Social Determinants: The Key To Repairing Health Disparities

Research shows that only 10% of our health outcomes are determined by the health care we receive. Another 10% of how healthy we are is determined by our genetic make-up. What accounts for the rest? This presentation will ask and answer this important question which is key to understanding how to live our longest, healthiest lives possible. We will explore the data that demonstrates that social determinants – the environments in which we live, work, and play – determine our health and health behaviors more than all other influences combined. This discussion will examine these “social determinants of health” from an empirical, medical, and practical perspective. We will focus our attention on the data that describe the health of populations in Virginia, but rely also on national studies that powerfully link social and economic inequity with health disparities. We will end our discussion with a survey of what can be done by citizens, health providers, and policy-makers in light of the evidence.

Research At UVA : Quest To Conquer Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s disease has been the most expensive disease in the U.S. since 2013. It cost American society approximately $260 billion in 2017, a sum that will rise to more than $1 trillion by 2050 unless methods to prevent Alzheimer’s disease or significantly slow its progression can be developed soon. To that end, the Bloom lab recently obtained evidence that memantine (Namenda®), an FDA-approved drug for modest and temporary symptom relief in advanced AD patients, may also be able to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Bloom will discuss how that discovery might lead to a clinical trial to test if daily memantine treatment beginning years before Alzheimer’s disease symptoms develop can prevent or delay symptom onset.

Meanwhile, wealthy donors and outside groups are pouring more money into politics than ever. Proponents argue that the First Amendment protects their spending, which is a form of political speech, and that the money buys ads that inform voters.

King’s Vibrato: Speech, Power and the Sounds of Blackness

The Community MLK Celebration presents Maurice Wallace, Associate Professor, English Department and Associate Director, African-American & African Studies, Carter G. Woodson Institute, University of Virginia will explore the sonic force and densities of Martin Luther King, Jr’s speech-making. He will discuss the power of amplified speech and ambient sound in the making of King’s memory. In a sense, this talk is part of a historical recovery project aimed at resituating King’s voice (as distinct from his words) in time and space. Knowing the rhetorical content of King’s speeches is not at all the same as knowing a great deal about King’s unique sound or the dynamics of technology and state terror inspiring it. For while sound amplification technology may have augmented the tonality in King’s voice as he spoke in Washington and preached in Memphis, for example, it is also certain that this same technology helped mute the state threat to King and his auditors, fearfully heard in the constant clicking of cameras, recorders, timers, and triggers. http://alumni.virginia.edu/learn/program/kings-vibrato/

The University of Virginia and Thomas Jefferson’s Battle for Religious Freedom

Thomas Jefferson is well-known as one of the founders of American religious freedom and the separation of church and state; yet, while he strongly opposed government involvement in religion, he always expected Americans to be privately religious. In designing the University of Virginia, he worked diligently, against considerable political opposition, to ensure that the University did not actively promote religion but left religious matters to the students. Almost two hundred years later, in Rosenberger v. UVA (1995), the Supreme Court adopted a “neutrality principle” — government must neither promote nor discriminate against religion – a decision with which Jefferson would undoubtedly have been pleased. John Ragosta, Fellow, Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, History Faculty, Randolph College, and UVA’s Summer Jefferson Symposium Faculty Leader, will address Jefferson’s role in defining American religious freedom, his plans for UVA, and the modern religious freedom issues with which we continue to grapple. http://alumni.virginia.edu/learn/program/religious-freedom/

Cuba - Past, Present, And Future

June 10, 2016 - Reunions Seminar Greg Fairchild, E. Thayer Bigelow Research Associate Professor, Darden Graduate School of Business Louis Nelson, Associate Dean for Research and International Programs; Director of Program in Historic Preservation; Professor, Department of Architectural History Charlotte Rogers, Assistant Professor of Spanish, Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese Over a half a century ago, the United States imposed an embargo on Cuba and broke diplomatic relations. On December 17, 2014, President Obama announced a new chapter in U.S. and Cuba relations - the beginning of a normalization process between the United States and Cuba. A major step in this process was reached on July 20, 2015 with the re-opening of embassies in both countries. The U.S. government is attempting to foster increased travel access and people-to-people exchanges, encourage the development of telecommunications and the internet, and create opportunities for U.S. businesses to support the growth of Cuba’s nascent private sector. The University of Virginia’s knowledgeable experts will assemble to discuss Cuba’s past and present and share insights into its future.

How Jefferson’s Misinterpretations Led to His Masterpiece – The Lawn

Bruce Boucher, Director, UVA Art Museum Thomas Jefferson called the architectural treatise by Andrea Palladio his “Bible” and encouraged others to use it as he did. However, Jefferson’s knowledge of Palladio and of classical architecture was largely at second hand and through printed sources, which were in turn interpretations of Palladio’s work. This led to creative misinterpretations that had an impact on Jefferson’s masterpiece, the Lawn of the University of Virginia.

Thomas Jefferson’s Plan for Mount Jefferson to Sustain his Academical Village

November 22, 2014 The site of UVa’s Academical Village is well acknowledged, but virtually unrecognized is a second and separate land parcel to the west that Jefferson also acquired in creating his ‘Central College’. Simply labeled as ‘Mountains’ by Jefferson on his survey, this 153-acre parcel held the key to creating the Academical Village and sustaining it over time. U.Va.’s Landscape Architecture Professor Nancy Takahashi will share the history of the hill later to be known as Mount Jefferson or Observatory Hill, and the sometimes contested utilization of its resources in fulfilling the teaching, research, and student life mission of the institution.

Hughes, Mary Lahendro, Jody September 12, 2015 At just over the halfway point of a two year construction project, Jody Lahendro, Historic Preservation Architect, U.Va.’s Facilities Planning & Construction, will share highlights of the first fifteen months of renovation work.

Thinking Without Fear: The Science Behind Anxiety Reduction

Teachman, Bethany, Professor, College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences September 19, 2015 It’s not a heart attack; you’re just out of breath! How can we understand why an intelligent, normally rational person with a spider phobia has refused to go down to her basement for ten years, why a person with social phobia sees only the one scowling face in a room full of smiles, or why a person with panic disorder is convinced that the 200th panic attack is the one that will bring on a heart attack? Each of these seemingly irrational beliefs and behaviors is likely fueled by some aspect of biased thinking, whereby anxious individuals interpret cues in a threatening way. Bethany Teachman, Professor and Director, Clinical Training, Psychology, School of Arts and Sciences will discuss how this biased thinking contributes to the onset and persistence of anxiety problems, and how you can change this thinking to relieve anxiety.
