Fall finals are coming—but so are the Alliance of Therapy Dog teams!
Join us at the Strauss Health Sciences Library on December 4th from 11:30am – 1:30pm in the student lounge to PAWS and relax! This was a very popular activity at the library’s spring DeStress@Strauss event, so we’re bringing it back.
In May, we had 86 visitors, of whom 51% reported “no stress” after visiting with the dog teams. 20 of you requested dogs “All the Time.” Well, we can’t do all the time, but we can do December 4th!
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.

Two events that are part of this year’s Holocaust Genocide and Contemporary Bioethics Program will take place in the Strauss Health Sciences Library. The Program is an annual event that is organized by the Center for Bioethics and Humanities. The Program’s goal is to promote education, scholarship, and community engagement on the lessons of the Holocaust. All Program events are free and open to the public. This year the Program includes events at all four CU campuses and a session at UCHealth.
The events in the Strauss Library will be held on April 30th. There will be a dedication event at Noon on the 3rd floor for the Devorah Sperber sculptures “Witness to the Holocaust”. The dedication will be followed by a panel discussion at 1:00 pm in the Reading Room. The topic for the discussion is “Health Professionals, Patients and the Public Trust”. Reservations are requested, but not required. We hope you can attend one, or more, the events!
On March 1, 2019 the Colorado Open Scholars had a virtual summit. The focus of the submit was “Openness in Tenure and Promotion” and featured two panels centering on issues of open scholarship as related to tenure and promotion as well as shifting ideas around equity and prestige. Below are a couple highlights from the summit.
The first panel, “Research Realities in Tenure and Promotion” (video timestamp: 3:37-57:43), a panelist mentions that quality of research is more important than whether or not the journal is open access. Ideally, authors can find reputable open access journals and that journal’s impact factor. It cannot be denied that an open access journal would have a broader audience than a subscription based journal because it is freely available on the web. Additionally, as it was discussion later in the panel, the reader of the article will probably not care where the article is published. The reader wants the content of the article whether it is published in The American Journal of Nursing (a subscription journal) or Nursing Open (an open access journal).
The second panel, “Open Access and Equity in Tenure and
Promotion” (video timestamp: 58:15-1:47:30), began with a discussion of the
work by tenure and promotion committees. It was urged by a panelist to “stay
ahead of the curve. Don’t fall behind where science is going.” which refers to
the increase and demand for openly scholarly works. A faculty member going
through the tenure and promotion process should not have less value for
publishing in an open access journal vs a subscription journal.
After the panels, participants discussed questions either at
their viewing institution or online. You can view a summary of those
discussions at the end of the video.
The 2019 Summit is a forum for regional and international
discussion on Open Access and Open Educational Resources as related to Tenure
and Promotion. This year features two virtual panel discussions from
scholars across the U.S. and Canada. Following the panels, nine
university campus locations will host local discussion groups, with ideas from
these discussions then shared across campuses. Online discussion will be
available to virtual attendees.
