School of Nursing Students, Faculty Teach Life-Saving Skills to NYSP Participants
There are some wet lessons in saving lives. Fourth-year Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing students—Leslie Jones, Cindy Meng and Jacquelyn Smith—are having a splash while teaching 500 campers in the National Youth Sports Program how to swim and tread water and stay healthy.
According to swim teacher Cheryl "Mother" Greenwood, young people need to conquer their fears of the water and know how to be prepared to swim to save their friends in trouble or themselves in a tricky water situation.
Working with FPB faculty member Ebony Hardee, the nursing majors also teach the youth lessons on diabetes, asthma, healthy eating and sexually transmitted diseases for their required senior capstone experience, a semester-long service experience unique among nursing programs.

For Faculty and Staff
James E. Zull, professor of biology and author of The Art of Changing the Brain, continues his series on the human brain on Tuesday, July 7, with "Change Through Learning." The series focuses on the fact that the mind is the creation of the physical brain and hence any changes in our ways of thinking must correspond, in some way, to actual physical changes in the brain. The sessions meet each Tuesday at noon in the Herrick Room, located in the Allen Memorial Library Building, through August 4. The series is sponsored by the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE). Pizza and sodas will be provided. RSVP to UCITE by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
