  • Naperville Teen Wins Soroptimist Award Mar 16, 2015 5:44 PM
    Trisha Prabhu of Naperville is the winner of this year’s Violet Richardson Award. Soroptimist International of Suburban Chicago honors Trisha for her project, Rethink, which is an anti- cyberbullying app that will benefit others globally. Trisha is a student at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville. In the fall of 2013, after learning about an 11 year old girl’s suicide because of cyberbullying, she set out to find a way to stop this from ever happening again. She wanted to define and design a long-term solution to stop cyberbullying. Her research and hard work led her to the product Rethink, which won a spot as a Google Science Fair 2014 Global Finalist. Rethink gives someone trying to post an offensive message on social media a second chance to reconsider their decision. Her “Rethink” has had a lot of media coverage both locally and globally. She spoke about “Rethink” at TEDxTeen in London (www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkzwHuf6C2U). She currently holds a Provisional Patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for her Rethink idea. She has always been interested in the inner workings of the brain. Prior to her Rethink project, Trisha won an award for her research on the cognitive distraction that causes distracted driving. As an advocate of STEM in education (importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics for future United States global competitiveness and future economic prosperity), she believes that technology is the future. Aside from her love of science and technology, Trisha is a published author of four books. She was also named Chicago’s Financial Literacy Ambassador by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Soroptimists strive to improve the lives of women and girls in the local area and globally through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Soroptimist International of Suburban Chicago offers several Grants/Awards for women and girls. The award celebration for Trisha and other Suburban Chicago winners will be held in May.

  • The Birches sponsors Alzheimer’s research education event Mar 10, 2015 5:44 PM
    On March 19, The Birches Assisted Living in Clarendon Hills is partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association and The Community House to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s research. As part of a series of Alzheimer’s Association education events titled “Alzheimer’s Research: Get Informed, Get Involved,” The Birches and The Community House will host a presentation by keynote speaker Kumar Bharat Rajan, Ph.D. from Rush University Medical Center. The presentation will take place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Community House, 415 W. Eighth Street, Hinsdale. Dr. Kumar Bharat Rajan will discuss current trends, efforts and directions in dementia research and will provide information about the benefits of participation in research and local studies. He will also be awarded a check for $49,957.00 through the New Investigator Research Grant program to fund the first year of his research titled “Role of Activities on Genetic Risk of Neurodegeneration by Race/Ethnicity.” At the end of the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to enroll in the Alzheimer’s Association’s TrialMatch program. The TrialMatch program is a free service provided by the Alzheimer’s Association that matches individuals with Alzheimer’s, caregivers, healthy volunteers and physicians with current Alzheimer’s studies. The Alzheimer’s Association’s TrialMatch database contains more than 225 clinical studies that are being performed at 700 trial sites throughout the country. Clinical trials play an important role in finding new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have already made great strides in developing treatments for Alzheimer’s. Drugs have been developed that can temporarily improve the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, but more research is necessary to develop treatments that slow or stop the progression of the disease. For clinical trials to be productive, volunteers are needed from a variety of backgrounds. Those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s play an important role in research, but researchers also need volunteers without Alzheimer’s. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, recruiting and retaining trial participants is the greatest barrier to finding new Alzheimer’s treatments besides funding. “I think raising awareness about the need for volunteers in clinical trials is important,” said Birches’ Director of Encore and Memory Care Services Jackie Raschke. “A lot of people would love to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s but don’t know what they can do. TrialMatch gives people a concrete way to contribute.” This event is free and open to the public. To register, call 847-933-2413 or register online at www.alz.org/illinois. The Birches Assisted Living in Clarendon Hills is a premier retirement community dedicated to providing professional services that support its residents’ physical, social, intellectual and spiritual growth. The Birches offers a full calendar of purposeful programs and activities designed to promote a healthy aging lifestyle and a strong sense of community.

  • Benedictine, John Marshall offer dual M.B.A./J.D. degree program. Partnership gives students competitive edge in business and law Mar 10, 2015 5:50 PM
    Individuals seeking a graduate degree to enhance their careers should consider Benedictine University’s new dual Master of Business (M.B.A.) and Juris Doctorate (J.D.) program with John Marshall Law School. After meeting admissions requirements at both schools, students can take classes at John Marshall toward a law degree and at Benedictine toward earning an M.B.A. “This program is fully integrated for students seeking degrees in both law and business to gain an advantage in today’s global business environment,” said Rick Holman, assistant professor and chair of Benedictine’s Graduate Business Administration program.”Benedictine is providing an opportunity for students who have an interest in the area of management whereby the combination of a law degree and an M.B.A. degree will give them an advantage in the corporate world.” As students continue to grow in business through market uncertainty, global competition, ethical challenges and constant change, the M.B.A. and J.D. dual degree will help Benedictine students develop quantitative, qualitative and legal competence as professionals who can assess business risks and strategic alternatives, Holman said. Students enrolling in the dual degree program can attend classes part-time or full-time. However, full-time law students must attend the first year of law school exclusively at John Marshall. After successfully completing the first year of law school, the student can combine law courses with Benedictine M.B.A. courses for the remainder of the program. Part-time students can attend classes simultaneously at Benedictine and John Marshall. Benedictine University, an accredited, nonprofit private Catholic institution which has been providing graduate business programs to adults for more than 50 years, believes that a quality education and an advanced degree should be both accessible and affordable. Though some other higher education institutions also offer dual M.B.A. and J.D. degree programs, Benedictine’s emphasis on values-based education is a distinct advantage as global corporations place greater emphasis on the correlation between ethical behavior and more sustainable and profitable results. Students within Benedictine’s M.B.A. program can customize their program to fit their needs. Courses are interactive, taught by faculty and instructors who are practicing professionals and provide real-world business planning and strategic management experiences. Both Benedictine and John Marshall accept applications on a rolling admissions basis throughout the year. Applicants seeking information about Benedictine’s M.B.A. program can visit ben.edu/mba or contact Admissions at admissions@ben.edu or (630) 829-6300.
