The Eye Institute (TEI) of Salus University held its annual door decorating contest last week. The staff of TEI were encouraged to decorate their office doors in all sorts of holiday get-up in hopes for first place bragging rights and prizes.

  • First – Drs. Katharine Funari and Andrew Do for their well-designed engineering marvel of a fireplace, with a mantel, and Santa coming down the chimney.
  • Second – William Feinbloom Rehabilitation Service for their exquisitely decorated and easy-to-read door with a “Light Up the Holidays” theme.
  • Third – Optometric Clinical Affairs for their timely theme of the cute and cheerful ugly Christmas sweater theme.
Also all decked out in their holiday finest, employees from all three Salus clinics, as well as the University itself, enjoyed the annual holiday party on the afternoon of Friday, December 14.
During the party, staff service awards were announced.
