Upcoming Conference on Integrative Pediatric Medicine

The Strauss-Wisneski Indigenous and Integrative Medicine Collection will be co-sponsoring an upcoming conference on pediatric integrative medicine.  Health for the Whole Child: An Integrative Approach will take place on Wednesday, Oct 30, 2019 in Mt. Oxford Auditorium at Children’s Hospital Colorado.  This conference will include lectures, interactive panels, and breakout sessions.

Pediatric integrative health focuses on the enhancement of well-being of the whole child and uses a collaborative approach to health promotion, disease prevention, healing, and rehabilitation. The model builds on the elements of positive lifestyle habits, and other tools, to support the health of both child and family unit.  Join us to learn more about integrative health, an approach that offers expanded treatment options and complements conventional therapies.  Integrative health has the potential to revitalize meaning in practice, support our young patients, and enhance practitioner satisfaction.

Early Bird registration of $40 is available through October 16, 2019 and will increase to $50 after that date.  An online-only option is also available for $25.00.  All providers are welcome to attend as well anyone with an interest in integrative medicine.  CME, CNE, and CPE credit will be available.

This event is made possible by a grant from the Bard Family Foundation.

Fitzsimons Army Base Photographs in Mountain Scholar

Strauss library just added the Fitzsimons Army Base Photographs to our digital repository, Mountain Scholar.

This is a collection of photographs taken of the Anschutz Medical Campus prior to the University of Colorado moving here. The photos show the campus when it was the Fitzsimons Army Base.

U.S. Army General Hospital No. 21 opened in 1918 during World War I to treat soldiers with tuberculosis. In 1941, a new building named Fitzsimons General Hospital was later renamed Fitzsimons Army Hospital and then was deactivated in 1996 and officially closed in 1999. Today the hospital is known as the Fitzsimons Building (or Building 500) on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

You can see the digitized images in Mountain Scholar. The images are originally slides, that have been digitized by the staff here at Strauss Library!

Please enjoy the collection, and contact the library if you have any questions.

Welcome to Sam Kennefick and Ellie Svoboda!

In June, we had 2 new Graduate Assistants join the Education and Reference Department. Read more about them below and say hi next time you’re on AskUs!

Sam Kennefick is a Graduate Student Intern in the Education and Reference Department. She will be helping to answer reference questions via AskUs!, teaching courses, and working on fun projects here at the library. Sam attends San Jose State’s online MLIS program and is very excited to start her new library career! Prior to working at Strauss Health Sciences Library, Sam taught science at the K-12 level for four years. When not working or attending school, you’ll find Sam hiking with her dog, Nala, traveling, and rock climbing with her partner.

What is your position title and what is your interest in libraries?

I am the Open Educational Resources Graduate Assistant. I love that libraries are dedicated to connecting people to information and are welcoming spaces for everyone.

What do you like most about it so far?

I’m enjoying learning how to search for things efficiently. It is also exciting to be a part of the OER initiatives on the Anschutz campus and exploring the amazing resources that are freely available to the public.

What is your educational background?

I have bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Denver and an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College in Vermont. I will be pursuing my MLIS at the University of Denver starting this September.

What are some other jobs you have had?

For the last seven years I have taught high school students at Compass Montessori. I taught subjects as diverse as math, English, film, college prep, play writing, screenwriting, and theatre.

What’s an interesting tidbit that you would like others to know about you?

My last name means freedom in Czech as well as several other Slavic languages.

How do you spend your free time?

I enjoy baking and cooking and throwing dinner parties. I am a movie buff and watch around 100 films per year. I also spend my time hiking, running, reading, and playing trivia.

What do you hope to gain from working at HSL?

I hope to gain confidence in my reference abilities as well as a good understanding of how to share OER with diverse student bodies.
