Hello Friends of the Carver College of Medicine,

As interim director of Global Health Studies, I wanted to tell you about a project I’m working on to help Global Health Studies students at the University of Iowa complete internships that address the complex factors influencing health and disease locally and around the world.

My team in the Global Health Studies Program and I are fundraising through the university’s crowdfunding site, GOLDrush. We are trying to raise $10,000 in just 30 days, which will help cover the cost for two students to complete an 8-week summer 2019 internship in Mysuru, India.

You can learn more by visiting our site and watching our short video:https://goldrush.uiowa.edu/ghs

Please consider supporting this project by 1) making a donation, and/or 2) sharing this campaign on social media. A donation at any level is greatly appreciated. And, by sharing our campaign link, you might help us reach additional friends and family who might be interested in supporting this worthy project.

Thanks so much for your consideration. Please let me know if I can answer any questions.
A wonderful accolade for UI CCOM alumnus, Dr. Azeemuddin Ahmed (10MD 10MBA)!
Hello,
I am trying to contact the dean, or the director of academic programs or marketing department of this medical school. If you can have them email me ([email protected]) at their earliest convenience I would greatly appreciate it.
Cheers!
Chris

Gift for scholarships arises from trusting doctor-patient relationship

Just one month after he donated $10,000 in support of the Densen-Burton Scholarship Fund for medical students, James Tyler, former chair and CEO of Atlantic Bottling Company, returned with even bigger news: he would donate shares of Coca-Cola stock—valued at approximately $540,000—to the scholarship fund.

Learn how his genuine friendship and lively doctor-patient relationship with Peter Densen, MD, led to this generous gift: https://medicineiowa.org/fall-2021/gift-scholarships-arises-trusting-doctor-patient-relationship

Gift for scholarships arises from trusting doctor-patient relationship A doctor-patient relationship built on wry humor and tough love is the driving force behind a major donation to a Carver College of Medicine student scholarship fund.

Linking stress, alcohol, and brain disorders 12/27/2021

Linking stress, alcohol, and brain disorders

Catherine Marcinkiewcz, PhD, is driven to understand the effects of stress, alcohol, and antidepressants on the brain. Through her work, Marcinkiewcz sees a future where patients with brain disorders could receive personalized treatment plans.

“For instance, the way we treat depression may change if the patient struggles with alcohol dependence or has a history of post-traumatic stress disorder,” she says.

Marcinkiewcz’s team also is exploring possible links between alcohol consumption and Alzheimer’s disease.

Linking stress, alcohol, and brain disorders Catherine Marcinkiewcz hopes her research will lead to more personalized treatment plans for depression and other brain disorders.

Inspired to improve rural health care

First-year medical student Joseph McDonell grew up in a small Iowa town without convenient access to health care. Now, he hopes to expand medical services to all Iowans through the development of a remote health monitor and increased telehealth programs.

“Coming from those roots and understanding those major health care issues was enough for me to try to elicit some change,” McDonell says.

Meet physical therapy student Jack Moss! 👋 Jack will graduate tomorrow with his degree in physical therapy, and in honor of this, he did a Q&A with us:

What drew you to the field of physical therapy?
“It’s a little cliché if you talk to a lot of physical therapy students, but when I was in high school, I injured myself and had to go through physical therapy myself. My physical therapist was my assistant cross-country coach, and while I was going through the process of being a patient, I was asking him all these questions and he became my mentor and gave me guidance.”

With University of Iowa being the No. 4-ranked doctoral PT program in the country, what are some of the program’s biggest strengths?
“We have a lot of leaders on our staff and a lot of students that are driven to become leaders. A lot of our staff does research that is nationally recognized in a multitude of areas, which is a huge strength—not only from a research standpoint but driving the profession forward from a student perspective of graduating great clinicians and great leaders.”

Do you have any advice for aspiring PT students?
“Make sure to get as much experience with clinical rotations [as you can] and see a wide variety of physical therapy settings. When I first started, I never knew that physical therapists worked in the emergency department or the ICU. I thought it was just what my rotation looks like right now, working in a stand-alone clinic. Also, enjoy the process. Looking back, I will remember all the memories and all the fun experiences I had. The degree will come—don’t forget to be present in the moment.”

Congratulations to Jack and all our physical therapy graduates! 🎉

Steven M. Weinberg, MD, had just about done it all before he passed away this past August: Chief of Surgical Services at a U.S. Air Force base, a successful surgery practice, a stint in real estate, a law degree, and the list goes on.

But what stood out most to Weinberg (67MD) was his time as the Peace Corps medical director. Weinberg traveled to 34 countries and oversaw the work of more than 140 doctors and 8,000 volunteers. His experience at the Peace Corps during the SARS and Ebola outbreaks, and his work in Africa on the agency’s response to HIV, helped prepare him for COVID-19, which he calls his “fourth pandemic.”

Questions and Answers with Madeline Shea 11/09/2021

Questions and Answers with Madeline Shea

Professor Madeline Shea, PhD, is committed to engaging and guiding students of all backgrounds in the classroom and in her lab. Her innovations in teaching are supported by a lengthy list of accolades, including the 2020 President and Provost Awards for Teaching Excellence—the top University of Iowa teaching award.

“One reason I joined a university rather than a research institute is because I wanted to share the joy of science broadly, not just with specialists,” she says. “A democracy depends on people being aware of the grueling process and the joy of discovering new knowledge, testing it, realizing that sometimes it's hard to get to the answers, and sometimes the answers change in ways that we didn't anticipate.”
