(Sept. 30, 2013) -- The UTSA Employee Occupational Health and Wellness Center has a new home in Bauerle Road Garage Suite 1.102, one floor above the ground floor in a space formerly occupied by the C-Store.
>> As part of the Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management team, the center staff invites the UTSA community to stop by between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 2 for healthy refreshments and to learn about services at the new office.
The center will be ready to serve faculty and staff enrolled in UTSA Occupational Health and Wellness programs. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, with staff including Rebecca Stenberg, R.N., occupational health coordinator, and Sarah Wright, office assistant II.

The office houses an exam room, immunization station, workspace for Occupational Health and Wellness, receptionist station, waiting area and a computerized health station and blood pressure kiosk available to all employees who wish to come by and check their vital signs.
We are very excited to have the enlarged space for use by our contract doctor and nurse to perform occupational health exams and fitness tests, and administer vaccines in a comfortable environment. Additionally, Occupational Health and Wellness Manager Kristee Phelps and Wellness Assistant Anna Racelis will use the workspace and exam room to provide health and wellness assessments.
For employees who prefer the west campus location, wellness assessments will continue at Support Facilities Building A Room 1.102, adjacent to the Sculpture and Ceramics Graduate Studio. Additionally, wellness assessments scheduled for employees at the Downtown and Hemisfair Park campuses will continue.

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.
At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.
Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.
With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.
Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property - for Texas, the nation and the world.
To be a premier public research university, providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.
We encourage an environment of dialogue and discovery, where integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration and innovation are fostered.
