Biloxi General Sessions Will "Up The Ante"
Biloxi meeting general sessions will "Up The Ante" and give you valuable information to help you connect, collaborate, and communicate in the workplace.
Connect with your doctors, clinical faculty, and researchers by being aware of an ongoing study that will enhance our overall knowledge of cardiovascular health. At the opening general session on Saturday morning, our speaker will be Herman A. Taylor, Jr. MD, FACC, Professor at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Dr. Taylor is the Director and Principle Investigator of the Jackson Heart Study, a prospective epidemiological investigation of cardiovascular disease among African-Americans from the Jackson, Mississippi metropolitan area. The initial phase of the study, which hopes to include up to 6500 African-American men and women between the ages of 35 and 84 years, began in 2000. The study hopes to provide the kind of information for this population that the Framingham Heart Study in Massachusetts established for its participants.
Collaborate with your administrators and professional colleagues by advancing your networking skills. Networking is something we’re expected to know how to do. General session II speaker, Lynne Waymon, will teach us the hidden rules and tools for making contacts count. Be more strategic about finding valuable resources, steering small talk toward topics that matter, getting visible in your profession or community, making the most of your memberships, and attracting career and business opportunities. So, get up Sunday morning to hear Lynne Waymon’s interactive talk "Make Your Contacts Count: Networking Know-How". President of Waymon and Associates since 1983, Waymon is the author of books and tapes that help professionals grow their businesses and careers. She has received awards for her speaking finesse. Several copies of Waymon’s book, Make Your Contacts Count, will be given at the session as door prizes.
Communicate with your faculty, administrators, and user community about publishing issues that impact us daily. Southern Chapter is fortunate to have the editor of the Journal of the Medical Library Association, T. Scott Plutchak, as a member of our chapter. He is a speaker in demand, traveling to speaking engagements in Belfast and Maine prior to addressing the Chapter. Scott’s general session III topic, "Dealers’ Shuffle: Keeping Up With Trends In Scholarly Publishing", alludes to the fact that publishing is a moving target. As Associate Professor and Director of the Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Scott held a Scholarly Publishing Seminar for his library faculty during the summer. He also organized the last CONBLS retreat featuring a publishing theme and presentations by two prominent association journal representatives. Scott’s editorials and other writings are always worth reading. Needless to say, he knows the topic well and we will benefit from his knowledge.
