SheridanLibraries HopkinsatHome Virtual July 27, July 27, Tuesday Brought to you by Hopkins at Home  Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome REGISTER BELOW to tune in on Tuesday, July 27th, 2021 at 12 PM ET Open source software has become a key driver of economic activity, community engagement, and societal impact. Consider that many of the tools used to analyze and trace Covid-19 are open source. The open source programs office (OSPO) has become a widely used construct in the private sector for managing and sharing open source software. Now, Johns Hopkins has launched the first university-based OSPO that treats open source software as a primary research object as well as created the first Institute for Applied Open Source that builds upon the OSPO to empower the use of open source software for research, education and translation into social impact. In this livestreamed presentation, Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Research Data Management and Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center at the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University, will share how Hopkins is breaking new ground with innovative open source programs that build digital services for Baltimore community centers, novel educational programs known as semesters of code, and partnerships with other open source developers from the City of Paris.the-open-source-software-revolut

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual July 22, July 22, ThursdayThe intersection of two pandemics: COVID-19 and dementia COVID-19 disproportionately impacted older adults who are also at risk for more severe outcomes and extended stays in hospitals. The stay-at-home orders around the country and no-visitor policies implemented in many retirement communities and nursing homes also impacted older adults who rely on additional outside assistance for socialization and medical care. These lockdowns, shutdowns, and extended isolated hospital stays all impact the cognitive function of older adults, leading researchers to believe there may be an increase in dementia in these older adults in future years. Join Bryan James, PhD, as he discusses how isolation allows the cognitive research capacity to change, leading to higher risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.   Bryan James, PhD, is an epidemiologist at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center (RADC) and Associate Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, Section of Epidemiology Research, at the Rush University Medical Center. His research focuses on the neuroepidemiology of Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions of aging. This includes determining how social and behavioral determinants and medical encounters contribute to cognitive decline and dementia, as well as describing the societal impact of dementia. His recently concluded K01 studied the link between hospitalization and cognitive decline in older patients. James has contributed to the Alzheimer's Association Annual Facts & Figures Report since 2010. He is the host of Epidemiology Counts, the official podcast of the Society for Epidemiologic Research, and is a social media editor for the American Journal of Epidemiology. He received his PhD from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2009.  cognitive-decline

ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship Affinity July 21, July 21, WednesdaySponsored by the Arts, Entertainment, Media, and Entrepreneurship Affinity Facts Machine is a show by and for people who are curious about everything — but especially the things that make them laugh! Accordingly, their podcast asks and answers questions like: Why is the nation of Finland rising out of the ocean? What is the legal definition of a cookie? Why were the Apollo 16 astronauts so gassy? And which animals just really suck? Scientists by day and pub trivia hosts by night, Em, Noah, and Rob leverage their scientific curiosity and delight in obscure minutiae to bring you a show that explores life’s silliest, most unexpected, and outright awe-inspiring stories. And puns. So many puns. In every show, they share fascinating facts and the larger stories behind them, concluding with a pub-style trivia quiz loosely inspired by that show's theme. MEET THE PERFORMERS As a research scientist at Memorial Sloan Kettering, co-host Emily Costa’s main focus is hitting chemoresistant lung cancer where it biologically hurts. When she’s not pipetting pink liquids or over-enthusiastically sharing spider facts, you can find her reading, trying recipes that involve immersion blenders, or tending to her ever-expanding family of houseplants. Co-host Noah Guiberson (A&S '15) got his start writing and hosting trivia nights in the rugged pub quiz circuits of Baltimore and New York. Aside from recording and editing episodes of Facts Machine, Noah produces Science 101 at Caveat. A Weill Cornell neuroscientist by day, he seeks to answer the greatest trivia question of them all: How does the brain work? Co-host Dr. Rob Frawley, PhD is an alumnus of Weill Cornell Graduate School where he studied orthopedics and cell biology. A long-time NYC Trivia Host, Rob now works with BioBus Inc. delivering science to schools all over New York City with a bus full of microscopes, amazing samples, and funny games. Rob spends the rest of his time swimming and waiting for it to be Pi Day. No outside food or drink is allowed inside the venue.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual July 14, July 14, WednesdayVitamin & Me: Why Nutritional Supplements are Crucial to Your Health Much research has been done on multivitamin intake, including recommended intake for certain populations such as those who are pregnant and young children. How does one know what vitamin(s) are needed? How is information on supplements disseminated and shared with those who need it most, and then how are vitamins provided? Join us for a conversation on the public health need for vitamins and nutritional information with the CEO of Vitamin & Me and how Vitamin & Me is addressing this issue. Jessica Houston received her MSPH in 2015 at The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the Department of International Health-Human Nutrition.  While at Hopkins, she received rigorous training in the development of mobile health applications in health systems, statistical analysis, clinical trial design, and global public health and prevention.  She was the recipient of the Elsa Orent Keiles Nutrition- International Health Award and was a Johnson and Johnson Healthcare Scholar.  Jessica has greater than 15 years of clinical trial experience, epidemiologic data analytics training, and molecular science research.  She developed a nutritional-based predictive analytics model to identify subclinical disease.  Her research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and books.  Previously, Jessica was a Global Public Health Analyst for the Vitality Institute, a healthcare think tank in New York City.  Additionally, she received a graduate degree in education with a focus on nutrition from the University of Virginia.  Jessica lives in Florida with her husband and son. Vitamin & Me Houston, founder and CEO of Vitamin & Me and author of EatClean30, did not set out to create a vitamin brand. As a Johns Hopkins educated nutritional scientist, public health professional, and mother, she made it her mission to give women everywhere access to the nutrition they need. Driven by a passion to improve the lives of women and children across the world, she launched Vitamin & Me, a SAAS data analytics service that matches you to the nutrients you need and delivers them to your door each month. And with every purchase, Vitamin & Me provides nutrition to women, men and children around the world. So far, we’ve given 120,000 micronutrient grants in 74 countries, including every state in the US.  And we’re just getting started!   Podcast: Vitamin & Me Check out the April 14 podcast episode featuring Dr. Alfred Sommer, Dean Emeritus of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Instagram: @vitaminandme Contact: jhouston@vitaminandme.comsupplemental-nutrition
