Sylvia PeralSylvia Peral has been selected as the Department of Medicine Employee of the Month for November 2018! Sylvia is a Program Manager in the Division of Preventive Medicine. She was notified by Dr. Isabel Scarinci (Professor), Anitra Baylor (Division Administrator) and Department of Medicine representatives, Shane Wiley (Executive Administrator), Cindy Joiner (Assistant Vice Chair for Research) and Doug Royal (Personnel Generalist).

Sylvia has been with the Division for several years and is a valued member of the team. She is a dependable, efficient and very productive employee, contributing positivity in her work through helping others. Her primary responsibility is evaluating large multi-site partnerships. Sylvia also conducts qualitative interviews—a skill she took the initiative to learn on her own. For many projects, she has to spend time out of the office working in underserved communities, which requires flexibility to adapt to all types of situations.

Sylvia always projects a warm, cheerful attitude and lifts the spirits of those around her. Her steady and cooperative manner helps ground the team when things seem to be spiraling out of control, and she is consistently able to improvise in any given circumstance. Sylvia treats everyone with respect and goes above and beyond to provide support to anyone she comes in contact with—in the Division, Department and the community.

Please join us in congratulating Sylvia for being selected as Department of Medicine Employee of the Month for November 2018! A reception will be held in her honor at 4:00 p.m. on November 15 in MT Room 634.
