      Staff nominations for the A Child's Voice Award are now being accepted for
      both the professional and national level.  The criteria for the
      professional staff level winner is: Recipient must be a member in good
      standing of the professional staff, exhibit outstanding efforts toward
      child advocacy and exhibit leadership in the development of advocacy
      programs that benefit children in the Miami Valley either directly or
      indirectly. Any Dayton Children's employee, volunteer or member of the
      professional staff can nominate a professional staff member for this
      award.  The nomination package should describe in detail the
      accomplishments of the nominee. The professional staff office must receive
      the nomination package by noon on February 8, 2008. The same criteria are
      also used for the national level. If you wish to nominate someone for the
      national level award, please provide a nomination package that describes
      the contributions of the nominee in sufficient detail. If you have any
      questions, contact Jeffery Adam, MD, at 937-496-2600 or Thomas Murphy, MD,

      It is time to issue a call for proposals for Dayton Children's research
      grants.  The deadline for submission of the grants is February 1, 2008. 
      Five copies (paper) or one electronic copy of the proposal should be
      submitted.  The proposal will be forwarded to the chair of the research
      committee by February 15, 2008.  Review of all proposals will be completed
      by May 1, 2008.  The committee will use the standard NIH scoring system to

      As a result of some changes at Dayton Children’s in the past few months,
      we are re-examining the policies that are applicable for direct admissions
      from both community physicians and hospital clinics.  It is essential that
      if we are unable to place the patient in a bed in a timely manner (as may
      happen during the busy season), that we have a place to put the child and
      his/her family where the clinical condition of the child can be monitored.
       Stay tuned for more details.  Questions?  Call Cindy Asher at

        Professional staff banquet is scheduled for March 7, 2008.  This is an

        Award.  Stay tuned for invitations.
