In this January grand round, faculty from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Nurse Anesthesia program will describe the history of the nurse anesthesia practice. They will recognize the names of various leaders responsible for the evolution of the nurse anesthesia practice, and articulate the history of accreditation in nurse anesthesia education.     Andrew Benson, DNP, CRNA, FAAN is the assistant program director of the DNP Nurse Anesthesia Track at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and the former chief CRNA at Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH). Dr. Benson has immense experience in anesthesiology, clinical practice, and team leadership.

During his tenure at Johns Hopkins, he has assumed a number of leadership positions. He has served as Weinberg Clinical Lead for Colorectal and Plastics, was an integral member in the implementation of the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program, and founded and assumed leadership of the Advanced Practice Advisory Council at JHH. He has completed scholarly work on the topic of ERAS implementation and presented at the Armstrong Institute Patient Safety Summit. He promoted advocacy and advancement of clinical practice of the Maryland CRNAs through policy, education, and awareness during his involvement with the Maryland Association of Nurse Anesthetists, which included serving as its president. Dr. Benson earned a BA in biology at Carroll College, a BSN at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, an MSN at Duke University School of Nursing, and a DNP at Rush University. Catherine Horvath, DNP, MSN, CRNA is an educator and administrator of the newly established DNP Nurse Anesthesia Program at JHSON. A certified nurse anesthetist, she has practiced in a variety of setting with differing surgical specialties and distinct care-delivery models for nearly 30 years.

Dr. Rollison earned her DNP degree from Duke University, where she served as student representative to the Board of the North Carolina Association of Nurse Anesthetists and president of her graduating class and received the Faculty Excellence Award for success in leadership and clinical performance. Dr. Rollison's scholarly work has centered on simulation education for the advanced practice registered nurse, including in situ simulations and interdisciplinary team simulation with a focus on team crisis management.

Virtual January 26, January 26, WednesdaySponsored by Hopkins Alumni  Join fellow alumni and friends for a virtual tour of the Met's special exhibit, In America, A Lexicon of Fashion. Since its founding in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum's galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures. The Costume Institute’s In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, launches a two-part exploration of fashion in the United States in the Anna Wintour Costume Center. It establishes a modern vocabulary of American fashion based on its expressive qualities. This portion of the exhibition uses the organizing principle of a patchwork quilt. A signature quilt begun in 1856 from The Met's American Wing collection opens the show, and serves as a metaphor for the United States and its varied cultural identities. Approximately 100 men’s and women’s ensembles by a diverse range of designers from the 1940s to the present are featured (virtually, we will only be able to explore a few of these ensembles). Enclosed in scrimmed cases that represent three-dimensional “patches” of a quilt, they are organized into 12 sections that explore defining emotional qualities: Nostalgia, Belonging, Delight, Joy, Wonder, Affinity, Confidence, Strength, Desire, Assurance, Comfort, and Consciousness. Part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion—opening in the American Wing period rooms on May 7, 2022—will present sartorial narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of those rooms. This class will have a limited number of spaces available, so please make sure to register early to secure your spot! This event will not be recorded.  The perspectives and opinions expressed by the speaker(s) during this program are those of the speaker(s) and not, necessarily, those of Johns Hopkins University and the scheduling of any speaker at an alumni event or program does not constitute the University’s endorsement of the speaker’s perspectives and opinions.

Performance not included. Figaro, Figaro, Fi-ga-ro! Join Baltimore Concert Opera’s (BCO) Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Aaron Ziegel in a series of lectures designed to prepare and heighten your theatrical experience before attending BCO’s fully staged production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. The lectures will encompass an in-depth examination of the composer’s biography and operatic output in the context of his times and contemporaries. We will explore the history of comic opera and Rossini’s contributions to that legacy. We will uncover analytical insights into the work’s construction, performance practice, and reception history, in addition to hearing from some of the artists involved in BCO’s production. Whether you know Rossini’s music from Bugs Bunny or are new to the opera, you are sure to come away humming Rossini’s classic tunes! Beginning with an overview of Rossini's output during his prolific yet relatively brief career as an opera writer, we will focus especially on the emergence of the precocious composer's personal style in his early works written while he was just a teenager. Another essential aspect of the composer's musical makeup is the legacy of comic opera inherited from earlier composers including Mozart, Cimarosa, and Paisiello. These ingredients together lay the groundwork for The Barber of Seville, premiered a week before Rossini's 24th birthday. Turning to the work itself, the course will examine Rossini's compositional methods, his distinctive musical style idiom as exemplified in Il barbiere di Siviglia, the performance-practice traditions required in singing Rossini's music, the business of opera production in early 19th-century Italy, and the challenges of producing and interpreting this staple of the operatic repertory for today's audiences.barber-of-seville-virtual-lectur

