Michigan State University Summer 2016 College of Osteopathic Medicine Volume 44 No. 2 LIVING HER LEGACY at Cristo Rey COMMUNIQU COMMUNIQU Volume 44 Issue 2 Copyright 2016 Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine Published three times per year by the Office of Public Relations East Fee Hall 965 Fee Road Room A306 East Lansing MI 48824 To contact Public Relations 517-353-0616 MANAGING EDITOR Laura Probyn EDITOR Pat Grauer DESIGN Ann Cook PHOTOGRAPHY Ann Cook Jim Hastings Eddie Torres Paula Walker CONTRIBUTING WRITERS Gene Kielhorn D.O. Kristopher Thomas Nicholoff Meg Spenchian EDITORIAL ASSISTANCE Beth Courey Katie Donnelly Sandy Kilbourn Giving thanks Its not just for November We typically focus our attention and talk about gratitude in late November but with several major changes underway within the college now seemed to me like a good time to express my thanks in a number of arenas. This time of the year its easy for me to see the enormous undertaking of our Student Services team. I recently welcomed the Class of 2020 during convocation and shook hands with members of the Class of 2016 during graduation ceremonies. The admissions unit the registrars ofce the academic counselors the personal counselors and the student schedulers perform amazing feats to prepare 300 students to move into residency while preparing to welcome another 300. In the span of time between the beginnings of these classes respective medical school careers weve begun navigating the transition to a unied graduate medical education system expanded our technological capabilities to permit computer- based testing and electronic admissions and instituted a new interview process. None of these advancements would have taken place without diligent attention from faculty and staff associated with the Statewide Campus System Academic Programs and the Health Information Team. Its also appropriate for me to express my thanks to the numerous individuals and organizations who support the college as donors. This issue of Communiqu includes the honor roll of those who have helped us create or continue endowments offer programs enable research and build on our strengths for the future. At the individual level I would like to express my gratitude to two women who have shared their enormous talents with the college. My ofces business analyst Colleen Kniffen and our longtime PR pro Pat Grauer are taking well-earned retirements after making considerable contributions to MSU and MSUCOM. You can read more about both of their careers with us on page 13. Please dont read this as a comprehensive thank-you list or that a lack of mention equals a lack of appreciation. There are many other faculty and staff members students alumni colleagues and others who cross my path and whose efforts are greatly appreciated but because Im limited to one page I cant personally thank in this space. Ill do what I can to recognize them in other places at other times. Thanks for your time in reading this Dean William Strampel SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 1 Cristo Rey patient Jessica Borrera learns to use a stethoscope with help from Aimee Leisure-Martins. LEISURE-MARTINS FACING A WORLD OF CHANGE HIGHLIGHTS By Meg Spenchian Growing up a Yooper in Marquette Michigan surrounded by the outdoors animals and Lake Superior Aimee Leisure-Martins knew two things she wanted to become a doctor and she wanted to practice in the U.P. But rst she wanted to see the world. A medical mission trip to Honduras that my mother a registered nurse took me on was pivotal in my decision-making process because I saw an overwhelming number of people in great need of medical care and it was my rst real exposure to poverty said Leisure-Martins. I then began learning about the different types of medical providers and being a doctor of osteopathy seemed to be the best t for me. MSUCOM was her top choice for medical school. Its location and the quality of the OMT courses inspired her and her interest in international health care led her to a clinical rotation in Chogoria Kenya with David MacIntosh MSUCOM 76. I knew that for me where I went to medical school would be the stepping stone to the rest of my medical journey said Leisure- Martins. A 2012 MSUCOM graduate she has always loved the medical eld but initially did not know which path would be best for her. In her new role as the staff pediatrician at the Cristo Rey Community Center in Lansing Leisure-Martins is using her passion for helping others to carry out the family health clinics mission to provide basic medical care to underserved populations. One thing that Leisure-Martins did not expect was the journey she would take with her husband Marcilio Martins-Leisure. Shortly after I was accepted to MSUCOM we found out he had a rare type of liver cancer. Together we made the decision that I would start medical school and hed continue his frequent treatment trips to Ann Arbor she said. He was instrumental in helping me grow as a person and a doctor-in-training. MSUCOM was very understanding when I had to take a leave for a year after we knew he only had a few months to live. At that point we traveled back to his homeland of Brazil where we could be with family and friends said Leisure-Martins. MSUCOM welcomed me back when