Jiying Ling, PhD, MS, RN, is an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University College of Nursing.  She received a Master's in Science in biostatistics and a Ph.D. in nursing from the University of Louisville in 2013.  She started her postdoctoral fellowship and career at the Michigan State University College of Nursing in 2014.  Her primary research focuses on pediatric health behavior promotion and childhood obesity prevention.  She recently developed and tested an innovative inter-generational intervention to help preschoolers establish lifelong healthy habits by actively involving their parents with a companion Facebook program. Dr. Ling has published 41 manuscripts, 19 as first author, and has received grant funding from multiple sources.  She is an Associate Editor for the journal BMC Public Health.  She has received many prestigious awards, including the Michigan State University Faculty Enrichment and Practice Awards, American Nurses Association Michigan Research Presentation Winner Award, Harriet H. Werley New Investigator Award, Health Promotion Behaviors Across the Lifespan Research Interest Group's New Investigator Award, and Pediatric Research Interest Group's Early Investigator Award from Midwestern Nursing Research Society.

Dr. Ling's presentation will describe the process used to develop an inter-generational lifestyle intervention for low-income Head Start children; discuss the use of Facebook in a pilot intervention study; describe the application of dose response analysis; and discuss the steps taken that led to submission of an R21 proposal on this topic and the current status of the proposal.

Presenter 

Presenter:  Les W. Hollie, Assistant Inspector General for Investigations

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the largest grant-awarding department in the federal government.  The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for HHS is statutorily charged with providing independent oversight of all HHS programs, including those funded through grants operations at the NIH.  The OIG accomplishes its oversight mission through audits, evaluations, inspections, and investigations.  The HHS OIG has authority to investigate NIH grantees to ensure the appropriate use of federal funds.

This session will provide an introduction to OIG grant fraud investigations.  By using case examples, we will explain the circumstances under which fraud, waste and abuse can occur, and describe what can happen when grantees do not implement proper internal controls.  The HHS programs are put at greater risk from fraud, waste and abuse if grantees are unaware of the circumstances that lead to enforcement.

By sharing cautionary case examples in this session, our aims are:

to increase grantee awareness about the effect of fraud, waste and abuse on NIH grants;

to share examples of fraud indicators from known NIH grant cases; and

to increase grantee capacity to prevent fraud from negatively affecting grants awarded by the NIH 

This is part of the 2019 RCR Training Series:  This free session will provide 1 hour of face-to-face RCR instruction as required by NIH (8 hours minimum)

Light refreshments will be served.

This is a weekly research seminar series by the James Graham Brown Cancer Center.  This seminar will be presented by John P. Wise, Sr., Ph.D., Professor of the Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology. The Wise Laboratory has made important advances in understanding DNA damage, DNA repair, mitosis, and centrosome biology; discovering how chemical impacts on these processes lead to chromosome instability and carcinogenesis.  The Wise Lab then compares these outcomes in humans, to similar endpoints in whales, alligators and sea turtles to discover novel adaptations and to better conserve wildlife. Dr. Wise's laboratory on the UofL School of Medicine location works closely with ship-and-shore based work at field sites in Vieques, Puerto Rico; Cape Canaveral, Florida; and the Gulfs of Maine, Mexico and California.

Joshua Poe

Presenter:  Joshua Poe, M.A.

Joshua Poe is a nationally recognized city planner, data journalist, community organizer, and movement geographer.  He started in grassroots organizing around housing, labor, and economic justice.  Mr. Poe has a B.A. in Political Science from Berea College, and an M.A. in Urban Planning from the University of Louisville.  In 2017, he authored and published the interactive storymap, Redlining Louisville: The History of Race, Class, and Housing in Louisville, KY, which received recognition from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.  He is a pioneer in documenting and exposing intentional city planning as a weaponized tool for denying Black people land ownership and access to generational wealth.  His work on the history of city planning, inclusive design and equitable development makes him a nationally featured speaker.  Mr. Poe is currently working on developing equitable development strategies, organizing around anti-gentrification efforts, creating new funding models, and addressing root systems of power to create sustainable social change.

This presentation will explore the legacy of structural discrimination through federal housing policies and the far-reaching impact they have had on social determinants of health and economics.  The presentation will explore how early 20th century housing policies and the profession of city planning were intentionally weaponized to isolate Black communities, create a permanent caste system, and prevent access to jobs, housing, capital, and the accumulation of generational wealth.  The presentation will also discuss how the legacy of redlining is furthering current gentrification patterns, along with strategies for policy development to create equitable urban development and justice-based philanthropy.  (Lunch will be served.)

OBJECTIVES:

  • Define how urban policy and the profession of city planning were weaponized in the early 20th century against Black communities to prevent wealth attainment through these four policy areas: zoning; the Federal Housing Administration; urban renewal; and the construction of interstate highways.
  • Recognize how segregation and concentrated poverty are the results of structural systems of oppression rather than individual choices.
  • Describe the intentionality behind discriminatory housing policies and the relationship between racism, capitalism, and real estate.
  • Illustrate and contextualize redlining in present-day urban redevelopment and gentrification strategies.
  • Outline the history and implications of the racial wealth gap.
  • Compare and contrast the differences between outcomes, root causes, and systems of oppressions and the need for policy changes that address structural issues.

 Keynote Speaker:  Cheryl Lyn Walker, Ph.D.

Keynote Address:  Environmental Epigenomics: What the Epigenome can Teach us about Environmental Causes of Disease"

The epigenome is often described as the "software" that operates our genome.  This epigenome software is installed very early in life at key developmental windows in utero and during early childhood and adolescence.  Once installed, it is carried with us into adulthood and acts as a determinant of health and disease across the life-course.  Importantly, and in contrast to the DNA of our genome, the epigenome is quite plastic, and able to sense and change in response to the environment.  Consequently, adverse environmental exposures experienced early in life can reprogram the epigenome and increase susceptibility to many diseases in adulthood.  Dr. Walker's work on environmental epigenomics is providing new insights into how the environment molds the epigenome, and how developmental reprogramming induced by early life exposures can change normal physiology to increase risk for diseases such as obesity and cancer.
