Health Care - Three New Areas of Interest
We have all heard, ad nauseum, about the controversy at the federal level on financing health care, the role insurance companies should play, maternity cost coverage, existing condition coverage, and other financial problems in operating the U.S. health care system.  However, many health care providers and educators are working to come to grips with recent social and scientific developments that impact the people they serve.   This Wednesday, Claire Gilliland, of Loveland, Colorado, will give us her perspective on three of these new factors in diagnosing and treating medical conditions, and avoiding some consequences of ageing.
Claire Gilliland received her BSN from the University of Florida, and her master’s degree in nursing from the University of Northern Colorado.  For 30 years, she practiced in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and burn care.  She has taught nursing at Front Range Community College for 11 years before her recent retirement, and in 2014 was named the Larimer Campus Master Teacher, and cited for her engaging style, knowledge, and compassion for her students.  She will explain the concerns of health care providers and educators about issues related to stem cells, and the early attempts to use stem cell treatment for certain conditions.  She will address newly identified carcinogenic risks arising from consumption of sugars; and discuss the potential benefits to the public from available software applications for their cell phones.

Last Week's Program - Ryun Williams, CSU Women's Basketball

Last week Rotarians enjoyed a high-energy, highly entertaining program when CSU Women’s Basketball head coach Ryun Williams discussed his players, his approach and the upcoming season.  Last season, CSU’s Women Basketball Team became the first team in Mountain West history - men’s or women’s - to win the conference championship 4 straight years. 

Williams started out discussing the character and scholarship of his team, saying two things he never worries about are whether the players are going to class, and whether they will get into trouble.  Last year the team average GPA was 3.4, in majors such as engineering, chemical engineering, pre-med, biomedical engineering, business, communications and exercise science. 

He noted that this year’s schedule would be the toughest ever, with away games against Gonzaga, Oklahoma, CU and BYU, and that the team would be young and inexperienced.  But he also said they are very talented, very tall, and would be fun to watch.  He offers players opportunity and growth, and they respond.  He challenges them to ‘win’ the classroom, ‘win’ the weight room, and this year, to ‘empty the tank’, giving their all in every situation.  He considers his most important coaching task to install confidence in players and their teammates, noting the women’s game is much more team oriented than men’s.

William’s overall record at CSU is 115-46 (.714) and 70-18 (.795) in conference play, just slightly behind someone named “Geno”… (Auriemma).
