With one exception all those taking this class were faculty and practicing health professionals.

There are a number who are not in this photo because of their own teaching and health practice schedules.

  Final Intro Class pix01122016B

This was a Great Class!

We covered the need for strong theory and model based communication design and implementation and the need for high production and creative values in public health and science communication.

We introduced a model that provides strong theory and model consistency from initial survey design through media development, media delivery development, project implementation and evaluation.

We identified at least 9 projects that can use this model. All of these projects are good candidates for finding support to implement pilot programs.

The Ger Districts are where most of the heavy pollution from coal burning comes from. I have families to visit there.


Eagle News- Guest Hour Interview

from

Beautiful Downtown Ulaanbaatar Mongolia

Actually, it is a beautiful downtown. Eagle news was intrigued by the our first of its kind, Communication for Public Health and Science class at the National University of Medical Sciences, School of Public Health. Ulaanbaatar is a city of mobile device users who make full use of the Internet and Social Media. I was guest of Host, Tugsjargal, for the half hour show.

Misheel Davaadorj, a medical student at MNUMS interpreted questions as they were asked and answers as they were given. She sat off camera and never hesitated and gave quick succinct translations to keep us moving.  Misheel is going to combine a public health masters with her medical school degree.

Exciting Days teaching

Introduction to Public Health and Science Communication

Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences

School of Public Health

The class is primarily made up of Public Health faculty, including Medical Doctors and Public Health practitioners. We have Medical students and public health graduate students in class also.

We've spent part of two class sessions on persuasion theory and the need to pre-test to find measurable indicators using reasoned action and the Theory of Planned Behavior.

We are establishing that all communication processes be theory based using sound research methodology.

One model that we are exploring looks like this:

Beliefs ->

Attitudes toward a Behavior ->

Subjective Norms  ->

Perception of Behavior Control    ->

(Self-Efficacy)

Behavioral Intention

Clarence Wigfall Interview with Saverio Bellusci, PhD


Gordon Conference - Fibroblast Growth Factors in Development & Disease


March 2-7, 2014  Ventura Beach Marriott  Ventura, CA


The Gordon Research Seminar on Fibroblast Growth Factors in Development & Disease is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is emerging research on molecular mechanisms of FGF signaling and the involvement of these pathways in normal development and pathological conditions as well as in regeneration/repair after injury. The meeting will cover diverse areas of FGF biology including, but not limited to, developmental biology, cell biology, pathology, pharmacology, endocrinology and biochemistry.