I was ready and then I completed the program. After nishing a pediatric residency at Sparrow Hospital in 2015 she found out about the job opening at Cristo Rey. With the Latino culture near to her heart she was excited about the opportunity at the center. It primarily serves a Medicaid population expands primary care options for the areas most vulnerable children and adults and is currently working to grow the pediatric practice. The center has a holistic approach to caring for the community as it offers several services including a clothing closet food pantry warm meals prescription assistance nancial empowerment programs and counseling. While Leisure-Martins continues her pediatric career and works part-time shifts at the Sparrow Nursery she has extra motivation along the wayto keep the memory of her husband alive by striving to spread joy as effortlessly as he did and always looking for the best in people. Marcilio continues to be an inspiration to me to be a better physician by trying to place myself on the patient side of the interaction as well as striving to live life to the fullest every day. 2 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 FOUR MSUCOM FACULTY SHARE A BUSHEL OF GOLDEN APPLES FOR THEIR TEACHING They may teach vastly different subjects but they all care for their students and want them to learn and think critically about their lessons. Outstanding educators also have another key trait most of them have been inspired by special teachers in their pasts. MSUCOM is home to numerous classroom instructors who work hard to prepare their students for the future. To feature all of them would require many more pages than this magazine holds so for this issue we are focusing on four individuals who have been honored by recent graduating classes. Peter Gulick TEACHES DIAGNOSTICS BY GETTING UNDER THE HOOD by Pat Grauer To use an automotive analogy Peter Gulick is not a teacher who simply wants his students to know how to turn the key and hit the gas. He wants them to understand what happens under the hood so they can diagnose and troubleshoot with expertise. Its a conviction born of his decades spent caring for thousands of persons with HIVAIDS when his patients loss of immunity requires he be able to understand the vast array of diseases to which they might fall prey. An associate professor of osteopathic medical specialties hes board-certied in internal medicine infectious diseases medical oncology and HIV medicine. And hes recognized by his students year after year for his instruction. They have to know the basic principles he says repeatedly the basic concepts from the basic sciences. These underpin all clinical decision-making. How does the disease present What tests should we use How do we interpret the tests What is the diagnosis And nally what treatments should we choose For example how do antibiotics work What are their consequences side effects and pharmacology I dont want students just to memorize he said. I want them to be able to give the concepts and to understand how the tests they will order work. Gulick is the course coordinator for the Hematopoietic System offered in the second year and he includes in the course HIV infection and oncology related to primary care. He brings in basic science faculty members to work with him. He teaches the principles offers cases and then asks students to apply the principles to diagnose them. Even the exams themselves become teaching tools. My greatest satisfaction is when I see students as residents and attendings and they thank me for my teaching and say they still use it now. Thats the best reward to know Ive turned out good diagnosticians into the community he said. HIGHLIGHTS Peter Gulick stresses basic principles and concepts so students can integrate and use what they learn to be excellent diagnosticians. SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 3 Mark Gugel demonstrates an OMM technique during a class. HIGHLIGHTS by Laura Probyn Mark Gugels teaching philosophy was inspired by what he learned in the very same rooms where he now shares lessons in osteopathic manipulative medicine. A 1989 MSUCOM graduate and an associate professor Gugel has been involved in training osteopathic medical students since his residency years. It was Lon Hoover a former faculty member in the Department of Family and Community Medicine who captured Gugels attention. I remember the rst lecture he gave here. He was talking about osteopathic medicine in general and he teared up talking about the profession Gugel says. Hed gotten a number of teaching awards here for OMT when I was a student and I got to work with him one-on-one in the clinic. He tried to make things simple for students and really cared about them. As a family medicine resident Gugel taught courses on OMM and physical exams. He frequently worked with Hoover before moving into a practice in DeWitt. In 1996 as Hoover was preparing to retire he asked Gugel to return to his alma mater as an educator. I wanted to try to ll his shoesI didnt necessarily think that I couldbut I wanted to come back here and give the students the same kind of experience that he gave me Gugel notes. Whether or not hes lled Hoovers shoes Gugel seems to have connected with students whove bestowed him with the