February 2 - March 9, 2022 (6 Session) Wednesdays, 6 PM - 8 PM ET Where did the time go? I still feel young until I look in the mirror!  Who are you calling “old?”  Many people, particularly Americans, have fought against the aging process for decades. But the pandemic has upended how Americans perceive both quality of life and the aging process itself. This core curriculum course examines who is “old” and what that means in the post-Covid-19 world. The instructor, along with select guest speakers, will help students answer these questions and more: Do people still retire completely and if so, what do they do with their time? Where do they live—and how has the pandemic impacted those choices? How have relationships with family and friends changed? What adjustments have family caregivers had to make? What impact will the growing number of older adults have on healthcare and other organizations in this country?  What does the quality of life as we age truly mean?

Odyssey Virtual February 09, February 9, WednesdayBrought to you by Odyssey February 9, 2022 - March 9, 2022 (5 Sessions) Wednesdays, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET What do we actually know about the American Myth? How do we define it, who gets to shape it, and how does it affect the way we live today? Despite dealing with stories from over two hundred years ago, these questions are urgent and important today. Societies select and promote information about their past to help people develop a sense of their history and identity.  Much of this material is often overly simplified, half-true, excessively biased or just false. It’s often difficult to separate legend and popular misconceptions from historically accurate information.  This course will explore why myths arose, the role they play and what historians say really happened. It will attempt to assist students to think critically while challenging widespread misunderstandings. It will examine how popular culture, politics and education influence our knowledge of the past. Historical topics will include myths of the county’s founders; the old west; slavery, Civil War and Reconstruction; American wars; and the presidents.

Odyssey February 10, February 10, ThursdayBrought to you by Odyssey February 10, 2022 - March 17, 2022 Thursdays, 6:30 - 8:30 PM ET Part II of this course will be offered in the Fall 2022 semester. This course will focus on select film projects which provide a unique lens through which we may analyze both the oppressive nature of Black life in America and the resounding spirit that fashions  the improvisation and accompaniment, representation, participation, and creative agency necessary for survival in this ever-changing disunited America  This course will feature the following films and documentaries: Simple yet riveting, The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till articulates the madness of racism in the South of the 1950s. Combining archival photos and footage with deeply felt interviews, this documentary tells the harrowing story of what happened when a 14-year-old black boy from Chicago, visited his relatives in Mississippi.  The reaction of his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, to his violent murder galvanized the nation and forever changed the course of the civil rights movement in the United States. I Am Not Your Negro is a 2016 documentary film and social critique directed by Raoul Peck, based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript Remember This House. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin's recollections of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as his personal observations of American history.[3] It was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards and won the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary. Jump at the Sun intersperses insights from leading scholars and rare footage of the rural South (some of it shot by Zora herself) with re-enactments of a revealing 1943 radio interview. Hurston biographer, Cheryl Wall, traces Zora's unique artistic vision back to her childhood in Eatonville, Florida, the first all-black incorporated town in the U.S. In Culture Criticism and Transformation, Bell Hooks displays the factors behind and beyond media scenes and scenarios on the presentation of the American Social and Cultural life, mainly the attribution is given to one group over another whether it is a sexist one or a race gendered more precisely the “White Supremacist Capitalist Patriarchy” which relate directly to the domination system we are living in our society. This documentary should be a wake-up call to all of us, we should be more careful about how media intends to dominate and influence our thoughts and ideas.  Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools is a feature-length documentary that takes a close look at the educational, judicial, and societal disparities facing Black Girls. Inspired by the groundbreaking book of the same name by renowned scholar, Monique W. Morris, Ed.D. The documentary confronts the ways in which the misunderstanding of Black girlhood has led to excessive punitive discipline which in turn disrupts one of the most important factors in their lives, their education.  Sixty years after the Little Rock Nine faced mobs of racially charged hatred and became cornerstones of the Civil Rights movement, Teach Us All:  Segregation & Education in the U.S., examines how the present-day United States education system fails to live up to that promise of desegregation as it slides back into a re-segregation of its modern school.

