Holly Goe, a registered nurse, has been named vice president of Indiana University Health Cancer Centers, a large group of oncologists that is part of the IU Health hospital network. Goe has been serving as interim vice president since October after being named the program’s executive director for clinical operations last April. Goe will work with Dr. Doug Schwartzentruber, the medical director for cancer services at IU Health, to retool how the entire IU Health system manages cancer patients. Before coming to IU Health last year, Goe worked at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pittsburgh, Pa., and before that, worked at Parkview Health in Fort Wayne.

Dr. Douglas Wallace, a cardiothoracic surgeon, has joined St. Vincent Medical Group in Lafayette. He earned his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of California,Davis, and his medical degree from Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md.

The Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center has added six new researchers: Dr. Gary Dunnington, who studies surgery outcomes for breast cancer patients; Reginald Hill, a researcher who studies how inflammation contributes to pancreatic cancer; Janaiah Kota, who studies the role of micro RNAs (ribonucleic acids) in cancers and develops microRNA-based cancer drugs; Dr. Sophie Paczesny, who studies complications from bone marrow transplants; Jenifer Prosperi, who studies breast cancer development; and Dr. Chandru Sundaram, whose research focuses on the outcomes of laparoscopic and robotic surgery for kidney and prostate cancers.

  1. A Tilted Kilt at a water park themed hotel? Who planned that one? I guess the Dad's need something to do while the kids are on the water slides.

  2. Don't come down on the fair for offering drinks. This is a craft and certainly one that belongs in agriculture due to ingredients. And for those worrying about how much you can drink. I'm sure it's more to do with liability than anything else. They don't want people suing for being over served. If you want a buzz, do a little pre-drinking before you go.

  3. I don't drink but go into this "controlled area" so my friend can drink. They have their 3 drink limit and then I give my friend my 3 drink limit. How is the fair going to control this very likely situation????

  4. I feel the conditions of the alcohol sales are a bit heavy handed, but you need to realize this is the first year in quite some time that beer & wine will be sold at the fair. They're starting off slowly to get a gauge on how it will perform this year - I would assume if everything goes fine that they relax some of the limits in the next year or couple of years. That said, I think requiring the consumption of alcohol to only occur in the beer tent is a bit much. That is going to be an awkward situation for those with minors - "Honey, I'm getting a beer... Ok, sure go ahead... Alright see you in just a min- half an hour."

  5. This might be an effort on the part of the State Fair Board to manage the risk until they get a better feel for it. However, the blanket notion that alcohol should not be served at "family oriented" events is perhaps an oversimplification. and not too realistic. For 15 years, I was a volunteer at the Indianapolis Air Show, which was as family oriented an event as it gets. We sold beer donated by Monarch Beverage Company and served by licensed and trained employees of United Package Liquors who were unpaid volunteers. And where did that money go? To central Indiana children's charities, including Riley Hospital for Children! It's all about managing the risk.