Osteopathic Faculty Award nearly a dozen times. His philosophy is simple focus on the students. It goes back to the behavior that Dr. Hoover modeled for me he notes. I think when the students see that passion and that drive and the focus on what they need to know and not playing games thats when they do their best learning. As someone whos seen MSUCOM Mark Gugel LEARNED GREAT TEACHING FROM GREAT TEACHERS as a student and a faculty member and who has lectured students for 20 years Gugel believes that the students are as driven and as purposeful as are he and his cohort though he does however see some differences. Our students are coming in especially if I compare them to myself with a lot more volunteer activities and extracurricular things that my class never did he points out. They denitely have a better sense of community and what it takes to be a physician and help the community. He also sees a difference in their learning styles. Students learn now in a different manner they arent necessarily sitting in lecture. He adds I think they need to know that what we do is a profession we need to be professional but that doesnt necessarily mean you cant enjoy what you do you cant have fun at what you do and learn at the same time. 4 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 Elizabeth Petsche ENCOURAGES STUDENTS TO EXPLORE INTERSECTION OF LAW AND ETHICS by Laura Probyn Persuading listeners to understand and support a point of view is part of most lawyers work. MSUCOM Assistant Professor Elizabeth Petsche is a lawyer in a medical school and her listeners are students who are more familiar with learning about gray matter than grey areas. She joined the college in 2010 and after spending ve years working to strengthen her teaching skills helping second-year medical students explore the law and medicine and ethics shes seeing the fruits of her labors. Not only do students approach her at events and send emails thanking her for the lessons in critical thinking and discussions of difcult topics she also received a Golden Apple teaching award in 2015 and the Class of 2016 honored her with a Distinguished Lecturer Award. Petsche teaches a three-week course on medical ethics professionalism and law. Its an 8 a.m. class with required attendance for pop quizzes that include small-group discussions something that initially challenged students who watch many lectures online. I came in with a law background where class was expected and you didnt miss it she says. When I came here the content I was teaching wasnt conducive to passive learning online. Ethical dilemmas are not passive legal questions are not passive. It was a culture change. Petsche who had not taught prior to joining the college endured harsh student reviews early on. Instead of changing what she strongly felt was a valuable educational experience she chose to improve her classroom skills. I did a teaching fellowship at the university and took part in as many teaching activities as I could. I attended MSU Faculty and Organizational Development sessions I got tips I learned techniques and I read. It appears to have been time well spent. Even after all of the pop quizzes are done I still have 95 percent attendance in the class. That means something to me. I still get emails from students who thank me for the information because they didnt just learn it and dump it she says. Ill get fourth-year students who tell me I remember what you taught me because I used it. Thank youAnd that makes me so happy. HIGHLIGHTS Petsche interacts with students in Fee Hall. SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 5 Robert Stephenson WALKS THE CUTTING EDGE TO MAXIMIZE LEARNING by Pat Grauer His quiet demeanor precise speech and scholarly mien belie the fact that Robert Stephenson associate professor of physiology is a fervent revolutionary for educational innovation. And what drives him to the cutting edge is that he values learning far more than teaching. I feed off student achievement he said. Its my main source of inspiration. Its always a challenge to see if I can improve it. And improve he does. When he began teaching physiology at MSU in 1979 he was lecturing to undergraduate and graduate students and quickly added students in osteopathic human and veterinary medicine. Now hes producing high-quality well-edited content in prerecorded modules lectures demos good graphics and lively interaction. My goal is to facilitate any-time any-place any-pace learning he said. In regard to attending live lectures the students have already voted with their feet. So how can we take this reality and HIGHLIGHTS creatively harness technology to turn online materials into richer more effective learning tools In these ipped classrooms students study content virtually and then meet with faculty for personal interaction group work complex questions case problems and role-modeling. For testing he says Proctored examinations are critical to certify that this student sat on this day in this room and performed at this level. During his career the lines among scientic disciplines began to blur with physiology biochemistry genetics and associated anatomy all vying for the same intellectual space. Stephenson decided it didnt make sense from either a scientic or osteopathic standpoint to