One on One: Sandra Mahoney, administrator, Christopher House, Worcester
Worcester Telegram & Gazette 01/24/2016
Worcester resident Sandra Mahoney [M.H.A. 89], a Fellow of the American College of Health Care Administrators, Massachusetts chapter, was named the nursing homes second administrator in November. I had been working as a dietitian in a number of hospitals, and had been part of several mergers and had to lay people off, which I decided I did not want to do anymore. I had earned my masters degree in health care administration from Clark University, and because of the licensing rules at the time, I was eligible to sit for the licensing exam, which I passed. I took a job as a marketing admissions coordinator for a nursing home in Littleton, which was a great opportunity to learn how nursing homes worked.

9 scientific ways having a child influences your success
Business Insider 01/23/2016
When researchers out of Clark University [cited article co-authored by Laura Graves, GSOM ] and the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina, studied how managers' commitments to children affected their work performance, they concluded that being a committed parent can actually improve a manager's performance because child-rearing develops skills that are also useful at work ... The researchers suggest that raising a family helps develop skills like negotiating, compromising, conflict resolution, patience, and multitasking, and that family experiences provide managers with positive feelings that carry over to the workplace and facilitate performance. This story ran in a number of media outlets, including, Northwest Florida Daily News, Business Insider Indonesia, Mass. Political News, and the Sussex Countian (Del.).

The birth of the pill – how four pioneers reinvented sex and launched a revolution
Chemistry World 01/22/2016
The birth of the pill is about the four pioneers of the contraceptive pill, namely Margaret Sanger, a campaigner for womens rights, Gregory Pincus, a physiologist, Katherine McCormick, a wealthy widow who financed much of the work, and John Rock, a Catholic gynaecologist. What they achieved is remarkable, particularly considering how little money and resource there was for the research. ... The star of the book is undoubtedly Pincus. Sacked from Harvard, ostensibly because his work on reproduction was so controversial, he briefly worked at Clark University, US, then set up the Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology.
