BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual August 13, August 13, ThursdaySuicide:  A Major Public Health Problem that Needs Attention Now Of the top 10 leading causes of death, only two have increased: suicide and influenza/pneumonia. More than 48 000 people died by suicide in the United States in 2018. The majority of violent deaths in this country are suicides, and our prevention efforts have failed. Suicide is a complex public health problem that is multi-determined and will not be solved with incremental change.  Whereas some other countries have been able to reduce their national rate, there has not been the same level of attention to the emerging evidence, data informed resource allocation, and level of national investment in suicide prevention in the United States. Join Dr. Wilcox as she shares highlights on the scope and burden of suicide as well as key policies and practices that have the strongest evidence to make sustained national impact on suicide prevention.   Holly C. Wilcox, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with joint appointments in the Department of Health Policy and Management as well as the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine and Education. Much of her work involves population-based research on suicidal behaviors, the evaluation of impact of community-based universal prevention programs targeting suicidal behaviors, and data linkage strategies to inform suicide prevention. Dr. Wilcox received her PhD from The Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2003.  Registration for this event will close one hour before the start of the event.suicide-a-major-public-health-pr

HopkinsatHome August 25, August 25, TuesdaySponsored by the Hopkins in Law Affinity Tune in on Tuesday, August 25 at Noon EDT. As the United States examines the ways in which existing criminal justice and policing policies at the local, state, and federal levels affect Black Americans and communities of color, many of us are left wondering about the role of our legislators. Following nearly a week of civil unrest following the death of George Floyd, Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Chairman William C. Smith, Jr. initiated legislation to address officer training, use of force, militarization, prosecutorial intervention, liability caps, the disclosure of personnel records, and The Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights. During this hour, engage with our panelists as they discuss Sen. Smith’s proposed legislation and the impact of George Floyd’s death as it relates to police, policy, and politics in Maryland and beyond. MEET OUR PANELISTS The Honorable Senator William C. Smith, Jr. (A&S '06), Chair, Judicial Proceedings Committee William C. Smith Jr. was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. His parents were young adults during the height of the civil rights movement. It was their struggle and sacrifice that opened doors of opportunity for Will. His parents taught him the importance of a good education and showed him the benefit of living in a caring, engaged community. With the support of his family, Will became a first-generation college student when he attended and graduated from the College of William and Mary. He would go on to earn a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University and a law degree from William and Mary. After college, Will enrolled in AmeriCorps where he worked as a community engagement leader for IMPACT Silver Spring and worked at the ACLU as a Legislative Assistant. During law school Will worked at a law firm handling employment discrimination cases and sought a commission as an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve, a position in which Will continues to serve in today. (Read Will’s full military biography here.) In 2010, Will received a White House appointment to serve as a Director at the Department of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama. In 2014, Will was elected to represent District 20 in the Maryland House of Delegates. As a member of the Judiciary Committee, Will served on the criminal justice and family law subcommittee. Along with these roles, Will was a member of several key workgroups including Justice Reinvestment, Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights and Death with Dignity. In 2016, Will was appointed to represent District 20 in the Maryland State Senate, making him the first African-American Senator from Montgomery County. In the Senate, Will has worked to forge relationships with his colleagues from across the state and political spectrum which has allowed him to become an effective legislator in Annapolis. In 2019, Will became the 50th Chairman of the Judicial Proceedings Committee. He is the first African American to hold that post. As Chairman, Will has championed robust criminal justice reform measures and has led efforts to provide economic and educational opportunities for all Marylanders. Today, Will continues to practice law, his practice focuses on national security and employment discrimination. Will lives in Silver Spring with his wife, Camille, daughter, Jacqueline, and dog, Monty. The Honorable Senator Charles E.

