Health Science – Activities in a Pinch is a full, interactive educational program designed to help health science teachers use more “show” than “tell” in their student instruction of anatomy, medical terminology, and physiology concepts. This training provides specialized teaching techniques that will improve instruction and knowledge retention.
Presenters: Denise Abbott & Robbie Rauzi
Date and Time: Wednesday, April 21, 4:00 PM (ET)
Digital simulations of health science scenarios are more important than ever with continued social distancing and many students still learning from home. Join us to learn how simulations and digital labs can bridge that divide so students stay actively engaged in real-world scenarios, practice critical health science skills, and gain virtual experiences to help them move forward in their career journey. We will highlight how to effectively use simulations and labs with students in any learning scenario (in-class, at home, hybrid). Examples of simulations will be taken from National Geographic Learning/Cengage Health Science programs.
Presenters: Mark Hoffman and Noe Macias

While students may have some idea what an audiologist or speech-language pathologist does, they may not be aware of the exciting opportunities in these professions. Students may think that audiologists only give people hearing tests for hearing aids, but do they know that audiologists also work in military settings to help veterans with hearing loss due to gunfire and explosions? Students may think that speech-language pathologists only help children fix speech errors, but do they know that speech-language pathologists also work in hospitals to help car crash survivors regain language and memory skills? This webinar will explore career options in audiology and speech-language pathology. We’ll provide resources to show your students what we do, where we work, and the educational pathways to get there. We’ll also take a look at how COVID-19 has changed the scene for audiologists and speech-language pathologists.

Description: Helping Make Telehealth Work for You: The National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers!
The National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers is a consortium of 12 regional and 2 national resource centers funded by US Department of Health and Human Services and Health Resources and Services Administration to provide timely and accurate information on telehealth across the nation for implementing telehealth programs for rural and underserved communities. The TRCs responded to the COVID Public Health Emergency’s exponential rise in interest in and use of telemedicine with innovative training programs, educational webinars, resources and toolkits to help guide policies and other ways to limit exposure, and dedicated assistance on how to build and rapidly implement services. This talk will provide an overview of the TRCs, key areas of expertise, how to reach out and request technical assistance, and a summary of our offerings.

Description: Games Are Good!
Why don’t teachers play games in class?
They don’t know why they’re good
They don’t know how
They don’t have time
They don’t have the tools/resources
Games are good, and effective, for a variety of purposes. This workshop will explore the importance of game-type strategies to improve learning, motivation, and employability skills in the health science classroom.

Attorneys and scientists need to collaboratively tackle public health problems while balancing public health and individual rights. This is not a simple task. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many laws were enacted or changed. These laws were designed using science as the foundation and were intended to protect population health, yet there are challenges associated with them, including ethical ones. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss some of the science-based legal changes and their relationship to constitutional rights and professional ethics.
