It’s a classic image for heart health, the zigzag lines of an ECG, or electrocardiogram.

Any chance this change will include updating listings to accurate information? i.e. Work Area for Nursing and Patient Education is listed as St. Francis Building 1 under my name when it is actually Professional Arts Building 3. And it would be nice to have a person’s actual credentials listed. i.e. La Crosse Nursing Education Specialist has credentials of MSN, RN and it does not show in the directory.
