EDITORS/HEALTH REPORTERS PLEASE NOTE:
UA CAMPUSWIDE HOLIDAY CLOSURE (Dec. 21-Jan. 2)
AFFECTS AHSC OFFICE OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you probably are aware, for the ninth consecutive year the University of Arizona will close for the holidays. The campuswide closure begins the afternoon of Friday, Dec. 21, and the University will resume business Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Therefore, as in past years during the closure, the Office of Public Affairs at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center will not be regularly staffed.

However, in case of emergency -- as always -- the office has a staff member on-call who can be reached by calling the University Medical Center page operator, 694-6000, and asking them to page the AHSC Public Affairs representative on call.

For patient condition updates, please call the UMC page operator and ask that the clinical supervisor be paged.

Thanks, and have a happy and safe holiday season!
