Come hear biology candidate’s lecture today in Hoover 102

Monday, May 13th, 2019

The university community is invited to a biology candidate research lecture presented by Dr. Elizabeth DuPriest from 11 a.m. to noon today (Tuesday) in Hoover 102.

Fetal and early childhood environmental influences can “program” a baby’s health and risk of disease that they experience later in life. Using nutritional and transgenic models, Dr. DuPriest will explain how maternal influences shape early growth and the structure and function of the offspring’s kidneys, liver, and adipose tissue.

The title of Dr. DuPriest’s lecture is “Developmental Origins of Health and Disease: Thank Your Mother for Your Good Health!”

PT research team seeks volunteers for bunions study

Sunday, May 12th, 2019

Do you have experience with bunions? Then we need you!

George Fox University’s School of Physical Therapy is conducting research on bunions. Our research team is interested in looking at two groups of people: 1) persons who had surgery for their bunions, and 2) those who currently have bunions. 

We would like to know how the foot functions following bunion surgery. In order to answer this question, we are collecting data on how people walk and on muscle strength.

Testing is conducted in the physical therapy department. The tests are simple to perform and require about an hour to complete. The results of our study will help to provide direction as to the best form of rehabilitation after surgery or in lieu of surgery.

If you are interested in our study, would like more information or would like to enroll as a participant, please contact Jaymee at 808-728-8353 or email jkau17@georgefox.edu. Jaymee will be happy to answer all your questions. There is a monetary incentive for participation in this study.

Phase II remains open today and tomorrow

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

Plant Services is hosting its annual Phase II event this week. Feel free to swing by the Macy basement between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. today (Thursday), or between 8 a.m. and noon on Friday, May 10.

After students and staff view the items, whatever remains will be donated to the International Student Emergency Fund and other local charities.

At the end of every school year, many students have good reusable items that they do not want to take home over the summer. These items often include blankets, clothing, kitchen supplies, small appliances, radios, room decorations, furniture, etc. 

In an effort to keep the dumpsters from overflowing and to be better stewards of our resources, Phase II was initiated. Many students have benefited from these items. For example, summer work-study students often find items they need for apartment living.

Questions? Contact Dwayne Astleford at dastlefo@georgefox.edu.

Campus Public Safety office offers tips on staying safe this summer

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

The Campus Public Safety office would like to offer these safety tips as we approach summer …

  • Don’t prop open doors! Purchase a fan now before they are gone for the summer, and use it for air circulation in your room or apartment.
  • If you want to sleep with open windows, buy some wooden dowels and cut them three to four inches shorter than the width of your window track. That way, it locks the window so that nobody can enter from the outside, but you still get cooler evening air coming in.
  • Walk in pairs at night, or call Campus Public Safety for an escort back to your residence.
  • Stay hydrated! Your water bottle should be your constant companion.
  • Use sunscreen and wear a hat.
  • If you are working outdoors and begin to feel faint from the heat, get out of the heat and into a cooler location and sit down, rest and hydrate. Learn the signs of heat stroke.
  • Do any outdoor work earlier in the morning when the temperatures are cooler.
  • Use a windshield screen in your car to help reduce the internal temperature, and never leave a child or pet in a car! Temperatures can climb rapidly in a closed car in the summer, and it can be deadly.
  • If you see somebody who doesn’t belong on campus, contact Campus Public Safety immediately with a good physical description of the person and location so we can check them out.
  • Stay safe and have a great summer!
