Clarification for online parking registration
KU Medical Center recently announced its new online parking registration system that will allow you to register and update your vehicle information online anytime. By now, you should have received a personalized email with login instructions. You need to click on the link contained in your personalized email and create your parking account by July 1, which is when the new parking system will be implemented.
Here are a few points of clarification:
- The new parking system will go into effect starting July 1. You must have your car registered online by then or you will not be able to access your parking area.
- Until July 1, vehicles will still need to display the current permit. Effective July 1, your employee badge will give you access to your parking lot or garage (Bluff, Olathe or Cambridge).
- When you register, you will be assigned to yellow initially. Parking Services will then confirm your registration and you will receive an email confirmation of your assigned parking area (which will be the same as you currently have).
- If you have lost your personalized email, you may request a new email be sent. You may also go to the Online Parking System and sign up as a new user.
- If you have questions, please contact Kevin Rowald, associate director of parking services and transportation, at 913-588-5062 or Isaac Kilgore, parking administrator, at 913-945-8240.

Volunteers wanted for annual pow wow
It's almost time for the 8th Annual Health and Wellness Pow Wow, sponsored by the Center for American Indian Community Health and American Indian Health & Research Alliance. It takes many people to make this event successful, so organizers are seeking volunteers to help.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Health fair – Although the health fair is staffed with many people with medical backgrounds, the event still needs volunteers to help with the participants. Volunteers will take blood pressure, assist participants with surveys, and assist medical staff.
- Kids craft booth – Volunteers will work with children doing arts and crafts during the pow wow. This is the third year for this booth and it's a big hit with not only the kids but also the adults.
- General volunteer – Craft vendors are an important part of the pow wow. As a service to the vendors, volunteers will help set up their booths, get food, or provide breaks.
- Food booth – This year's food booth will not feature typical pow wow food. It will feature healthy alternatives instead.
- Dancer/drum registration – At this registration table, volunteers will help participants register.
Volunteers are needed for the following work times:
Friday, May 2, 6–9 p.m.
Saturday, May 3, 1–4 p.m. and 4–7 p.m.