separate the teaching of structure and function. In 2000 he joined with John Wang biochemistry and Connie Osborn histology to reconstruct their teaching along the arc of structurefunction from the molecular to the whole-person level. By 2011 their Cell Biology and Physiology course sequence taught jointly to MSUCOM and CHM had grown to 525 students 28 faculty ve staff members and four campuses and Stephenson was the coordinator. The process was formidable for faculty and students an overview and precise objectives for each lesson detailed lecture notes with blanks to complete self-study problems practice exam questions. The study guide was more than 2000 pages in addition to assigned reading in texts. Today for MSUCOM this content is introduced in the second semester and then integrated throughout the organ systems courses. Different students learn in different ways and I want to give different styles of learners different footholds he said. It takes substantial time and effort. Students say its challenging but the material is very clear and complete. They can see that and appreciate the enthusiasm and work. Their appreciation has been expressed in more than 40 awards to Stephenson for his teaching. Stephenson credits the basic science departments for the value they place on teaching and the support they offer as being crucial. Because learning is far more important to Robert Stephenson than teaching hes created innovative approaches with the student in mind. 6 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 I believe we can say one thing almost unequivocally the primary care family practice system is extremely effective. Patients know they are always welcome to see a physician at no cost to them and from what we saw there are no issues regarding access. Family practice physicians are capable and caring and a strong caretaker who is known respected and often loved in the community. Preethy Subramanian MSUCOM Class of 2016 STUDENTS Experiencing the family medicine clinics in Cuba has re- emphasized my desire to enter outpatient medicine. It is rewarding to treat diseases once they present themselves but the Cuban public health care system has shown that prevention and education goes a long way. Although I will begin my career as a hospitalist I look forward to a second career as a primary care physician. Medicine is the same worldwide. While in Cuba rotating through internal medicine at Caliexto Garcia we came across many of the same mainstay problems seen today in America community acquired pneumonia congestive heart failure stroke lung cancer etc. It made me appreciate that the only differences in medicine between the U.S. and Cuba were the availability of resources needed to treat patients technology brand name meds sterile equipment. This made me realize how medicine is universal wherever you go. Nicholas Paik MSUCOM Class of 2016 CUBA A cultural experience close to home but a world away Leaders from MSUCOM and the Institute of International Health made history in April when they led the rst contingent of American medical and nursing students to Cuba for a two-week elective in hospital and clinical settings. The participants included second- and fourth-year osteopathic medical students allopathic students and nursing graduate students. They spent time with Cuban doctors and other health care professionals and learned about the countrys health care system its strengths and challenges. Several of the participants shared reections from the experience with Communiqu. SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 7 STUDENTS Meeting the people understanding the attitudes and seeing how health care was administered in a foreign country was an eye-opening experience and I took a lot away from it in terms of how I want to practice in the future and focus my energy as a physician. This reection will focus on the good the bad and the cultural differences that I took away from the Cuban healthcare system. Jack Swan MSUCOM Class of 2016 Walking around Old Havana was an exciting opportunity as many parts of it were so well restored maintaining the original Spanish colonial architecture it felt like a walk in the past. The embargo added to this effect with the minimal shops and classic brightly painted cars sporadically driving down the narrow streets. Ibrahim Haidar-Ahmad MSUCOM Class of 2016 The Cuban family practice doctors are truly the advocates of their patients and are at the center of their care. That is not to say that primary care doctors in the U.S. are not patient advocates however it reaches an entirely different level when you are scheduling house visits nearly every afternoon of your practice. In addition the model of having a primary care office downstairs sometimes literally from where you live ensures access to care for patients. Brian Wilder MSUCOM Class of 2016 It is the quality of the doctors their training their skills their passion etc. that really matters. You could see this with all the doctors that we interacted with. They loved their jobs and their patients. They were not in it for the money. The doctor seemed to love their country and their job more than any of the other things. This is something that is sometimes difficult to see in the U.S. After spending the last two years in