so it was a great opportunity to expand the concept, and for the two departments to work together.”

When NUHS faculty, staff or students have written an article, the library spotlights the accomplishment in a special display located in the library. “While faculty are usually aware of it, we believe it’s good for the student body, alumni, future students, and visitors to see this scholarly activity,” said Genardo.

“The benefits to students in being part of a university dedicated to research are profound, both in academic enrichment and in preparing for the future,” said Gregory Cramer, NUHS dean of research. “We’ve integrated the use of research into our curriculum and campus culture university-wide.”

National University remains devoted to expanding its research into a wider variety of topics in integrative medicine.

“We’re always working to create new projects where experts from different medical specialties can collaborate together. Research is one more way National University strives to remain a leader in academic excellence, and broaden the knowledge needed to improve patient care–in all medical professions,” Cramer said.

The library offers more than 15,000 book titles; 140 current print journal subscriptions; over 100,000 electronic journals, e-books and streaming videos; and 32 bibliographic databases in a collection supporting NUHS programs in chiropractic, naturopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, oriental medicine, massage therapy, and biological sciences.
