An election is scheduled May 4 to elect three members to the board of directors of the Temple Health and Bioscience Economic Development District for three-year terms.
The seats up for election are held by Gregg Strasburger, Thomas Baird and John Keilla. All have indicated they will seek re-election.
The election was called for during the board of directors’ January meeting.
Dr. Damir Nizamutdinov has filed paperwork for a spot on the ballot.
The district will hold an open house 3-5 p.m. Thursday at its lab and office facility at 1802 S. First St.
During the event the bioscience district will launch its new website.
“This is a unique opportunity to preview Temple Health and Bioscience District’s new website, to hear the latest announcements for 2019, and to tour the facility,” said Tami Annable, executive director of Temple Health and Bioscience District.
Individuals from across Central Texas and the bioscience community are invited to learn about all the resources available at the Bioscience District, including the new and improved 3D printer in the common lab.
WashSense, the first tenant in the facility, has completed its newest installation, which is showing a 10 percent infection reduction in the first 30 days, post installation.
WashSense Hand Hygiene system was developed to address the issue of health care-associated infections. The touchless device is installed at hand-washing sinks and hand sanitizer stations. Bluetooth technology measures the hand washing and provides administrators with group and department performances and overall facility patterns.
The next Lunch and Learn will be noon-1 p.m. Tuesday at the Bioscience District, 1802 S. First St.
Daniel Staab, co-founder of Starling Culture, will present “Responsible Communication is the Catalyst for Igniting Your Startup.”
