WEDNESDAY WORD: Service

In recognition of Veterans Day Nov. 11, Goldfarb wishes to honor and thank our military veterans for their service to our country. These veterans include some our faculty and staff, and former and current students.

GSON is proud to sponsor Veterans and Supporters Together, or VaST, our student club that supports active duty, reserve, and veteran students, as well as military spouses, family and friends. The club also serves veterans in the community. Find VaST on Facebook or on Twitter @GSONVaST.

 

Wednesday Word: Mammograms Can Help Save Lives

Are you ready to go pink to save more women's lives? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Unfortunately, many women skipped their routine mammograms over the past couple of years due to the pandemic. Regular mammograms are vitally important by detecting cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage.

Join the movement to educate women about breast cancer and the importance of mammograms by wearing pink Friday, Oct. 22 for BJC Goes Pink Day.

Wednesday Word: The Wait

Waiting isn’t easy. It can often be difficult to find patience for something so greatly anticipated--and so it is with the 2020 presidential election. Many waited most of the night or woke this morning, eager to know the “winner!” The evening progressed, the night returned and sun arose--votes were still being counted.

Wednesday Word: Committing to Change

A message from Dr. Michael Ward, Ph.D., RTR, FASRT, FMoSRT

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – Combining Our Talents for a Better Future:  Talking about Race - Commit Yourself to Change

In today’s times the very subject of race stirs up emotions of apprehension, anger, fear, shame, guilt and uncertainty.  Racism, is defined as a system of advantage and oppression based on race.  A way of organizing society based on dominance and subordination based on race.  Penetrates every aspect of personal, cultural, and institutional life.  Includes prejudice against people of color, as well as exclusion, discrimination against, suspicion of, and fear/hate of people of color.  Racism = Prejudice + the power of implement that prejudice.

Wednesday Word: Nurses' Voices Are Being Heard

More than ever before, consumers are beginning to recognize that nursing has become more diverse and requires an expanded set of skills. Furthermore, the profession has begun to gain significant prominence in the minds of consumers, prompting them to trust nurses more for their medical care. The increase number of senior patients and other complicated medical conditions, as well as the potential long-term effects of COVID-19 have resulted in an acceleration of growth in nursing.

Wednesday Word: The "Silent" Place

October 4 – 10 is National Mental Health Awareness Week

Long before COVID and long after COVID, the importance of improving mental health will remain essential. However, essentiality does not always yield the focus and awareness that is warranted.

Wednesday Word: Philanthropy

Merriam-Webster defines philanthropy as “goodwill to fellow members of the human race.” Going back to its Greek origins, the word philanthropy means “love of mankind.” It combines two Greek words: philos (love) and anthropos (to be human). That means anyone can engage in philanthropy, regardless of the size of their gift.

Wednesday Word: Unsung Heroes

September 13-19 is National Housekeeping Week. And although we take this time to send a special thank you to Goldfarb's housekeeping professionals, our gratitude for all they do is enduring.