Ganesha Martin, Esq., President, G.M.M. Consulting, LLC Ganesha Martin, Esq. is a change agent working at the intersection of diversity, law, and police reform. Passionate about creating safe spaces for suppressed voices, she works to improve the culture of policing in our country’s most divided cities. Martin began her legal career as a litigator but her work with Baltimore police would be where her legal acumen, strategic and diplomatic communication, and advocacy sensibilities would converge. While there, Freddie Gray’s death thrust the city and its police department into the national spotlight. After the death of Freddie Gray, Martin shifted her focus to improving the culture of policing in Baltimore, making community and police reconciliation her priority. She led the effort to adopt a court-ordered federal Consent Decree and set the Baltimore Police Department up to successfully come into compliance. She was part of the Baltimore Police Department’s negotiations and implementation teams for structural reforms focusing on how police interact with youth, use of force, stop and frisk, de-escalation, body-worn cameras, and interacting with the those suffering from mental and behavioral health crises. Martin’s current work focuses squarely on uniting communities of color and the police who swear to serve and protect them. In addition to Baltimore, she has consulted on Consent Decree, compliance, and police reform matters for the Cleveland and Milwaukee Police Departments. Never one to be intimidated by what others see as impossible, Martin is using her talent to move the needle on some of society’s most challenging social problems. Her ability to translate both sides of an issue, quickly overcome distrust, and move things forward help her get things done. Her commitment to using communication as a bridge to unite opposing groups, diffuse conflict and foster real human connection make her an invaluable asset to anyone seeking to bridge an insurmountable divide. But her fundamental belief in the universal human potential for rehabilitation and understanding pushes her towards her biggest goal to create practical pathways to progress. Martin received her BA in Journalism and Asian Studies from Baylor University and her J.D. from Texas Tech University School of Law.  MEET OUR MODERATOR Dr. Keshia Pollack Porter (Bloomberg '06), Associate Dean for Faculty, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Keshia M.

HealthCare Affinity August 25, August 25, TuesdaySponsored by the Healthcare & Hopkins Alumni in Law Affinity Groups  How much is a human life worth? The question’s complexity resides in the fact that how we arrive at a price tag on human life says a great deal about our priorities. The price tags, and the methods used to develop them, are a reflection of our values as a society. They are infused with influences from economics, ethics, religion, human rights, and law.

But China's foreign policy initiatives, even the vaunted "Belt and Road," will be shaped and redefined as they confront the ground realities of local and regional politics outside China.  In China's Western Horizon, Daniel S. Markey, a scholar of international relations and former member of the U.S. State Department's policy planning staff, previews how China's efforts are likely to play out across the swath of Eurasia that includes South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Over the next 4 months, Professor Markey will engage you in a deep discussion related to these issues. His recent book will be used as a framework, but you will connect topics from the book with articles, videos, online resources, and discussion with other Hopkins faculty and members of this virtual book club. During the zoom-based seminars, you’ll be encouraged to share your perspectives, drawing from your own experience and reading.  Meeting Schedule via Zoom Wednesday, September 2 at 5 PM – South Asia Wednesday, September 30 at 5 PM – Central Asia Wednesday, October 21 at 5 PM – Middle East Wednesday, November 18 at 5 PM – Conclusion Expectations for the Book Club To get the most out of this experience, each member of the book club will be expected to read a chapter from China’s Western Horizon in preparation for each of the live zoom discussion groups, which will be facilitated by Dr. Markey and a Ph.D. student from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Hasta Colman. Club members will also be encouraged to participate in online discussions between the live zoom sessions using a web-based platform built for the club. Hopkins at Home will provide excerpts from Dr. Markey's book, and full copies are readily available on Amazon.com, your local library, or the Johns Hopkins Library (for current Hopkins students, alumni, faculty, or staff) Book Link: https://www.amazon.com/Chinas-Western-Horizon-Beijing-Geopolitics/dp/0190680199 Daniel Markey (A&S, '95) is a senior research professor at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). He also serves as the academic director of the SAIS Global Policy Program. He teaches courses in international politics and policy. Dr. Markey’s latest book, China’s Western Horizon: Beijing and the New Geopolitics of Eurasia, was published by Oxford University Press in March 2020. From 2007-2015, Daniel Markey was a senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations.

