The centerpiece of the first floor is the Edward & Shirley Shils Clinic, a new predoctoral teaching clinic that replaces both Myers and Paletz clinics and occupy the southwest side of the building. The reception area for the new clinic will be named in recognition of gifts from Drs. Richard Copell (D’80) and David Tarica (D’84), co-chairs of the Evans Building Centennial Renaissance campaign.
