Trauma Informed Compassionate Classrooms: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Behavior, Improve Learning Outcomes and Increase Student Engagement is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 09, 2019 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Santa Fe, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.25 clock hours of continuing education. Target Audience: • General Educators • Special Educators • School Administrators • School Psychologists • Social Workers • Guidance Counselors • School Nurses • Directors of Special Education • Speech-Language Pathologists • Occupational Therapists • Paraprofessionals Course Description: As an educator, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the social and emotional needs of all your students. This can be challenging enough with typical learners but it is even more difficult with those who have experienced trauma or have mental health challenges. Students who have experienced trauma often present as difficult to engage and display problematic behavior such as a low frustration tolerance, angry outbursts or difficult social relationships. These behaviors all get in the way of teaching and learning. When a student has experienced trauma, he/she often spends much of the day in fight/flight/freeze mode which limits their capacity to learn. Their outwardly aggressive and irritable behaviors also disrupt the flow in the classroom, requiring your time and attention. Despite the amount of time you invest in behavior charts or incentives for good behavior, traditional behavioral approaches to classroom management and a punitive approach to discipline simply are not effective. Join Dr. Reese and learn how a trauma-informed approach will greatly reduce challenging behavior, improve student engagement and increase learning outcomes. Leave this seminar with new strategies, tools and resources to reduce students’ impulsiveness, aggressive behaviors and inattention and increase their focus, attention and compassion. While this positive approach is absolutely essential for students with trauma, it will also greatly benefit each and every student in your classroom. Return to your school with: • Research-based practices to establish a trauma-informed classroom • A plan to develop positive relationships and build trust with your hard-to-reach students • Prove techniques for communicating more effectively and collaboratively with challenging students • Cognitive skill-building strategies which incorporate the science of neuroplasticity and the strengths-based perspective of neurodiversity Objectives: • Analyze the ways in which poverty and mental health contribute to trauma responses thus informing your approach to working with all students. • Determine how trauma impacts a child’s development and develop strategies for meeting his or her needs. • Explore how exposure to adverse childhood experiences determines the likelihood of developmental trauma and its impact on level of functioning across the lifespan. • Establish a collaborative approach to discipline and demonstrate how this fosters intrinsic motivation for behavior change in the child. • Practice techniques to establish positive relationships and build trust with hard-to-reach students thus increasing their social and academic success. • Explore mindfulness activities that foster student self-awareness, self-regulation and the ability to focus as it relates to impulsive behavior and attention.

Tuberculosis: Immunity and Immune Evasion (A2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 16 - 20, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description Tuberculosis remains the most common fatal infectious disease worldwide due to the absence of a sufficiently effective vaccine. Two critical barriers to the development of an effective TB vaccine are the incomplete understanding of the mechanisms of protective immunity to TB, and of the mechanisms of immune evasion by M. tuberculosis. The interactions among speakers and attendees at this conference will promote collaborations between scientists with complementary expertise and that work in geographically distinct institutions, including those in high TB burden regions. This conference will present new knowledge on mechanisms of protective immunity to M. tuberculosis, and promote dialogue between immunologists and scientists, in different areas of expertise, to fill gaps in knowledge. Participants will also discuss advances in TB vaccine development and vaccine immunology. Finally, this conference will cover topics on the advances in other fields of immunology and other infectious diseases characterized by pathogen persistence which will help to inform development of effective TB vaccines. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Diabetes: Glucose Control and Beyond (J5) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 27 - 31, 2020 at Santa Fe Community Convention Center, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description Modern technology has created a favorable climate for the “perfect metabolic storm”. Triggered by lifestyle habits that promote overnutrition and inactivity, Westernized societies are experiencing epidemic rates of obesity and its attendant co-morbidities. Foremost among these is type 2 diabetes mellitus, which is projected to reach a global prevalence of 10% by the year 2045. This grim epidemiological forecast has inspired intense efforts to unravel the molecular mechanisms that link positive energy balance to glucose intolerance and metabolic decline. This Diabetes meeting will assemble international leaders and rising stars in diverse biomedical disciplines with common interests in understanding and combatting cardiometabolic diseases. The program showcases new insights into the molecular underpinnings of obesity-induced dysfunction of the major peripheral organs that coordinate energy flux and glucose control: skeletal and cardiac muscles, the pancreas, adipose tissue, the liver and gut. Thematic emphasis will center on nutrient sensing and signaling, inter-organ crosstalk, mechanisms of insulin resistance, mitochondrial bioenergetics, islet biology and genetics of diabetes. A major goal of the meeting is to provide a forum that encourages interactions between basic and translational scientists at all career levels to critically evaluate recent advances and current controversies. