Hopkins at Home: Using Biomarkers to Shape Clinical Care for Brain Injuries Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm Locations: Online Details:
Biomarkers are changing the way we approach and deliver care for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Biological molecules indicating a specific process, biomarkers can help scientists study the mechanisms behind TBI, learn more about divergent responses to TBIs in different populations, and better predict patient reactions.
In this presentation, Jessica Gill, Ph.D., will discuss recent findings about the diagnosis of brain injuries, the identification of biomarkers that shape recovery in acute patients and athletes, and more. We'll learn about chronic symptoms in Veterans and civilians, and how biomarkers may relate to neuronal vulnerability that contributes to onset and maintenance of symptoms. We'll even learn about recent studies showing how sweat can be used as a biomarker in a community setting.
Diversity Dimensions: The Non-Traditional Student Experience Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm Locations: Online Details: Join us for a Diversity Dimensions Experience focused on JHSON's commitment to diversity and inclusion in our admissions process. Each month will highlight a different focus on the diverse and unique population of our students and applicants and the potential impact on the profession of nursing. This month, we will focus on students and nurses who may categorize themselves as non-traditional students. This may include students with families, those serving our nation, or those shifting from their current non-medical career to nursing. We will highlight how our students' unique backgrounds can be an asset to our student body and be successful within the School of Nursing.
Registration is required.
