  • Minjung Kim, PhD

    New Research Grant Announcement

    Minjung Shim, PhD, BC-DMT, and collaborators – Adam Gonzalez, PhD (Stony Brook University), Joke Bradt, PhD (CNHP, Creative Arts Therapies), Sherry Goodill, PhD (CNHP, Creative Arts Therapies), Stella Volpe, PhD (CNHP, Nutrition Sciences), Sarah Wenger (CNHP, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences) and Fengqing Zhang, PhD (CoAS, Psychology) were recently awarded $717,750 from National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health for a feasibility research study of dance/movement therapy for chronic pain management.

    Shim, an assistant research professor in the Department of Creative Arts Therapies, is the Primary Investigator on a study, titled “Mindfulness-based Dance/Movement Therapy (M-DMT) for Chronic Low Back Pain.” The purpose of this three-year study is to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability and credibility of a M-DMT protocol developed by Shim; to assess and improve methodological procedures for conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) test of M-DMT; and to demonstrate proof of principle by gathering information about the process of change between M-DMT and a control condition.

    This is the first study to address the potential of M-DMT as a creative, non-opioid intervention for chronic back pain. Therefore, the findings of this study will provide important methodological and protocol data and substantive pilot data necessary for the next phase of this line of research, namely a fully powered RCT to evaluate efficacy and treatment mechanisms of action. Data obtained as part of this study will be instrumental for informing the systematic evaluation of M-DMT for chronic back pain care.

  • Nutrition Education Making a Difference

    At a recent Women’s Career Day at McCall Elementary School, Drexel’s Pennsylvania Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (PA SNAP-Ed)/EAT RIGHT PHILLY nutrition educator, Alexis Sangalang-Pepper, found out that her nutrition lessons are making a difference.

    Many students’ mothers attended the event and were excited to meet the nutrition educator who is teaching their children. One mother shared, “My daughter came home and all of a sudden wanted raw broccoli for a straight week! I purchased it and now we have it as a snack on a regular basis.” Another mom noted that her son was teaching her all about jicama. A third mom commented that her daughter would never try a smoothie; but, after having a mango smoothie in the lessons with Ms. Alexis, her daughter discovered that she likes them.

    Working in the schools, Drexel’s EAT RIGHT PHILLY Nutrition Educators do not often get the opportunity to speak with parents. It was especially rewarding to hear from the parents that their children are benefiting from the education and food tastings that are provided.

    Scholarship Awarded for Work in LGBTQ Health

    Cameron McConkey, research operations coordinator for the Center for Family Intervention Science and MPH student at the Dornsife School of Public Health, was recently awarded Philadelphia's Jonathan Lax Scholarship for Gay Men.

    Cameron serves on CNHP's Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and has brought a number of programs and conversations to our CNHP community about LGBTQ health education and inclusion.

    The Jonathan Lax Scholarship Fund for Gay Men was established in 1994 by the late entrepreneur and inventor Jonathan R. Lax for the purpose of encouraging gay men to obtain additional education; to aspire to positions in which they contribute to society; to be out about their sexual orientation; and to act as role models for other gay men with similar potential. Tuition scholarships are awarded in amounts of $5,000 and $10,000 to gay men who live in the five-county Philadelphia region (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties) and Camden County, who are matriculated in a degree program at an accredited college, graduate, or professional school anywhere, or to men attending such schools within the Philadelphia region.

    Behavioral Health Counseling Program

    Last Saturday started Accepted Students Days where health professions hopefuls heard presentation from faculty, staff and students about what being a Dragon is all about.

    Chalice Jenkins, PhD, an assistant clinical professor, reported what a pleasure to present the Behavioral Health Counseling program to our accepted students on Saturday!

    Drexel University's Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Health Counseling is innovative and cutting-edge. Our program not only focuses on theory and research, but students learn the applied skills necessary to make a difference at the bachelor's degree level. Students will receive advanced education and practice that is traditionally only offered at the master's degree level. Students have the opportunity to practice their counseling skills in our simulation and practice lab and in community-based settings. Students can specialize in psychiatric rehabilitation, addictions and children and families. #newdragons

    Representation Beyond the Binary

    March 31 was International Transgender Day of Visibility. One powerful way to be an ally and educator is to include representative images in your classroom environments. These images openly acknowledge the existence of transgender and gender diverse people in our everyday lives and healthcare interactions, as well as challenge heteronormative assumptions and biases.

    The Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion would like to share a new resource of stock photos of gender diversity, which includes a number of images related to encounters with healthcare professionals. The Gender Spectrum Collection is a stock photo library featuring images of trans and non-binary models that go beyond the clichés. This collection aims to help media better represent members of these communities as people not necessarily defined by their gender identities—people with careers, relationships, talents, passions, and home lives.

  • Email Signature Guidelines

    Last year, the University introduced a new preferred name policy, which allows faculty, professional staff and students to designate their preferred first name, gender identity, and pronouns via Banner. In accordance with this policy — and to better support the Drexel community — the Office of University Communications has updated its email signature guidelines to include approved templates for the use of preferred pronouns, alumni class years and plain text social media links to institutional accounts.

    The addition of preferred pronouns to our email signatures supports the Shared Value of Diversity as articulated in Drexel’s Strategic Plan: “Create and support a diverse university in all of its manifestations both because diversity has instrumental value — it makes Drexel's students, faculty, and University community more competitive globally — and because diversity has inherent value — it fosters understanding, respect, and opportunity — thereby forging a better university for all.”

    • What are the current and aspirational values that CNHP’s strategic plan should be grounded in?
    • What trends or emerging challenges and opportunities in healthcare and our professions does CNHP need to respond to most urgently in order to succeed in the near future?

  • Health Industry Non-profits Wanted

    The Lindy Center for Civic Engagement is seeking health industry non-profits to become placement sites for the Drexel Community Scholars Program.

    Drexel Community Scholars (DCS) is a student leadership program in which students provide 5-15 hours per week of either direct service or capacity building to a non-profit organization. Positions range in scope but may include duties such as tutoring elementary school youth, serving meals to homeless individuals or providing administrative support. In addition to their work at their placement sites, DCS engage in leadership development and team-building activities.

    Of our 85 current placement sites, only a few of them are directly related to the health industry. Knowing how many students are seeking a volunteer or work study position, we'd welcome introductions!
