We are excited about this year's Kansas School Nurse Conference which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Wichita. Conference sessions will focus on our theme "School Nursing: Refocusing our Vision for the Future."

This year, the conference celebrates its 30th anniversary, traditionally marked by the pearl. Several celebratory and honorary observances are planned, and you'll be able to share your own school nursing "pearls of wisdom." We will have several special keynote speakers and more than 26 unique sessions for you to attend, with a strong focus on Kansas' new vision screening guidelines. Several sessions will be repeated throughout the conference so there is wider opportunity for attendance.

This course covers the essential topics pertaining to composites engineering and the certification process. Its contents provide students with an awareness of the composites engineering process framework through course materials and practical applications through online discussions. Topics include engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, and certification of composite materials associated with civil aircraft structures. The course content is in accordance with FAA AC 20-107B (Composite Aircraft Structure). 

This course was developed through the collaboration of Wichita State University, industry subject matter experts, and the Federal Aviation Administration. The course is taught online, includes all teaching materials, and features real-world discussions facilitated by those with subject matter expertise and FAA representatives. Depending on prior knowledge and experience, students will spend approximately ten hours per week reviewing materials, participating in online discussions and testing their knowledge.

After finishing a 1-week period of self-study of fundamental composites and successfully completing an examination, students proceed to more advanced topics through an on-line, interactive learning experience via Blackboard. Teaching methodology includes online discussions facilitated by subject matter experts, relevant documentation, and audio/visual aids. A hands-on lab will be offered separately at future times.

The 6th Interstellar Symposium and Advanced Interstellar Propulsion Workshop, presented by the Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop (TVIW) in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and hosted jointly by Wichita State University and Ad Astra Kansas Foundation, will be held in Wichita, KS on November 10-15, 2019. It will include a special two and a half day NASA Propulsion Workshop focusing on Beamed Energy Propulsion and Highly Energetic Nuclear Processes for Propulsion (Fusion and Antimatter). This will be a new addition to our regular symposia, a workshop focusing on a specific aspect of interstellar exploration. It will be a part of the overall symposium and will not require special registration. We hope and expect to learn much about the current state of the art and future directions for many varied propulsion methods that may one day take us to the stars!

Wichita State University is offering two one-day Blood Flow Restriction (pBFR) workshops where clinicians can learn how to incorporate BFR without the expensive gear.

The coursework explores the growing body of research around skeletal muscle as an endocrine organ that releases metabolites that affect other organs. Included in this study are the metabolic effects of various exercise approaches including practical Blood Flow Restriction (pBFR) as this approach can serve as an integral complement to a comprehensive strengthening program across the age and disability spectrum.
