Congratulations to Jennifer Patterson , CSI Early Childhood Education Child Care Labs Coordinator! 

Patterson was recently awarded the Idaho AEYC's Power to the Profession Award. This award recognizes a passionate and innovative early childhood professional with a strong commitment to high-quality early learning in Idaho. It is awarded annually at the Idaho AEYC Professional Development Institute.
Patterson graduated from Idaho State University in 2005 with a blended certificate in early childhood education. She had the privilege of teaching toddlers and college students for four years and then preschoolers and college students for another 10 years in the College of Southern Idaho's Early Childhood Education Program. The past four years, she has been the coordinator of CSI's Early Learning Center and Lab Schools. The center offers all-day care in an appropriate learning environment for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners. "This is a program that all children should have the opportunity to attend," a co-worker of Patterson said.

"It is my joy to provide quality programs for young children," Patterson said. "I stepped into my latest position with a desire to make all of our programs exceptional. Every program is NAEYC accredited, and I work hard to continue to grow and improve our programs and myself each year. I am very proud of the programs we offer to children and families. Kudos to the amazing staff that makes this possible."

One of Patterson's nominators for this award said, "When I met Jennifer, the first thing I noticed was her quirky devotion to color-coded organization, an obsession with to-do lists, and her outspoken passion for treating children and families with respect and dignity. She isn't shy about demanding the best for children in her community. She's touched countless lives with her unparalleled work ethic and unwavering commitment to best practices. You can search the entire state, but I am positive you will not find another early childhood professional that can parallel Jennifer's devotion, commitment and passion."

No matter the challenges life has thrown at Patterson she has faced them head on and been extremely successful. Please join us in congratulating and thanking her for her commitment to the College of Southern Idaho.

CSIFairSave a Booth for the Annual Community Fair at CSI
Greetings!

During the first week of classes the CSI Program Board offers free and fun activities, goodies, and networking opportunities for CSI students. One of those opportunities is the annual Community Fair. The Community Fair is a campus-wide event that takes place during the first week and is the best time for students to have fun, socialize, network, receive free stuff, and exposure to student life opportunities not only on our campus but in our community! It is only held in the Fall Semester and is a great opportunity for you to brag about your department or highlight student involvement or leadership opportunities through clubs and organizations you are involved in or tied to your department. It is also a business vendor fair; with the purpose of fostering a relationship between the College of Southern Idaho, Twin Falls and other surrounding communities. Businesses and community agencies who take part in the fair will have giveaways, information about their services, and be able to have a one-on-one interaction with students, faculty and staff to learn more about services that are in the Twin Falls community. We look forward to your participation in this event which will be held during the first week of classes on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m
Click here to fill out the application and then return it Jasmine Lopez ( jlopez@csi.edu) to make sure you are on our list of participants.

Community Fair Booth Benefits:
  • You will be able to connect and network with CSI students.
  • You will have an opportunity to network with local businesses.
  • You will be able to distribute information about your department/organization.
  • You will be able to see what other departments have going on around campus.
Booth Space:

Booth spaces are given a table and two chairs, unless noted otherwise, and a limited number of spots with electricity are available and will be decided on a first-come, first-served basis. The purpose of the Community Fair is to provide an environment where students can learn about the various vendors and organizations within the CSI and Twin Falls Community. To help entice people your way maybe a giveaway or sweet treat at your booth will help. (Make sure it falls within the college's policies.)

This event is sponsored by CSI's Program Board in the Office of Student Affairs. If you know of a business or non-CSI entity that is interested in taking part in this please let me know as their application is different.

Have a great day!

StLukesSt. Luke's Joins with Apple Health
Patients can view information on iPhone, iPad
 
You know what they say about an apple a day.
 
Now, for St. Luke's patients, there may be something to it. The network is one of 50 nationwide to partner  with Apple Health, allowing anyone with an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch to carry medical records in their  pocket.
 
Through the Apple Health app, patients can store and track lab results, prescription lists, immunization  records, allergies and personal health changes like weight, blood sugar and cholesterol. It also synchs with St.  Luke's own myChart system and pulls records from participating out-of-state doctors, so patients can manage and
coordinate their care.
 
The idea: Put people "at the center of their care," said St. Luke's Chief Information Officer Reid Stephan,  and keep them out of costly procedures and interventions.
 
"Most of us carry our phones at all times," he said. "Being able to reach in your pocket, open the app and  see your exact prescription, or that you already recently had a blood test, is powerful for the patient and their  provider. It saves time, helps save money by preventing repeat tests, and could save a life when you consider  complications like allergies and potential medical interactions."
 
According to the hospital, medical information does not travel on Apple's network, and Apple doesn't  receive, control or transmit health data. Those interested can open the Apple Health app, which comes standard  on most devices, tap the Heath Records line and follow the instructions to link with their myChart account.

It's Quitting Time! SCPHD Offering Free Tobacco Cessation Classes

TWIN FALLS- It is never too late to quit! Beginning August 1th, 2018, South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) is partnering with The Wellness Tree Community Clinic, Shoshone Family Medical Center, Cassia Regional Medical Center, and St. Luke's Wood River to offer a new set of Freedom From Smoking® classes to help residents become tobacco-free.

Tobacco causes a majority of the preventable death and disease in the United States. According to the CDC, every year more than 440,000 people die from smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. Meanwhile, around 8.6 million people are living with serious illness as a result of smoking and/or use of smokeless tobacco.

"Our classes are designed to help people overcome their tobacco addiction and take control of their health," said Cody Orchard, Health Education Specialist. "These classes are just a start, if you want to quit and can't make it to a class call (208) 737-5968 and we will work around your schedule."

The Freedom From Smoking® program was developed 35 years ago by the American Lung Association and is offered at no cost. The program has helped hundreds of thousands of people end their addiction to nicotine.

Mosquitoes That Carry West Nile Virus Found In Gooding County,
Officials Investigate Possible Human Case

GOODING COUNTY - South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) officials and the Twin Falls County Pest Abatement District (TFCPAD) confirm traps, just south of Hagerman, collected several mosquitoes last week that are known to carry the West Nile virus and it is likely virus-positive mosquitoes are in surrounding areas. Health Officials are also investigating a possible human case of West Nile virus, if confirmed this would be the first human case in the area this year. The patient has not yet required hospitalization.

"Our surveillance of mosquitoes helps provide an early warning of West Nile virus in the area and serves as a reminder to people to eliminate mosquito habitat where possible and avoid the insect when they are most active at dusk and dawn," said Kirk Tubbs, Twin Falls County Pest Abatement District Manager.

Public Health officials remind residents to protect themselves and their families from mosquito bites by:
  • Using insect repellent with an EPA-registered active ingredient like DEET, especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes carrying the virus are most active.
  • Wearing loose-fitting clothes with long sleeves and pants.
  • Installing screens on all windows and doors.
  • Checking for, and draining, any standing water around your home every three to six days- including clogged rain gutters, pools, bird baths and other outside water features.
"Although most people experience little or no symptoms when infected with West Nile virus it can, in some cases, lead to very serious illness- including death," said Logan Hudson, Public Health Nurse Program Manager. "Finding West Nile positive mosquitoes is a good reminder to protect ourselves against mosquito bites."

Typical symptoms of the virus include fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, and rash. People over 50 years old, with serious medical conditions, are at greater risk for serious illness from the virus. More severe infections may involve the central nervous system.
