Dear Friend of SCNM,

 

The SCNM Now! is now available online for your reading pleasure. The digital version is available here.

 

I'm particularly pleased with this latest issue. It contains some very interesting and informative articles on patient care, learning/teaching innovations, the origins of the Naturopathic Medical Student Association, the Hamilton Elementary School Clinic, a remembrance of Daniel Leek, an acknowledgement of individual and corporate donors to our new Medical Center, pictures of SCNM Residents, an alumni profile of Dr. Dan Rubin (a 2011 Phoenix Magazine Top Doc), among others.


Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences accomplished a tremendous amount in 2010 and we are off to a great start in 2011. The SCNM Now! chronicles some of these achievements and conveys a sense of the College's commitment to providing the best education to our students, outstanding healthcare to our patients, and a dynamic caring environment to all who work and study here.
      
Thank you to all the staff, faculty and students who helped bring this latest issue to press.

Don't forget that your final chance to be included in the brick walkway at our academic building ends March 31st.  Please consider donating $100 to receive a brick on the walkway today!  Click here to purchase a brick.


Peace,
Paul

6.  Marginalia:  Travelogue to Reelfoot Lake, March 25-26, 2011, by the Dr. Eisen’s Limnology and Dr. Joy Layton’s Entomology classes (photographs courtesy of Carey Bowen).  

During the weekend of March 25-26, 2011, Dr. Eisen’s Limnology and Dr. Joy Layton’s Entomology classes went on a field trip to Reelfoot Lake.  Part of that field trip involved canoeing through the cypress swamp.  The good news about this field trip is:

1)      No one drowned;

2)      No one got electrocuted as the electrical storm passed overhead;

3)      No one got bitten by snakes.  (Actually, it was too cold for the snakes to be out.

Here are some pictures:

 

Ms. Kim Crews, Interim Director of the University of Tennessee – Martin (in camo jacket) giving initial instructions of how to use a canoe and where we were going within the swamp.  Notice how attentive and dry everyone is:

We’re on our way!  (Notice how dry everyone still is):

About an hour and 40 minutes into this trip is when a cold front came through, and we started to hear thunder and see the clouds suddenly flash.

RETREAT!! (It took about 20 minutes to get back to the cars).  Those “specks” on the photo are not bits of dirt – they’re raindrops:

ReelfootSp2011Pic27

 

 

Now that we’ve loaded the canoes back on the trailer, notice how wet everybody is.  (It builds character, you know.  BTW, that’s Joe Alfonso asking the existential question, “WTF was I thinking when I signed up for this class?”):
