The last person to be imprisoned for homosexuality in Canada was Everett George Klippert. This controversial decision leads directly to the Criminal Law Amendment Act (Bill C-150). It is an omnibus bill that, among other things, decriminalizes gay sex. However, the struggle continued.

In America, on June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular Greenwich Village bar catering to LGBTQ+ customers. Decades of escalating, state-sanctioned harassment led officers to expect everyone to leave quietly as usual. But if that had happened, it wouldn’t have made history.

Decades of oppression of the LGBTQ+ community, cultural shifts in the 1960s, and good troublemaking became a catalyst for change and a symbol for LGBTQ+ rights that evolved into today’s Pride festivals and marches. This course explores the key events and personalities in North America that ultimately shaped a global movement.

Topic: Platelets from 13-lined Ground Squirrels are Resistant to Cold Storage Lesion

Presented by:

Dr. Scott Cooper
Professor of Biology at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse

Abstract: Hibernating ground squirrels have dramatically decreased heart rates (3-5 beats per minute) and blood flow, which should put them at risk of forming blood clots. In response, they have several adaptations during hibernation that prevent blood clotting, including 3-fold decreases in Factors VIII (FVIII) and IX (FIX), and 10-fold decreases in von Willebrand factor (vWF), neutrophils, and platelets. Ground squirrel platelets are resistant to in vivo and in vitro cold storage lesions and are not rapidly cleared after transfusion. This could be due to a combination of altered signaling pathways, resistance to cold-induced cellular damage, and interactions with extracellular factors. This research is pioneering the use proteomic and metabolomic techniques to determine how ground squirrel platelets are resistant to cold storage lesions in platelets and could lead to medical advances to treat thrombocytopenia, store human platelets in the cold for transfusions, and regulate blood coagulation in cases of accidental or induced hypothermia.

Topic: Novel Roles of Platelets in Infection and Inflammation

Presented by

Dr. Robert A. Campbell
Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Utah

Abstract:

I have concentrated my research effort on dissecting the mechanisms underpinning how cells alter coagulation under normal and disease situations, as well as determining how hemostasis and thrombosis, in turns, alters cellular response during inflammation. In particular, I have focused on understanding the regulation of transcription and translation in megakaryocyte and platelets under health and disease. To accomplish these goals, I have developed in vitro and in vivo model systems to examine gene and protein expression in megakaryocytes and platelets. We have elucidated novel mechanisms regulating megakaryocyte and platelet function and activation under normal homeostasis, including translational control mechanism regulated by microRNAs. We have also discovered that platelets and megakaryocytes possess novel intrinsic host defense mechanisms in addition to their ability to respond to inflammatory signals that induce robust changes in gene and protein expression. We have also demonstrated these changes in gene expression alter thrombo‐inflammatory responses, which often occur in the setting of aging and in the context of stroke. We also have extensively studied platelet interactions with other cells including neutrophils and monocytes and how these interactions alter platelet and leukocyte responses. In addition, my laboratory has significant experience dissecting molecular pathway in platelets, which regulate thrombosis using murine model systems. This includes in vivo models of thrombosis such as venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and ischemic stroke. In these studies, we have used state‐of‐the‐art technologies including RNA‐seq to examine the transcriptional changes in platelets and megakaryocytes from mice to uncover novel genes critical for platelet responses during inflammation and thrombosis.

Agitation and verbal abuse are acute behavioral emergencies requiring immediate intervention. Traditional methods of treating agitated patients (i.e., routine restraints and involuntary medication) have been replaced with a much greater emphasis on a noncoercive approach. Experienced practitioners have found that if such interventions are undertaken with genuine commitment, successful outcomes can occur far more often than previously thought possible.

You’ve probably heard the word “diversity” pretty frequently both in and out of the workplace, but are you confident you understand what it means and how it might impact your life? 

Diversity—along with the complementary concepts of equity, and inclusion—impact your wellbeing, regardless of your background. Having a firm grasp on these terms is essential not only for a healthy workplace, but ultimately a healthier way of living.

This course will introduce you to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). By the time you’ve finished this course, you’ll be better equipped to understand the importance of DEI and take action to support diversity initiatives in the workplace.

Topics covered in this introductory course include how we’re socialized in the world, how biases form, and how these factors affect how we think and act—and feed into various systems of oppression. By the end of this course, you will:

1. Have a basic understanding of key DEI concepts.

2. Recognize how your specific background fits into the society you live in.

Understanding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is essential to creating a healthier community. But once you’ve grasped the conceptual elements of DEI, how do you put them into practice? And how can you apply your knowledge to your unique community?

In this course, you’ll learn how the stories we tell ourselves impact our well-being. You’ll discover the power of the narratives we tell as individuals, within social groups, and through institutions, and you’ll explore ways to counter these narratives through specific examples and exercises. By the end of this course, you will know how to:

1. Create space for diverse perspectives and critique current power structures.

2. Navigate the ambiguity and complexity that come with multiple perspectives.

3. Take action to promote equity and justice.

When it comes to innovation, creativity, and problem-solving, research consistently shows that diverse workforces perform better. But, for diversity to work, every employee must feel included. They need to have a seat at the table and know that they and their opinions matter.

So, how do you ensure that all employees—regardless of who they are—feel like they can be their true selves at work? In this course, we’ll first define what’s meant by diversity, inclusion, and belonging. You’ll then learn how to attract and retain diverse talent through belonging moments, allyship, and ongoing quantification.
