TODAY! "Time-Out" Session- Aromatherapy for Emotional Health
First Published 10/17/2018

***Families, caregivers, patients, staff and students are welcome to attend these sessions***

October 17th Session- 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A

Presented by: Charlene Nieten, BSN, CCRN

Topic: "Aromatherapy for Emotional Health"

Overview: There are many factors that can trigger depression, anxiety or any other emotional imbalance. These factors can be related to food allergies, medications, poor diet, illness, and many other environmental influences, along with emotional traumas, and painful childhood memories. Essential oils are a terrific way to address some of these factors and enjoy enhanced emotional health. Join us to learn more on how essential oils and aromatherapy can help improve and balance your emotional health.

Please encourage caregivers, family members and patients to attend! 

"Time-Out “is a weekly educational/support session for caregivers and family members of UTMB patients, to support them in their adjustment and maintenance of their caregiving role.  These sessions will not be tied to a specific diagnosis- all caregivers and family members are welcome.  The hope is that these sessions will provide a chance for them to have “time out” to relieve some stress, have a little fun, build on care giving skills, decrease burnout and affirm that they are not alone in the role of caregiving.

These sessions are facilitated by UTMB students and staff and will occur every Wednesday at 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A.  Sessions will last around 30 minutes and will address topics that falls into the following categories: Relaxation, Self-Care, Discharge Planning and Medical Topics.

If you have questions or are interested in facilitating a session, please contact Savannah Parks at sjparks@utmb.edu or 409-266-7542.

Donny Daughenbaugh USMC (ret)
 
While on a 2004 deployment with the 24 Marine Expeditionary Unit to Mahmoudiya, a city south of Baghdad, Cpl Daughenbaugh was, along with tens of thousands of US Troops, trying to win the hearts of minds of the Iraqi people. On the night of October 12th his unit was conducting a vehicle search when he had an interaction with an irate driver that would change his life. The outcome of that night was a critical wound and a lengthy road to recovery. With the ups and down that come with being wounded in action, Donny’s injury has shown him the miracle that is his recovery. This is happening while also showing that unfortunately, some things have gotten worse and caused additional problems.
 
Seeing this event in a positive light, Donny now proudly represents the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes as the Vice President of Field Operations and as a national spokesperson. Through the Coalition, he’s able to help other combat wounded veteran family’s as they transition from their injuries into a successful and high quality of life. His involvement with the Coalition has not only helped Donny in his own recovery, but as an active representative of the organization, he’s able to inspire others through his story of resilience and the positive effects a family can have on one’s recovery. Donny holds a Bachelor of Business Management degree from Western Governors University. He lives in League City TX with his beautiful wife Sarah and their 3 children Gabby, Kollin and Everleigh. + 2 dogs, Paige & Cooper.

Participants who attend the 1 ½-day conference will receive a certificate of participation. The conference is open to all but aims to help diverse trainees (medical students, residents, fellows and doctoral students) who are underrepresented in medicine and science (in particular women, underrepresented minorities and LGBTQ) to:
 
     •  Explore academic medicine careers to fit with personal and professional interests.
     •  Navigate the array of academic medicine career paths and opportunities.
     •  Develop and enhance their academic medicine portfolio
     •  Expand their network among academic medicine colleagues and role models.
 
We hope you find the seminar educational and helpful in preparing you in your potential pursuit of careers in academia and/or research.