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be further enhanced by the concurrent meeting on Islet Biology: From Gene to Cell to Micro-Organ. This meeting will consider metabolism in relation to islet function, in addition to studies of islet cell plasticity and differentiation. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Antibodies as Drugs: From B Cell Biology to New Treatments (B1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 02 - 06, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description Since the mid-1990s, antibodies have grown steadily into a clinically important pharmaceutical class with over 70 antibody-based drugs approved, predominantly in oncology, autoimmunity and inflammation. As the antibody drug field has expanded and matured in recent years, the field has moved from empirical strategies to deep knowledge-based, designer approaches for which understanding of mechanisms of action is critical; there has also been a trend toward increasingly specialized meetings with a narrow focus such as cancer immunotherapy, bispecifics or B cell biology. In contrast, we are proposing a scientifically diverse program that spans a broad range of different and cutting-edge topics relevant to antibody drug development, including antibodies for infectious disease and antibody pharmacology, topics which are often under-represented at major antibody conferences. Additionally, we have chosen a diverse collection of speakers from junior investigators to seasoned researchers from a wide range of institutions in at least eight different countries. We hope and expect that this approach will stimulate ‘cross-pollination’ between disciplines that span the gamut from basic to translational to clinical sciences with the common theme of antibody drugs for the benefit of patients Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Disruptive Technologies and Opportunities for Brain Therapeutics (Q3) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 16 - 19, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description CNS disorders represent a major unmet medical need with associated societal burden that is unsustainable due to changing demographics (e.g., aging population). Recognizing this issue, major investments in basic and translational research have been made by government and non-profit institutions world-wide. On the other hand, pharmaceutical companies and equity investors continue to view brain therapeutics as a relatively risky area of investment. This symposium aims to highlight breakthrough technologies and approaches to de-risk CNS-targeted therapies. More importantly, with the proposed agenda and speakers we aim to show that integration of cross-disciplinary knowledge and approaches has the potential to overcome the contemporary challenges of CNS drug development. A unique aspect of this symposium is to bring in scientists from a range of disciplines, who rarely participate in the same meetings, in order to create an environment that can lead to disruptive innovation. Proposed speakers will provide both general overview as well as in-depth technical presentations to engage the participants in topics ranging from disease biology-informed target selection to novel medicinal chemistry approaches, biomarkers, and clinical trial designs. Advances in technologies such as genomics, imaging and brain delivery will be highlighted throughout. In addition, the speakers proposed represent public and private sectors, young and established scientists and world-wide geography. This meeting aspires to create an interdisciplinary environment that could also spawn new collaborations that would outlast the meeting duration to address the unmet medical need of CNS disorders. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Cerebral Fluid Flow and Function: Lymphatics, Glymphatics and the Choroid Plexus (Q4) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 16 - 19, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has long been a "missing link" in our understanding of brain form, function, and disease. However, recent work has begun to illuminate how the CSF regulates the brain in ways that extend far beyond its passive historical roles and provides unique opportunities for studying, diagnosing, and potentially treating brain disorders. This Keystone conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of new and established scientists to capture this newfound excitement about the CSF. By exchanging discoveries - about its sources (choroid plexus), routes (glymphatics), drainage (lymphatics), and clinical utilities - and by fostering new ideas, collaborations, and training opportunities, this conference aims to coalesce an international community that can propel the CSF field forward. (Optional/TBD: This meeting is being held jointly with the "medicinal chemistry to cross the blood-brain barrier/BBB" meeting to stimulate thinking about CSF-based medicinal therapies, given the advantages of CSF over blood in being "behind" the BBB and in equilibrating with the interstitial fluid surrounding brain cells.) Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
