Care Team

 

The HSC cares about our students’ success, not only academically, but emotionally and physically as well. Because of our commitment, we provide services across campus that respond to our students’ unique needs. The HSC Care Team receives referrals and supports students experiencing personal, emotional, and/or medical concerns and is made up of representatives from various departments on campus so that a well-rounded, holistic support system is in place for the HSC community. The Care Team is designed to support students through non-clinical case management by connecting them with resources and serving as an on-campus source of support.

Mission
• Create solutions for healthier communities by assisting in promoting the health, safety, and well-being of the HSC community.

How to Refer a Student to the Care Team
The Care Team serves a centralized reporting source for any individual (students, faculty, staff, parents, etc.) who is concerned about a student and would like assistance. Referrals can be made through the Person of Concern Reporting Form found at http://unthsc.edu/personofconcern. You can select the nature of the report and identify and provide context for the concern being reported.

Connecting Climate Change, Mosquitoes and Community Health – FREE Webinar Wed, Dec 8, at 10am (sponsored by NNLM Region 3)

 

The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 3, housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library, would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series, Health Bytes with Region 3.

This monthly 1 hour series focuses on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

Scientists use environmental data obtained from NASA satellites to create regional predictive risk models of mosquito-borne disease outbreaks. The spatial patterns of precipitation, humidity, temperature, and land cover identify the locations where disease carrying mosquitoes can thrive and transmit pathogens that cause disease. The data obtained from satellites can be enhanced with high resolution, ground-based observations made by citizen scientists participating in GLOBE Mission Mosquito (GMM). GMM is an international field campaign supporting citizen scientists of all ages to monitor changes in the frequency, range, and distribution of potential disease vector mosquitoes by reporting observations of potential mosquito habitats and land cover using a free mobile app. These data can be downloaded from The GLOBE Program database and analyzed to explore a variety of research questions. Join this fast-paced webinar to learn about the connection between NASA climate change science, citizen science observations, and mosquito-borne disease, including cutting edge research related to machine learning and artificial intelligence. We’ll also present several resources and opportunities relevant to library and health professionals and researchers (scientific data, databases, and scientific publications) and outreach (webinars, reference materials, multimedia, hands-on activities, and more).

Reporting Options and Student Commendations

 

The HSC cares about our students’ success, not only academically, but emotionally and physically as well. The HSC also strives to provide all students with a campus environment that is conducive to academic endeavors and social and individual growth. Because of our commitment, we strive to provide services across campus that respond to our students’ unique needs. In an effort to increase opportunities to identify students of concern, a centralized reporting tool was created to capture Care Team referrals and violations of the Student Code of Conduct & Discipline reports within one online form. The Person of Concern Reporting Form can be found at: http://unthsc.edu/personofconcern. Individuals making a referral can select the nature of their report and identify and provide context for the nature of their concern. By utilizing one central referral method, opportunities are created to gather complete and thorough information in an effort to support our campus in a holistic manner. Reports of alleged Title IX/Sexual Misconduct violations can be made by filing a report at https://unthsc.edu/titleixreportingform.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Emily Mire (Emily.Mire@unthsc.edu).

Additionally, the Division of Student Affairs wants to recognize and celebrate our student’s achievements. If there is a student you would like to recognize, the Student Commendation Form can be found at: https://unthsc.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0vwE9QNo6TLRBU9.

If you have any questions about reporting options or submitting a Commendation Form, please don’t hesitate to contact the Division of Student and Academic Affairs at 817-735-2505.

Brought to you by the North Texas Eye Research Institute.

It’s easy to take your eyesight for granted.

Diabetes is the leading cause of vision loss in people 18–64 years old. And there are no obvious signs or symptoms. But the great news is an annual routine eye exam could prevent 95% of vision loss caused by diabetes.

Get Smart About Eye Health.
Vision loss is preventable with early detection, timely treatment and appropriate follow-up care.
