April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month:  (awareness month color is teal)

Break the Silence, End the Violence.

  • 1 in 5 women and 1 in 33 men will be sexually assaulted during college.
  • Among women who were sexually assaulted, 80-90% knew their perpetrator.
  • It is helpful to tell a survivor explicitly, “I believe you”. It’s often unhelpful to ask survivors why they made certain choices (e.g., “Why did you leave the party with him/her?”)

 

The Sexual Assault Crisis Service (SACS) at IU Health Center is sponsoring THE CLOSELINE PROJECT T-SHIRT DISPLAY. The Clothesline Project shines a light on the prevalence of sexual violence and honors victims and survivors. It gives power back to those who have experienced violence, educates our campus and breaks the silence surrounding sexual violence. It gives survivors a sense of support, knowing they are not alone in their experiences. Lastly, it encourages students, staff, faculty, and community members to engage in social justice activism.  T-shirts will be displayed April 24 & 25, 10am-3pm & April 26, 10am-12pm on the IU Health Center front lawn.

Stop the Bleed at Indiana University

Announcing a new student organization: Stop the Bleed at Indiana University

Stop the Bleed at IU is looking for new members to help increase its community impact. Stop the Bleed is a health initiative to improve awareness and general public education on traumatic bleeding control. The program was started by the Department of Homeland Security in response to recent mass shootings and is meant to prepare potential bystanders to save lives in emergencies. By starting a chapter, we hope to improve our community’s level of emergency preparedness.

As an organization we plan to distribute bleeding control kits throughout Bloomington and offer training sessions for students, faculty, or other Bloomington organizations who are interested in learning these bleeding control techniques.

Want to join? Send an email briefly stating your interest to stopthebleediu@gmail.com

This is a great opportunity for pre-health students to gain experience leading a community public health project. Executive positions are available.

For more information please visit https://www.bleedingcontrol.org/

UC Pharmacology MS Program

MS in Molecular, Cellular and Biochemical Pharmacology program at the University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine.

Our program is focused on student success by introducing them to alternative scientific career opportunities!  The curriculum has a special emphasis in Preclinical & Clinical Drug Safety; a required component of the FDA’s drug approval process. 

Due to the diversity of our students’ interests, our program works diligently to introduce students to new experiences in drug safety while providing a solid foundation in pharmacology. Our 1-yr non-thesis and 2-yr thesis MS options offer several opportunities for students to explore their scientific interests while discovering new career paths.  One unique aspect of our program are networking opportunities with industry experts through special lectures along with several trips to regional industry.    Our students also gain hands-on research experiences by working with expert UC and Cincinnati Children’s faculty. About half of our students use our program as a gap year experience, preparing for advanced academic training in the life sciences (MD, PhD, DMD, PharmD, DVM), with our remaining graduates employed in academia or with contract research organizations associated with the pharmaceutical industry.

Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year will be accepted until July 1, 2019 or until the class is full.  Early applications are also encouraged.

More information can be found on our website: www.med.uc.edu/UCpharmacology.
