The campus is invited to a retirement tea for Rob Baum, who has worked at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine for 25 years. The tea will be held Monday, May 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Private Dining Room C on the third floor of University Tower.

Baum started his career at the medical center as a respiratory therapist from 1990-1996. He then decided to make a career change and took the next two years to get his physician assistant degree from UNMC.

In 1999, Baum became a physician assistant for UNMC/Nebraska Medicine in the department of internal medicine, division of diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism (DEM).

"He has since become one of the Diabetes Center's most popular providers, lending a compassionate ear for patient concerns and spending time to help patients figure out how to live a healthier lifestyle," said Lynn Mack, M.D., associate professor, internal medicine. "He has been a role model for good health, walking or riding his bicycle to work every day and working with the dieticians on healthy meal plans for himself and patients.

"He will be greatly missed by everyone, but especially by me, as Rob provided follow-up care for my general endocrine patients, and he has assisted me in the joint High Risk OB-Endocrinology Clinic since 2005."

Light refreshments will be served. Jennifer Larsen, M.D., vice chancellor for research, and Cyrus Desouza, M.B.B.S., professor, internal medicine, and division chief of DEM, will deliver brief remarks around 11:30 a.m.