hospitals around Michigan and the U.S. we were able to contrast this to health care outside of the U.S. It was a blessing to be able to compare the practices standards of care resources cultures etc. and it really opens your eyes. I was very happy to see the passion of the physicians and the love for their patients that was prevalent throughout the Cuban health care system. Jonathon Anthony MSUCOM Class of 2016 In two quick weeks I learned extensively about the Cuban health care system made lifelong friends partook in many surgeries laughed cried thought I was going to lose my hand from an infection I was wrong ate things that I still dont know what they were made from and did a lot of self- reection. Bo Pang MSUCOM Class of 2016 The Cuban and United States health care systems are very different on many levels. I truly believe that this trip was a great experience which denitely opened my eyes to how different cultures view health care. Even though Cuba is still developing with modest resources their health care system has a bright future due to the compassion of the health care team. They do the best with what they have and nothing seems to go to waste. I am grateful to have been given this wonderful opportunity and I am convinced that I will be a more caring physician after going on this trip. Joshua Blanchard MSUCOM Class of 2016 8 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 20168 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 By Pat Grauer A trendsetter in the American Osteopathic Association a faculty member with 35 years of leadership and an alumnus who has given extraordinary service to MSUCOM all have received the Walter F. Patenge Medal of Public Service the colleges highest honor. The awards were made on May 9 at MSUs Kellogg Hotel Conference Center. Former American Osteopathic Association Executive Director John B. Crosby Professor Emeritus James J. Rechtien and alumnus and anesthesiologist Robert L. Snyder received the 2016 awards which were named for the Lansing industrialist who was the rst president of the Michigan Osteopathic Medicine Advisory Board. JOHN B. CROSBY Executive director of the AOA for 16 years John Crosby led the organization through an era of signicant change and growth in the osteopathic profession. Under his guidance they were able to provide assistance to struggling osteopathic state and specialty organizations implement periodic unied OMED conferences create the Osteopathic International Alliance to foster discussions among practitioners worldwide conduct the Campaign for Osteopathic Unity to make D.O. a household word in the U.S. and design the branding initiative to establish AOA as the osteopathic professional family. The profession grew to more than 100000 D.O.s and students and gained unlimited practice rights in more than 60 countries globally. He was cited for his steady hand on the helm his vision of excellence and ability to implement it his leadership of staff and his partnership with the profession. Patenge Medals honor three lifetimes of service Celebrating the service and achievement of 2016 Patenge medalists were Dean William D. Strampel winners Robert L. Snyder James J. Rechtien John B. Crosby and family member James W. Patenge. JAMES J. RECHTIEN Rechtien was doing research at Argonne National Laboratory when he decided to become a D.O. After family practice in Rogers City Michigan he came to MSUCOMs Department of Biomechanics in 1980 and took a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation in 1983. He had appointments in seven departments often simultaneously and chaired four of them Anatomy Biomechanics Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. His research was signicant and included topics as far-ranging as the internal friction of neptunium renal hemodynamics and MRI studies of carpal tunnel disorders. He was cited for his willing spirit extraordinary adaptability extensive knowledge and excellence in classroom clinic and laboratory. ROBERT LEE SNYDER Robert Snyder has been a linchpin of excellent medical care at the center of Michigans Mitten. Born in Midland he returned there after completing his D.O. at MSUCOM to practice as an anesthesiologist and to become a driving force for enhanced health care in the region. An MSUCOM clinical assistant professor of osteopathic surgical specialties and now serving as an instructor for two courses Dr. Snyder has been active in teaching his entire career. He served as a board member of both MSUCOMs and MSUs alumni associations and of the Michigan Osteopathic College Foundation. He and his wife Shelley are members of the Jonathan L. Snyder Society individuals who have given between 100000 and 249999 to MSU. He was cited for his leadership his demonstrated commitment to improving the health of his community and his signicant service to MSUCOM and Michigan State University. AWARDS 8 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 9 FACULTY by Laura Probyn According to the National Eye Institute diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in American adults. There are roughly 7.7 million adults with the disease in the U.S. and 93 million worldwide. While there are currently treatment options for those suffering with diabetic retinopathy they are very invasive one