Weekly Message Digest Has A New Look

DGSOM WMD twitter logo

The Weekly Message Digest was introduced to the David Geffen School of Medicine Community on October 12, 2006.  Since then we have published 571 editions with over 9,500 individual listings. After nearly 10 years, with a few minor changes, we thought it would be a good idea to update the Digest.

The Digest was created to provide the community with a weekly update to various happenings at the school.  The first part of the email was a listing of all postings in the current edition of the Digest followed by a more comprehensive description of each postings.  All postings are hyper-linked to take you to our website, http://digest.dgsom.ucla.edu where you can read more about a particular posting or be encourgaged to post your own event/announcement.  

What's Changed

We have removed the detailed descriptions of each posting to make a more compact and "digestable" Digest.  All of this information can now be found on the Web Version of the Weekly Message Digest: http://digest.dgsom.ucla.edu.  We have also added a new feature to make the email more visually appealing.  Starting with the edition on August 8th, all editions will now include an image.

  • Emails now include a customized image that will be updated each week
  • Support for header captions added
  • Support for a hyperlinked header added for more information when available
  • Removed detailed description of each listing

What's Remained

You can still submit your event or announcement at http://digest.dgsom.ucla.edu and every posting is considered for inclusion on the Digital Signs located throughout South Campus.  

  • Each new article added to an edition is preceded by a "new" icon
  • Events still have a "download to your calendar" feature
  • Individuals can upload custom graphics for their announcement or event
  • Individuals can upload a pdf explaining their event or announcement in greater detail
  • Each postings is submitted to our twitter accout at https://twitter.com/ucladgsomdigest
  • Publication still occurs at 10am every Tuesday. 

We encourage your feedback.  Please let us know what you think.
