Statistics and SPSS for Non-statisticians

Monideepa Becerra, DrPH, MPH, CHES and Benjamin Becerra, DrPH, MPH, MBA (California State University, San Bernardino)

Data driven policy and practice are critical and often require foundations in analytic skills. This pre-conference workshop will train participants how to use SPSS for health data analysis, including descriptive and bivariate statistics. The workshop is created for non-statisticians and thus applicable to everyday use of evaluating student health data, and creating graphics and tables to demonstrate trends in health outcomes.

Dismantling White Supremacy and Healing Racial Trauma: Ending Racist Practices in College Health

Kelly Gorman, MSc and Gina Orlando, MPH, CHES (Columbia University)

While many college health professionals care deeply about anti-racism and anti-oppression work, it often is not central to their day-to-day work. This pre-conference workshop will help college health professionals understand racism, how they may perpetuate it in their own programming, and how they can begin to dismantle it with strategies that center anti-oppression values.

Transgender Student Health: Providing Holistic Care and Policies

Transgender students experience significant social and health inequities with resultant barriers to affordable, quality, gender affirming medical and mental health care.  This session will highlight these disparities and explore health care models which provide integrated, interdisciplinary, and accessible gender-affirming care. Attendees will learn avenues to advocate for their gender diverse students. This program will demonstrate the necessity to create an inclusive campus climate with access to gender affirming health care and policies for transgender students.

Sports Medicine Special Testing

Wendy Sheppard, MS, LAT, ATC, Allison Rose, MS, (University of Richmond/Recreation); Rishi Bala, MD (Bon Secours)

This session will review special testing techniques for a variety of sports medicine injuries (Lachmans, McMurrays, Thompson tests, etc). We will discuss the reliability of each test and give participants an opportunity to try and practice these skills. 

Dismantling the Inherent Privilege of Self-care

Nishelli Ahmed, MPH (University of Connecticut); Raphael Coleman, PhD, MPH (Columbia University); Ashleigh Hala, MSW, LCSW (Wake Forest University)

The current understanding and practice of mainstream self-care is rooted in privilege, capitalism, and colonialism. Self-care is often presented as an individualistic approach to supporting one person's mental health. Self-care alone fails to acknowledge a) the overlapping systems of oppression that affect well-being and b) the role of community care. Collectively, we will dismantle self-care through exploration of anti-oppression frameworks: Trauma Stewardship, Healing Justice, and Community Cultural Wealth.

Considerations for Telehealth in a College Health Setting

Marian Trattner, BSW, MWS (Wake Forest University); Eileen Hineline, RN-BC (Barry University); Esmeralda Lopez (Oregon State University); David Edwards, MD (Texas Tech University)

During the peak of the pandemic most universities implemented telehealth services to continue to serve our students. Now that most campuses have fully re-opened, we are grappling with if or how to continue to offer telehealth and remote services. In this session we will discuss the benefits and unintended impacts of telehealth on administrative processes, primary care, health promotion, and pharmacies.

Fostering Wellbeing Using Resilience-Based Strategies

Sislena Ledbetter, PhD (Western Washinton University); Samantha Conway, AM, LCSW (Northwestern University)

COVID-19, racial reckoning, and the mental health pandemic have tested the resilience of college campuses. However, the mission of educating bright minds must prevail. In this session, presenters will share the successes and challenges of resilience-based programs across four college campuses, including three public universities and one private university, with extended time focused on Northwestern University’s “ResilientNU” cohort- based program’s curriculum, learning outcomes, and program assessment.

Jessica Higgs, MD (Bradley University); Sarah Van Orman (University of Southern California); Shawnte Elbert, MA, EdD, MCHES (The Ohio State University); Kevin Readdean, MSEd, LMHC (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)

The transition from direct care provider to health service director brings new responsibilities and challenges.  Many health service directors step into their role without formal management training.  This program is designed to provide both new directors as well as providers interested in leadership roles with exposure to key foundational health care management skills.  Areas of focus will include Communication and Leadership, Equity, Quality and Risk Management, and Finance.