requires monthly eye injections and can mean loss of night vision and peripheral vision. MSU Associate Professor of Physiology Julia Busik and her team recently published two papers one in the journal Stem Cells and another in PLOS ONE that describe ndings that have implications for new noninvasive treatment of diabetic retinopathy and potentially other diabetic complications. The work is focused on cell therapies specically on cells involved in vascular blood vessel repair. The vasculature has a very good capacity for repair she says. If you cut yourself its going to heal. The blood in the vessel will coagulate a new blood vessel will grow and you wont know you had that cut several days later. The same thing happens in the retina. The repair is made by cells circulating from the bone marrow. These cells called progenitor cells are released to make repairs when damage happens. Diabetes interferes with the bodys ability to repair itself. In the case of diabetic retinopathy the progenitor cells have decreased membrane uidity making most of the cells unable to squeeze out of the bone marrow into circulation. Even the progenitors that do get released have reduced ability to home into places where repairs are needed. Busik has found that when a person has diabetes the progenitor cells have high levels of an enzyme called acid sphingomyelinase leading to higher levels of very rigid lipid ceramide in the membranes thus reducing membrane uidity. She worked with MSU Professor of Chemistry Gary Blanchard to measure the progenitor cells membrane uidity and used animal models to show that blocking the acid sphingomyelinase enzyme in the bone marrow of diabetic individuals could protect them from retinal inammation and damage. By just blocking acid sphingomyelinase in the bone marrow cells we could treat the eye and make it healthy she points out. The Stem Cells paper examined diabetic retinopathy but because bone marrow IMPROVING RETINOPATHY TREATMENT A VISION FOR SAVING SIGHT affects the entire body its possible that blocking the enzyme might be benecial for other diabetic complications. Busiks challenge going forward is to rene the work. While limiting acid sphingomyelinase appears to be benecial to the progenitor cells in promoting retinal healing and limiting inammation its not an enzyme that can be completely blocked as doing so can bring on neurodegenerative disease. She will be using microRNA a type of molecule that controls gene expression to limit the enzyme. The microRNA shes looking at could function as a dimmer switch to regulate the acid sphingomyelinase without completely blocking it. Busiks work is supported by the National Eye Institute the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Jean P. Schultz Biomedical Research Endowment. Images showing the effect of diabetic retinopathy left on incorporation of bone marrow-derived cells green into retinal microglia and blood vessels red. Delivery of microRNAs is a new eld Busik notes. There are several labs looking at ways to deliver them and to target them to the tissue where you want to have an impact. At the same time that Busik is looking at cell transfer therapies the National Institutes of Health is currently supporting several clinical trials based on the principle that its possible to take a persons blood sample isolate the progenitor cells and grow them in a lab and then replace them into the patient and show improved healing. There are some new delivery mechanisms that are being developed that could offer better ways to inhibit the enzyme she notes. We are trying to rst prove that using the microRNA will work as well as just knocking out the acid sphingomyelinase but better because it will not have all of the side effects. In the future well want to see if we can collaborate with the labs working on the delivery mechanisms. In addition to her appointment with the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine she also carries appointments with the MSU colleges of natural science and human medicine and with MSU AgBioResearch. 10 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine Dean William Strampel D.O.

Those two years turned into 30 and on June 1 she retired from the university as a management analyst with the College of Osteopathic Medicine. She worked in several departments including two College of Human Medicine units before moving into then Dean Allen W. Jacobs ofce as an executive staff assistant nearly 19 years ago. Of the many responsibilities she has handled through the years one of the biggest has been her role as chairperson of fundraising and nance for the Michigan Osteopathic College Foundation Ball. When MSUCOM took on the MOCF endowment in 2005 Dean Strampel needed someone to take on the annual Balls organizational duties. I told him I love doing events. Let me do it she said. Im a planning and detail maniac anything that requires organizing and setting things up and making sure everyone has fun. The Ball has raised more than 3.5 million since the MOCF came under the auspices of the college and takes months to plan every year but its far from Kniffens only responsibility. She has also been responsible for handling a list of tasks ranging from clinical faculty appointments and communication to numerous reports