SchoolofMedicine HopkinsatHomeSeptember 08, September 8, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome Tune in on Tuesday, September 8 at Noon EDT. We’ve always known that there are important differences between women and men. But this can become particularly important when thinking about health risk factors and recovery after a life altering event like a stroke. In this livestream we will discuss some of the key differences between men and women with respect to stroke and the importance of individualizing stroke prevention strategies and recovery programs to improve long-term outcomes. For more information about Dr. Marsh's work, visit https://www.marshlab.org/.  Dr. Marsh is a board certified vascular neurologist whose research interests include post-stroke recovery and patient-centered outcomes. She received her Bachelors of Arts in Neuroscience from the Johns Hopkins University where she continued her training for medical school, neurology residency, and cerebrovascular fellowship.  She is currently an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine within the Cerebrovascular Division.   Dr. Marsh’s research career began as an undergraduate when she studied recovery of language and attention in patients with acute stroke. As a resident, her interests expanded to include the acute management of stroke, and building tools to predict potential complications. She was awarded an R25 Research Training Grant through the National Institute of Health (NIH), and developed a model to quantify risk of hemorrhagic transformation in patients with acute ischemic stroke and an indication for anticoagulation. As a junior faculty member, she received a Johns Hopkins Clinician Scientist Award to further support her research efforts. She has greater than 30 peer reviewed publications in journals such as Stroke, Annals of Neurology, and the European Journal of Neurology, along with 3 book chapters, and 2 invited editorials.  In 2014, Dr. Marsh was named the Medical Director of the Stroke Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. She implemented the Bayview Stroke Intervention Clinic (BaSIC), a multi-disciplinary follow-up clinic designed to promote patient follow-up, reduce hospital readmission rates, and enhance post-stroke recovery. Her current focus is on the under-reported neurologic deficits (particularly with respect to depression, fatigue, and cognition) that significantly impair long-term functional outcome and patient satisfaction, despite scores on metrics such as the NIH stroke scale that indicate a “good recovery”. Her research, using magnetoencephalography (MEG) to determine the underlying pathophysiology of cognitive deficits following minor stroke, is supported by the American Heart Association and the NIH. She leads a team of vascular neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, neurointensivists, and rehabilitation specialists, who work together to provide the highest level of care to all stroke patients, resulting in better functional outcomes and improved quality of life.  /event/HAHMarsh

Sex Differences: Improving Stroke Recovery in Women
VirtualSeptember 10, September 10, ThursdaySo often in our organizations and communities, we fall into a cycle of reaction. A problem happens, and we respond. We fight fires. We contend with emergencies. Researchers call this "tunneling": We don't see the big picture, and we don't think about the future, we just keep pushing forward from one crisis to the next. What if instead we could shift our energies upstream -- uncovering and addressing the source of those problems? In this webinar, Dan Heath will reveal how some leaders have learned to spot problems in advance: There's a school district that can predict which students will drop out -- 4 years before graduation. There's an internet service company that can predict which customers are likely to cancel their subscriptions -- as early as two weeks after they sign up! When we shift from downstream response to upstream planning, it can cause miracles: One company eliminated 20 million customer support calls by asking, "How can we make sure our customers never need to call us?" Dan will share the three forces that push us downstream, as well as the powerful levers we can use to start preventing problems before they happen. Dan Heath is the co-author, along with his brother Chip, of four long-running bestsellers: Made to Stick, Switch, Decisive, and the The Power of Moments. The Heath Brothers’ books have sold over three million copies worldwide and been translated into 33 languages. Dan’s new book Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen debuted in March 2020 and was named one of the best books of the month by Apple’s iBooks and the Financial Times./event/upstream

Few industries are more globalized than the clean energy sectors that we urgently need to combat climate change, and few rely more strongly on China. China currently makes nearly half of the world’s wind turbines, more than two thirds of solar panels, and nearly 70 percent of lithium-ion batteries, a critical component of both electric vehicle and on-grid storage. As governments debate aggressive stimulus packages to encourage an economic recovery and announce bold goals to onshore manufacturing of critical technologies, what are the impacts on cleantech industries and our ability to meet global climate targets? Join Jonas Nahm as he reviews past attempts to revive domestic economies through green economic policy strategies and examines their prospects in the context of the current recession.  Jonas Nahm is Assistant Professor of Energy, Resources, and Environment at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Jonas' research interests focus on the intersection of economic and industrial policy, energy policy, and environmental politics. In particular, he studies the role of the state in processes of industrial restructuring that accompany responses to climate change and clean energy transitions more broadly. His work utilizes clean energy transitions in China, Germany, and the United States to engage two debates in comparative political economy: (1) the role of the state in shaping the international division of labor in highly globalized industries, and (2) sources of state capacity in interest group politics during periods of industrial restructuring. In addition to his work on renewable energy industries, Jonas has ongoing research projects on the politics of greening the global auto sector and the subnational determinants of climate policies. Prior to coming to Johns Hopkins SAIS, Jonas was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University.