Odyssey Virtual February 14, February 14, MondayBrought to you by Odyssey February 14 - March 14, 2022 (5 sessions) Monday, 6:30 - 8:30 PM ET During this course, we explore the art, history, and cultures of the American Southwest, from ancient Native American homeland to contemporary cultural mosaic. We begin our exploration some 2,000 years ago, when the Southwest was the homeland of the Ancestral Pueblo people (the “Anasazi”), visiting such major archaeological sites as Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde, and Canyon de Chelly, with their spectacular residential compounds, cliff dwellings, and intriguing petroglyphs. We then turn our attention to the historical communities of the Hopi, Zuni, and other Pueblo peoples of New Mexico and Arizona, along with their Navajo and Apache neighbors. We then consider the impact of the coming of the Spanish in the 16th and 17th centuries, and then the arrival of Anglo traders and settlers, the coming of the railroads and the influx of Easterners, and the genesis of the Southwest as a multicultural mecca, with a vibrant avant-garde arts scene extending from the 1920’s to the present day.

With lyrical voices, these two respected writers ferret out major issues which deserve, merit, a very considered attention. Classes One and Two:  The Practice of the Wild by Gary Snyder. Nine of Snyder’s evocative essays, collected from different parts of his life, form his work The Practice of the Wild. Classes Three and Four:  Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. Many critics, if not the majority, portray Leslie Mormon’s Silko’s Ceremony as the greatest novel of Native American Literature.

Uno 2nd Ed. will provide us with a solid basis of vocabulary, conversational and structural exercises, and informative grammar explanations. However, our classes will not be based solely on the textbook. We will incorporate music, readings, films/videos, skits, and other activities to make the classroom environment and material more interesting, applicable, and relevant. By the end of this course, our goal is to be able to confidently express ourselves in Spanish and be able to apply what we have learned into our daily lives. Total immersion in language and culture: Your instructor and course materials will provide you with numerous opportunities to develop language skills and cultural competence through the use of the target language to hear, read, write, and talk about things that are relevant to your life. During every class session you will find yourself immersed in a rich Spanish language environment that will help you learn how to communicate meaningfully in Spanish and collectively explore the language and the cultures.

Odyssey March 16, March 16, WednesdayBrought to you by Odyssey March 16, 2022 - April 13, 2022 Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8:15 PM ET Terms like climate crises, population decline, and global warming fill the news on any given day, but what do they mean to us? Humans have been a part of the Earth’s ecosystem for approximately 300,000 years but the most dramatic impacts of people on this system have occurred in the last 300 years.  How did we get where we are today? The major impacts of humans on planetary ecosystems include global warming, overuse of water from aquifers and rivers, and massive deforestation which leads to steep declines in biodiversity including species losses. The last 200 years have seen rapid population growth - from one billion in about 1830 to approximately 8 billion today with an increase of over 200,000 persons every day. This course will introduce you to the history of the population including which national populations are currently growing or shrinking, the roles of agricultural and economic growth on population growth, globalization and what it means to communities across the globe, and the ways that population size are estimated – today and for the future. What will this planet look like in 2050? What role does the climate crisis play?  What about non-renewable resources?  We will explore potential impacts including migration, mortality risks, and rates, and how levels of fertility and contraception are changing around the world as well as incentives and disincentives for childbearing and the small family norm. Finally, we will explore some of the innovative ways that science and technology could mitigate the impacts of global warming, including negative emissions technologies, desalinization to provide access to potable water, and alternative energy sources.

Odyssey May 17, May 17, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey May 17, 2022 Thursday, 6:30 - 8:30 PM ET Some 500 years ago occurred the remarkable culture clash between the Aztecs under their Emperor Montezuma and Spanish Conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés, along with vast numbers of Indigenous allies. New scholarship has given us a very different picture of these events and of the main actors than was common until very recently. Part I - The Aztec Empire The session begins with an overview of Aztec history and culture in the centuries immediately preceding the arrival of the Spanish, with a focus on the indigenous capital of Tenochtitlan. We will explore the origins and development of Aztec culture, focusing on the monuments and artifacts of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan and its central Templo Mayor. We will look through the lenses of archaeology, history, art, literature and comparative religion to arrive at an understanding of the dynamics of Aztec culture in the past, and its reverberations in the present day. Part II - The Spanish Entrada We then move on to consider the dynamics of what has traditionally been called the "Spanish Conquest," but which we now know involved a great deal of indigenous agency, and the emergence of colonial Mexico City on the ruins of the Aztec capital. We consider the existing Spanish presence in the Caribbean, the mission of Cortes, his progress across central Mexico, and the fateful meeting with the Aztec Emperor Montezuma. We trace the story of the Spanish entrance into Tenochtitlan, the house-arrest of Montezuma, and the Aztec/Mexica resistance that drove the Spanish out of the city, the famous Noche triste, followed by the subsequent victorious return of the Spanish a year later, and the overthrow of the Aztec Empire and the establishment of colonial Mexico City on the ruins of Tenochtitlan.
