Holistic Interventions and Meditation
Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute – This 3 day course will address research based holistic approaches for the practitioner wishing to broaden their approach to wellness and pain management in their practice. Participants will learn manual techniques that broaden the intuitive and receptive use of their hands. Learning new strategies to preserve their own energy, wellness and passion while practicing appropriate self-care and boundaries will lead to helpful relationships with complex patients. This course will decipher what is anecdotal and what the research supports. This course will focus on: mind-body medicine, meditation, neural down regulation, increasing patient’s perceived locus of control, supplements, essential oils, yoga, external manual techniques to support and regulate the nervous system, pain theory, cognitive reframing and how to talk to patients about pain, provider boundaries and self-care. Providers will learn techniques to address the whole patient: mind, body, and spirit. Instruction will include decision making strategies to decide which intervention is most likely to be received well with different types of patients. The course will be a balance of lecture and labs. Lab activities will include meditation and mindfulness activities, dialogue practice, manual techniques and practice instructing and integrating techniques effectively within a treatment session, in a timely manner. Audience: This continuing education seminar is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives, and other rehabilitation professionals.

SOLD OUT: Airway Symposium
The Dawson Academy – Integrative Dental Medicine is a rapidly expanding field that every Dawson Dentist must understand. In this course, three experts will describe the detailed evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for disordered breathing, sleep apnea, bruxism, and associated local and systemic complications. Two common questions we receive at the Dawson Academy are: Are you going to teach an update course covering the growing significance of sleep apnea? Can you teach us the appropriate use of various splints for protecting teeth from bruxism, joint problems, sore muscles and headaches, and airway management? Actually, these two questions overlap. Research is showing a strong connection between poor breathing and many medical problems, including some TMJ signs and symptoms, headaches, bruxism, teeth erosion, gastric reflux, esophageal and throat cancer, chronic cough, asthma like symptoms, respiratory dysfunction, post nasal drip, ADD, cardiac arrhythmia, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and the list goes on… We have an opportunity in Dentistry to play a very significant role in the diagnosis and medical management of what now is described as “disordered breathing”. These problems are typically present during daytime breathing, as well as nighttime, and can dramatically affect total health. Often these medical problems can have dental solutions, including oral appliance, orthodontics, and orthognathic surgery. Course Objectives: - Discover the effects of early childhood disordered breathing on growth and development, including dental arches, occlusion, nasal passages,respiratory issues, and cognitive development. - Recognize the signs and symptoms of disordered breathing and sleep apnea. - Develop protocols for screening patients for disordered breathing including sleep apnea. - Create medical protocols for testing and diagnosis. - Review Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) – the appropriate medical usage for snoring/sleep apnea/hypopnea. - Design protocols for managing snoring/sleep apnea/hypopnea in the dental office. - Define how to take a correct bite registration for anterior repositioning the mandible to open the airway using oral appliance therapy. - Review medical insurance codes and financial options for treating sleep apnea. - Recognize the possible occlusal complications associated with sleep apnea appliances and how to manage them. - Identify the Buteyko principles of retraining proper breathing, including mouth taping. - Utilize a decision tree for evaluating and diagnosing Masticatory System disorders. - Specify the various occlusal splint options and their appropriate usage. - Prepare fees for various treatment regimens involving splint therapy.

Demagogue For President: The Rhetorical Brilliance of Trump
USF College of Arts and Sciences – The USF Department of English Presents: Demagogue For President: The Rhetorical Brilliance of Donald Trump USF Library - Grace Allen Room, 4th Floor Jennifer Mercieca, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Texas A&M University Director, Aggie Agora Trump possesses an arrogance and volatility that makes most voters recoil. So how has he maintained a grip on a segment of the Republican base that – at least, for now – seems unshakable? And how has his support persisted, despite the fact that some have called him a demagogue and a fascist, or that political observers have found parallels between him and polarizing figures like George Wallace, Joseph McCarthy, Father Coughlin – even Hitler? As a scholar of American political rhetoric, Mercieca will discuss the use and abuse of rhetorical strategy in public discourse. Scrutinizing Trump’s rhetorical skills can partially explain his profound and persistent appeal. Dr. Jennifer Mercieca is an historian of American political rhetoric. She writes about American political discourse, especially as it relates to citizenship, democracy, and the presidency. She is Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University, Founding Director of the Aggie Agora, Immediate Past Chair of the Public Address Division of the National Communication Association, founding editor of Citizen Critics, and creator of the #teamrhetoric hashtag on Twitter. This is part of the Democracy in the Post-Truth Era Lecture Series. USF’s Department of English brings internationally recognized rhetoric experts to Tampa Bay who specialize in understanding public discourse and democracy to explore the communicative opportunities, obligations, and responsibilities of citizens in a post-truth era. This symposium is supported, in part, by the USF Research & Innovation Internal Awards Program and co-sponsored by the English Graduate Student Association.

Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition
Henry Plant Museum – The Gasparilla invasion takes over the Henry B. Plant Museum! Join us for an exhibit on the rich history of Tampa’s oldest and most fun-loving community festival. The new exhibit, Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition explores Tampa’s premier party, attended by a motley crew of the famous and infamous, the beautiful people and bad dudes. Learn more about the early Gasparilla parades and enjoy vintage photographs from 1904 to the present. Gasparilla: A Tampa Tradition will run from January 19th to March 4th, 2018 and is underwritten by Steve and Janice Straske. This year the Museum is proud to feature three Gasparilla gowns designed by African American fashion designer, Ann Lowe. Lowe began her career in Tampa in the 1920s and her fashions are highly regarded today. She is best known for creating the bridal gown and bridesmaids gowns for Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in 1953. Each of the Gasparilla gowns is rare and unique featuring elaborate beaded designs. The gowns have never before been exhibited together. They were worn to Gasparilla Balls and Coronations in 1924, 1926, and 1957. The dresses underwent a two-year conservation treatment (underwritten by The Henry B. Plant Museum Society, Inc.) and were stabilized and repaired by Conservator Jessica Hack of New Orleans. In addition to early memorabilia and original gowns, visitors can enjoy film coverage on the celebration. "Memories of Gasparilla Festivals" includes scenes from the 1920s and reveals pirate capers and images of early parades. This film is from the private collection of the Howell family. It is narrated by John Boushall, III; H.L. Culbreath, Jr.; L.G. "Ted" Delavergne, Jr.; Jerry E. Fogarty; George B. Howell, III; Fred R. Martin, III; Mary Alsbrook Smith and Frances Thomas Toole. Film footage from Joseph V. Reineman describing the life of a pirate on Invasion Day will also be shown continuously. Over the years, the original Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla has been joined by dozens of new krewes (social clubs), all of which contribute to the general merriment and community pride of the occasion.
