Older Women with Type 2 Diabetes Have Different Patterns of Blood Use in their Brains

Dr. Stacey Gorniak's groundbreaking study on older women with Type 2 diabetes is the first to point to changes in blood use in the brain as the primary reason for diabetes-related deficits in motor function. The study found that the brains of older women with Type 2 diabetes do not use as much oxygenated blood as those who don’t have the disease - suggesting that factors outside of nerve damage due to Type 2 diabetes mellitus, such as impaired cortical blood use, contribute significantly to both sensory and motor deficits in people with diabetes.

Should We Play? Two College Football Teams Have Very Different Answers

Dr Billy Hawkins was interviewed by the New York Times for an article on collegiate football during the covid19 pandemic. Check out the article below. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/01/sports/ncaafootball/coronavirus-college-football-hbcus-clemson.html

Morehouse, the first scholarship football program to cancel its season, cited the coronavirus’s disproportionate impact on Black people. Clemson has insisted on continuing despite 37 positive tests.

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and the Department of Health and Human Performance stand with the African American community and all other oppressed communities against systemic, social and racial oppression. We assert that racism, discrimination, classism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other weapons of divisive hate have no place on college campuses or in civil society, domestic or abroad.

We, collectively, are deeply saddened by the violent, untimely and senseless murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and countless other Black people in the United States. Our hearts are heavy, our heads are bowed, and our knees are bent in solidarity with their families and others that have experienced systematic oppression since the founding of our nation.

As producers and disseminators of knowledge, we embrace the obligation to prepare our students for the richly diverse world that they will inherit as critical-thinking members of society. Further, our obligation is to prepare them to interact with people from diverse backgrounds and to challenge epistemologies, policies and dogma that promote vitriolic attacks on difference.

We are committed and urge all of you to be active in the struggle to eradicate injustice everywhere in order to foster a world that is more loving, peaceful, kind, compassionate and just.

Today over 40 students and faculty from the Dietetic Internship Program and the Master of Athletic Training Program came together for our 2nd Annual Interprofessional Education Event. This year looked a little different (virtual), but thanks to our wonderful students it was a success! Jennifer Brittle, Kirsten White, Chelsea York, and Ray Spicer did an amazing job educating us on how Athletic Trainers and Dietitians can work together for improved patient care.
