Amber Hollingsworth and Patrick Holmes

Last month, I attended the OHSU Talent Show during the Tuesday farmers market in front of Mackenzie Hall. As I watched my colleagues perform their unique talents on stage, I felt very proud to work for an organization that puts some good ol' fashioned fun into the workplace. The event was a great morale booster, evident by the many smiling people in attendance. The Talent Show was also an excellent way to bring the OHSU community together. In my experience of coordinating special events, I know there must have been many hours dedicated to the planning of this successful occasion. Patrick Holmes and Amber Hollingsworth went above and beyond their daily work to dream up and execute this great showcase of employee talent. It's great to have employees so dedicated to engaging their colleagues and helping us all connect to the place we work.
