    The AU Chorus is open to all students regardless of musical background. If you can sing, we want you. If you've always wanted to sing but are a little unsure, we will teach you!

    University Chorus is a 2 credit course MUSC 271 and satisfies part of the Arts credit in General Education. The choir meets on Monday from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm and Wednesday from 5:20 pm - 6:50 pm. Chorus can be taken as an overload with no additional charge. To do this, you will need to get an overload form and signatures, but it's really easy. The group is also open to faculty and community members.

    Singing in a choir has been shown to relieve stress and help people to find a community.

    Do you know what HIPAA stands for? Do you know what HIPAA protects?

    HIPAA is the acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act that was passed by Congress in 1996. HIPAA requires the protection and confidential handling of protected health information.

    The HIPAA Privacy regulations require health care providers and organizations, as well as their business associates, to develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared. This applies to all forms of PHI, including paper, oral, and electronic, etc. Furthermore, only the minimum health information necessary to conduct business is to be used or shared.

    As a Supervisor if you become aware that your employee needs time away from work due to a medical condition for themselves or their family members, the employee does not have to disclose what that medical condition is to you. You should refer them to Kayleigh Misner, in Human Resources, for proper handling of Family Medical Leave Act, Short Term Disability, and/or Paid Family Leave.

    If the employee shares that they are needing time off for surgery to you, as their Supervisor, under the HIPAA laws you have no right to share that with anyone else, besides Human Resources. That is a breach of HIPAA confidentiality and can be punishable by law. If it is in email form, you should not forward the email on to anyone else, including your boss, only Human Resources should receive this email.

    You cannot discuss with your other employees that the employee will be off for surgery, unless the employee explicitly tells you that you may discuss it with the team. Of course, if the employee wishes to discuss his/her own medical information with others, that is not an employer violation.
