TLI partnership with Mayo Clinic to develop a Limb Loss and Preservation Registry (Registry) for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) generates support, interest and palpable enthusiasm during Amputee Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in San Antonio, Texas
Digging Deep: Attacking the Opioid Epidemic at its Roots
Replicating an innovative model for multi-sector community-based collaborative action across America
This will be the first in a series of blogs on TLI’s Community Collaborative™.
People, families and communities are in deep pain as the death toll from substance abuse continues to climb. For the first time in centuries, life expectancy decreased in the United States. The roots of these issues are found where hope for a better future is dying, where isolation and loneliness are common, and where people segregate themselves from the rich cultures and traditions of those they label as “other”.
GREAT & GREATER EXPECTATIONS
Determining the cause of chronic diseases – such as Lyme disease, Bartonellosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, neuropsychiatric diseases and Crohn’s disease -- is now within reach.
It’s startling to consider that if only five percent of chronic diseases are attributable to infectious agents, in The United States alone, approximately 4.5 million of the 90 million people living with chronic disease might receive benefit from new plans and programs.
Advancing a Legacy of Improving Health and Quality of Life
TLI is grounded in a commitment to share its expertise in transformative change that impacts health, education and economic empowerment.
So, when the Mayo Clinic awarded TLI a subcontract to assist in the development of a Limb Loss and Preservation Registry for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the entire TLI organization was extremely gratified to participate in a project that could lead to prevention of limb loss, improve amputation surgeries, refine rehabilitation approaches and guide the development of devices for people with limb loss.
CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACADEMIA SERVING BLACKS & MINORITIES:
Fostering Risk Management and Cybersecurity Training Programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions
African-Americans make up only three percent of the information security analysts in the U.S in a field where jobs are expected to grow 18 percent through 2024.
As with any business or organization, colleges and universities face significant risk to operations when financial losses occur. Because Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) often have limited resources, the impact of unforeseen problems -- declining enrollment, rising operational costs, financial deficits, changes to state or federal funding -- can be crippling.
