UVa-Wise to offer minor in public health in fall 2018

UVa-Wise News - Fri, 01/05/2018 - 1:59pm

Students at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise will have an opportunity in the fall to pursue a minor in public health, a curriculum designed to help them develop intellectual and practical skills, personal and social responsibility, and to participate in interdisciplinary and applied learning. The minor is aligned with the mission of the College’s Healthy Appalachia Institute, and gives UVa-Wise and HAI an opportunity to grow and become leaders in public health education, research and practice.

The interdisciplinary field of public health combines natural and social science to prevent diseases, prolong life and promote health through organized community effort. The minor will bridge biology, criminal justice, psychology, sociology, education and humanities to address the biological, sociocultural, political and economic issues that influence population health across the lifespan.

Margie Tomann, director of Healthy Appalachia Institute, will coordinate the minor in public health and will teach two of the required courses.

“Public health education is essential to introduce undergraduates to possible careers, and for the benefit of society as a whole,” Tomann said. “Health literacy and an understanding of how health of is shaped by the social, economic, and physical environment, are beneficial for students in any academic field.”

Tomann’s students, some who chose careers in health and medicine, reported that their perspectives changed after taking Introduction to Public Health: Appalachian Perspectives at UVa-Wise. They learned that health is more than just an individual’s lifestyle decisions or behaviors. Recent graduates often send Tomann notes saying the public health classes were beneficial during their medical school application and interview process. The student response and interest in additional courses caused Tomann to see a need to establish the minor in public health.

“It will serve as a foundation for further study in various fields such as public health, social sciences, health professions, law, technology and health care management,” Tomann said. “Students will be prepared to enter the public health workforce or continue their education in a master or doctoral level program in any field, and they will leave with the knowledge and skills to promote and protect the health of their communities, regardless of their career choice.”

The minor is designed to engage students in public health education and to increase the capacity of Healthy Appalachia Institute and UVa-Wise to address public health challenges through academic outreach, research, community engagement and collaboration. The minor will consist of 18 credit hours, six required hours and 12 hours selected from interdisciplinary courses. Introduction to Public Health: Appalachian Perspectives, one of the required courses for the Minor, has been offered since 2015 and is currently scheduled in Spring 2018. Introduction to Global Health, the second required course, will be first offered in Fall 2018.

For additional information about the minor in public health, contact Margie Tomann at mmt6m@uvawise.edu or 276-376-4882

UVa-Wise, community sample Chick-fil-A as crew prepares for Monday opening

UVa-Wise News - Fri, 01/05/2018 - 1:10pm

Victoria Mullins, a UVa-Wise sophomore, had an eventful and exciting lunch on Friday. The Clintwood native was one of the first in line to sample the lunch offerings at the new Chick-fil-A in the Slemp Student Center on campus.

“I’m really glad it’s here,” she said as waited to join the growing line as the fast food chain staff prepared for a soft opening so UVa-Wise employees, students and community members could try free samples of the chain’s popular items. “I’m changing my meal plan to the swipe plan so I can eat here all the time. I’m looking forward to it.”

Mullins said the fact that the Chick-fil-A staff had to be trained by the corporate personnel impressed her.

“Every friend I know is super excited,” she added.

After a brief ribbon cutting featuring Chancellor Donna P. Henry and officials with the Wise County and City of Norton Chamber of Commerce, Chartwells official Brett Lawson welcomed those in line to a free lunch.

Mullins placed her sandwich, fries and a drink on her tray and looked for a place to tuck in. Fellow student Emily Mullins, no relation, joined her. Both declared the first bite delicious.

Chancellor Henry and her daughters, Jessie and Maggie, enjoyed lunch with the crowd as well.

“It tastes pretty good,” Jessie Henry said.

Lawson, head of the Chartwells Dining Services on campus, was all smiles as the crowd moved quickly through the line.

“I’m extremely excited that we will be open to the public on Monday,” he said. “I’ve been talking to students here for 16 years and Chick-fil-A has always been at the top of the list when we ask them what food choices they would like to see on campus.”

Lawson said having a Chick-fil-A at UVa-Wise is a great opportunity for local residents who are looking for jobs in the region as well.

“We’ve hired 16 new employees,” Lawson said. “Six of them are students, and we have plans to hire more students as demand increases.”

Lawson believes the new fast food facility will attract more students to campus as well. The chain remains at the top of the list of most popular fast food establishments in the United States.

Rick Colley, executive director of the Wise County and City of Norton Chamber of Commerce, said the success of the Chick-fil-A will show other companies that the region can support new restaurants. Colley added that having the popular chain on campus will also be a draw for UVa-Wise in terms of growth.

The eatery is located on the fourth floor of the Slemp Student Center. It will open to the public on Jan. 8, and the hours of operation will be 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The restaurant will be open on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Cavalier Women Look to Halt Skid at Shepherd Saturday

UVa-Wise Sports - Fri, 01/05/2018 - 10:59am

UVa-Wise came up just short Thursday at Fairmont State as the Cavaliers dropped a 74-66 decision. Despite the loss, UVa-Wise had one of its more balanced scoring efforts of the year. Freshman Ada Stanley recorded a season-high 12 points in her first collegiate start while sophomore Cynita Webb posted a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Freshman Bianca Lockamy had 11 points while Adalmaryz Rivera - Gomez and Hanna Oliver had 10 points each. The 10 points by Rivera - Gomez marked the first time in the junior's career that she had recorded double digit scoring totals in back-to-back games while the double-double by Webb was the fifth of the season. The Cavs also shortened their rotation as all five starters played at least 27 minutes in the contest; UVa-Wise received just 13 points off the bench in the game. Five of the 13 points came from Judy Kaylynn Cummings who went 2-of-5 from the field. Oliver's 10 points marked the fifth consecutive game the freshman has cracked double-figure scoring and the 10th time the guard has reached at least 10 points in her inaugural collegiate campaign. The Cavs have yet to win a road game and are in danger of digging themselves too big of a hole in terms of making the league tournament. Currently, the team is a game out of the final tournament berth but must pass two schools to reach the No. 10 spot in the standings.

Cavalier Women Visit Fairmont State to Open 2018

UVa-Wise Sports - Wed, 01/03/2018 - 5:53am

About UVa-Wise UVa-Wise last won on Dec. 6, when the team knocked off West Virginia Weselyan 54-47 in the Prior Center. Since then, Elise Clyburn's squad has dropped a trio of regular season contests and an exhibition affair at Radford University. Sophomore forward Cynita Webb continues to be a force inside for the Cavaliers as the 5-foot-11 Virginia Beach, Va. product is averaging 10.3 points and 9.5 rebounds per game. Turnovers have been an issue for UVa-Wise as the Cavs are averaging 22.6 turnovers per contest; on the season, UVa-Wise has turned it over 249 times compared to just 184 turnovers by their opponents. Still looking for its first road win of the year, Clyburn's team is being outscored by 16 points a game on the road. The turnover problem has been even more problematic away from Wise as the club is averaging 23.8 turnovers per game. Defense has also been an issue away from home as teams are shooting 41.8 percent from the field against UVa-Wise, including a 38.3 percent showing from beyond the arc. A positive for the Cavs is the amount of home games the team has remaining on the schedule. After Thursday's game, UVa-Wise will play five of its next seven games at the Prior Center and nine of its last 15.
