Rie Munoz donates print

Juneau artist Rie Mu-oz is helping the University of Alaska Southeast Noyes Pavilion project by donating 100 prints of a recent watercolor entitled, "Ice Skating - Juneau." The matted print will be given as a thank you to those donating $1,000 or more to the Noyes Pavilion campaign.

The pavilion is being funded through private donations

Munoz began painting Alaska vignettes soon after arriving in Juneau in 1950. She was awarded an honorary doctor of humanities degree from UAS in 1999. In 2000 she was named Artist of the Year at the Pacific Rim Art Exhibition in Seattle.

The pavilion will be used by both the campus and community for performances and presentations. The covered, open-air facility is to be built in the trees above the UAS parking lots and will cost about $525,000. To date, $290,000 has been raised, including $110,000 from the John and Lily Noyes family. John Noyes was Alaska Adjutant General when he was killed in a plane crash near Nome in 1956.

Co-chairs of the Noyes Pavilion fund-raising campaign are Laraine Derr, Katie Corbus and Gordon Evans.

MCMA to hold meeting

Rae Dodd and Freda Rogers are founding members of Mendenhall Chapter Medical Assistants, a local medical-assisting education organization. Dodd and Rogers are hosting an evening of discussion and ideas to re-establish the local chapter. CMA's, certified medical assistants, who are interested in maintaining their AAMA national certification are invited to attend. Twelve hours of continuing education annually are required for a CMA's certification to remain current. Continuing education credits are available for attendees to this meeting.

CMA's are multi-skilled medical personnel who are cross-trained to work in a variety of areas. They are clinically trained to assist in outpatient medical procedures, handle office administration and constantly interact with patients.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical assisting will be one of the fastest-growing professions through the year 2008. One of the reasons for this is that more health care is being delivered in outpatient or ambulatory settings such as physicians' offices, group practices and clinics. Medical assistants are the only allied health professionals who are specifically trained to work in these settings.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 in classroom 204 of Bartlett Regional Hospital's administration building. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, visit the AAMA web site at or contact them at 800-228-2262. Rae Dodd can be reached at 586-4868 for further information.
