The Winter Term EMT Program is a credit bearing comprehensive, emergency medical internship that is co-sponsored by Middlebury College and Middlebury Regional EMS. The intensive month long program will provide students the opportunity to become nationally certified EM-B’s. EMT skills may be used to provide medical support on the ambulance, at the Open Door Clinic and other College and community events. The application process begins with students attending an information session in Coltrane on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 6:00 PM at which time you will learn about the program including the cost of the internship and complete a preliminary application. Once preliminary applications have been reviewed, students accepted into the program will be given three weeks to complete a series of tasks (form completion, immunizations, payment, etc). Students who fail the complete the application by the deadline will be removed from the roster and replaced with students on the wait list. Please email Hannah Benz (email@example.com) with questions.
Tuesday, September 26, 6:00 pm, Coltrane Lounge

“Endosteal Niche E-selectin Induces Mesenchymal-Epithelial Transition and Wnt Activation in Cancer Cells to Promote Bone Metastasis”
Mark Esposito ’11, a graduate student in the Kang lab was awarded the pre-doctoral F31 fellowship for his research proposal entitled Exploration of the dynamics of E-selectin interaction in breast cancer metastasis.
The colonization of distant organs by cancerous cells is a process responsible for the vast majority of deaths in oncology. Mark’s research seeks to identify molecular interactions that impact the dissemination and progression of these etastatic cancers with the goal of providing new therapeutic targets. This project focuses on how golgi-resident enzymes and extracellular membrane proteins interact to control the initial communication between cancer cells and the organs which they invade.

“Nursing alters behavioral and neural outcomes relevant for postpartum mental health”
Dr. Workman’s area of interest is Postpartum depression (PPD). PPD affects approximately 15% of women after giving birth. Currently, the causes of PPD are not fully understood. Motherhood comprises substantial hormonal and experiential changes that reorganize the brain and behavior. Dr. Workman is particularly interested in the neural, endocrine, and immunological changes that occur with reproductive experience (i.e., pregnancy and mothering) in females and how these changes are relevant for PPD. Further, her laboratory focuses on the role of hippocampal (and to a lesser extent, prefrontal cortical) remodeling in depression-like behaviors and cognitive changes following reproductive experience. Dr. Workman’s lab uses a variety of techniques including animal husbandry, behavioral testing, surgery, radioimmunoassay, immunohistochemistry, and brightfield and fluorescence microscopy. Specific areas of interest include:
- Postpartum changes in depression-like behaviors, stress responses, and stress sensitivity.
- Maternal experience and brain plasticity (hippocampal neurogenesis, neuronal remodeling, spine density).
- Hippocampal- and prefrontal cortical-dependent cognition during and after the postpartum period.
Joanna Workman, PhD received her B.A. in Psychology in 2005 from Ohio University and her PhD from The Ohio State University in 2010. After that, she moved to the west coast of Canada to pursue postdoctoral research at the University of British Columbia. In January 2015, she joined the faculty at the University at Albany as an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department.
This event is co-sponsored by the Biology, Psychology and Neuroscience departments.

Open Door Clinic Medical Interpreter Training
Saturday, October 7th 9:30 am – 4:00 pm, Axinn 219.
Because over 50% of their patients are native Spanish speakers, the Open Door Clinic is always in need of people who are bilingual or highly fluent in both English and Spanish. Medical Interpreters facilitate the delivery of care and obtain first-hand experience with public health while shadowing a wide variety of healthcare professionals.
They also have a great need for medical translators. Nearly all of the medical providers in Addison County have intake forms that require translation into Spanish. Attend this info session to learn more!
The mysteries of applying to professional schools through Middlebury will be deciphered. Join Mary Lothrop, the Director of Health Professions & STEM Advising, for this important meeting to learn about the internal Health Professions Committee review process and how professional schools will evaluate your application.
