UC Libraries Invites You to Participate in the All of Us Journey to Help Create a Healthier Future

all of us mobile unitThe Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library will host the All of Us awareness and education mobile unit on Friday, June 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., 231 Albert Sabin Way, Kresge Circle.

Sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, the All of Us research program is building one of the largest biomedical resources of its kind to explore how lifestyle, environment and biological makeup affect health and disease. The program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and medical breakthroughs and to improve health by enabling individualized prevention, treatment and care for all of us. It is committed to engaging multiple sectors and forging strong partnerships with academic and other non-profit researchers, patient groups and the private sector.

The All of Us mobile unit is a hands-on experience to build awareness and excitement about the All of Us research program. Through this national tour, the traveling exhibit actively engages community members to join this landmark research project. Visitors to the All of Us mobile unit have the opportunity to engage with interactive video kiosks to learn about lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that make each person unique, as well as receive information about precision medicine and the goals of the All of Us project.

Attending Wednesday’s Cecil Striker Lecture? Stay for a Book Signing of “Leaving a Legacy: Lessons from the Writings of Daniel Drake.”

leaving a legacy book coverThe Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions and the Cecil Striker Society for the History of Medicine will host the 10th Cecil Striker Society Annual Lecture from 5:00-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, in the Kresge Auditorium, Medical Sciences Building, 231 Albert Sabin Way.

This year’s lecture, titled Daniel Drake’s Connection to Sir William Osler: Celebrating Two Medical Education Reformers, will focus on the immense impact both physicians had on medical education. Philip M. Diller, M.D., Ph.D., and Robert E. Rakel, M.D., will serve as co-lecturers for the event.

Following the lecture, author Philip M. Diller will be on hand outside the Winkler Center to sign copies of his recently published book, Leaving a Legacy: Lessons from the Writings of Daniel Drake.

As documented here in his own words from excerpts of lectures, personal journal entries, presentations, speeches, books and letters to his children, readers learn about the scope of Daniel Drake’s accomplishments in medicine, contributions to his community, and dedication to his family. Diller goes beyond biography to contextualize Drake’s life choices and what makes him a role model for today’s physicians. Diller selected 180 thematically arranged excerpts, which he paired with original reflection questions to guide the reader through thought-provoking prompts.

Leaving a Legacy was published by the University of Cincinnati Press.

News from the RDS Research Labs @ GMP

As we begin the UC Maymester session, we are excited to share news about our students working in the Research and Data Services Research Labs @ the Geology Math and Physics Library.

We say farewell to one of our students working in the labs.  Sobiya George will return to the Chemistry Department for the summer and continue her research projects in Dr. Anna Gudmundsdottir’s lab.  We appreciate Sobiya’s hard work on the ImageJ and Zotero workshops, and wish her luck on her research.

Zhiyuan Yao, Sobiya George, and Jenny Latessa

And we offer many congratulations to Zhiyuan Yao on her acceptance to the AAG-UCGIS Summer School 2019.   Through this NSF supported program, Zhiyuan will be working with “30 graduate students and early career scholars to learn and collaborate in developing novel solutions to complex problems and to take advantage of geospatial data science and cutting-edge scientific advances and technical capabilities of cyberGIS (e.g., CyberGIS-Jupyter and Virtual ROGER: cybergis.illinois.edu/infrastructures). Participants will experience the types of collaborative and professional interactions that are key to addressing reproducible geospatial problem solving in the context of computation- and/or data-intensive research involving confidential geospatial data.”  This is an amazing opportunity for Zhiyuan to grow her skills and meet other researchers in the GIS field.  To learn more about this program, visit their website.  Good luck and enjoy the program.

Zhiyuan Yao in the Data & GIS Collab

The lab will be open for consultations and workshops over the summer.  Check the Research Labs website  for the latest information on hours and any closures due to vacations.  Please note that many changes are coming to the libraries website as part of the greater UC website refresh.  For now, one easy way to find the Research Labs website is to visit the library libguide page and type in GIS.  The parent RDS website can now be found under the Research tab on the main Libraries.uc.edu website.  Email AskData@UC.edu if you have any questions.

Reflections of UC Data Day 2019 –

Article Written by Rebecca Olson – Social Science and Business Informationist.

On April 1, 2019, UC Libraries hosted the 4th annual Data Day Conference. A celebration of research being held on campus, in the local area, and on the national and international level, this year’s focus was on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in data.

The first keynote speaker, Amanda J. Wilson, detailed the All of Us program the National Library of Medicine and National institute of Health have funded and promoted. Individuals are allowed to take charge of their health by participating in and directing research. Parts of the program include providing access to resources at libraries, community centers, and laundromats to reach the broadest population.