budgeting and nances and organizing events like the scholarship dinner and the Holiday Open House. She also works to make sure theres a SHES HAD A BALL COLLEEN KNIFFEN RETIRES AFTER 31 YEARS WITH MSU STAFF representative from the Deans Ofce at every one of the 42 Statewide Campus System graduations that take place each spring. One of the nicest surprises she remembers was being named a recipient of the MSU Jack Breslin Distinguished Staff Award in 1995. She did not know that she had been nominated and when she pulled a letter out of her home mailbox addressed to her from then MSU Vice President for Finance and Operations Roger Wilkinson she was frightened by what it might possibly mean. I was scared. I couldnt gure out what he was sending me she laughs. It took a while to sink in. Kniffens immediate future goals include focusing on things that shes put off due to a busy work schedule. She plans to return to planning events but now instead of doing on a scale of 1000 osteopathic doctors governmental university and corporate ofcials shell be organizing personal events like baby showers and weddings. Colleen Kniffen by Laura Probyn A Methodist ministers wife and former hospital chaplains assistant long-time MSUCOM public relations professional Pat Grauer is no stranger to prayer. Shes also learned what happens when the answer to a prayer is a life-changing lesson. In 1973 she interviewed for a communications position with MSUs health colleges. The daughter of an M.D. she wanted to communicate about medicine but on bended knee asked God Please dont send me to that bone crusher school. The response came in the form of a job and a change in perspective that both began on July 1. As soon as I began to meet these doctors and when I began to see them work with patients and the rst time I ever saw OMM used it was powerful she says. I was attracted to how they did medicine. I would say within a week I was a convert and within two weeks I was a rabid convert. In the 43 years since Grauer has rabidly protected and promoted MSUCOM and osteopathic medicine. Shes worked with hundreds of students dozens of faculty and staff members and ve deans. One of her rst initiatives was to begin a regular communications instrument for the college. She developed a plan named the product Communiqu and received approval to move forward from then Dean Magen. Its had all sorts of iterations and Im proud that all these years later it is still going she notes. Among her most memorable assignments was the charge from Magen to lead a committee to create the Kobiljak Centers. The committee labored through the task of preparing a grant to the National Library of Medicine and was nearly ready to resubmit it when the family of A PROPONENT FOR THE PROFESSION PAT GRAUERS PASSION FOR OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE MSUCOM alumnus Stefan Kobiljak came forward and asked if the college had a need that memorial gifts for their son could fulll. We handed them the proposal that we had done for the National Library of Medicine and they funded it along with a scholarship in his name Grauer says. Though being in-the-know was part of her job description Grauer did get a surprise in 2014 when she was honored with an MSU Jack Breslin Distinguished Staff Award. Grauer hopes that her legacy will include MSUCOM programs that develop individuals and promote diversity the Leadership Academy for Compassionate Care diversity and cultural intelligence education and the William G. Anderson Slavery to Freedom lecture series. There have been so many things Ive been privileged to work on that normally dont fall under the PR job description she adds. So many fun exciting things have happened over the years that I really enjoyed doing with so many wonderful people. Thats what I rememberthe people. As she moves into retirement people will still be a big part of Grauers life primarily her three children and three grandchildren. She also plans to write several books and travel including at least once a year on a medical mission.

Harris Army Janee Mestrovich and Brandon Schornack. Its a day full of pomp and circumstance and a bit of magic a short walk across a stage and a bit of cloth transforming a hard-working student into a full physician an event that occurred 294 times at MSUs Breslin Center on May 5. It was MSUCOMs 43rd spring hooding ceremonies. After processions by the faculty students and platform party accompanied by the Lansing Concert Band and cheers from friends and family Dean William D. Strampel introduced distinguished guests and the keynote speaker Wolfgang G. Gilliar dean of the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine. Gilliar said In Western medicine our rst goalcoming from the ancient Greeksis to do no harm. The Chinese have an even more ancient saying Nature takes care of the cure the medicine amuses the patient.Your training as an osteopathic physician brings these two cultures together. You have access to every tool that modern medicine has to offerand you have that one additional tool the ability to use your hands in a way that lets nature restore a person to health. Michigan Osteopathic Association President and MSUCOM alumnus Robert G.G. Piccinini reminded the new physicians that though they will grow in independence and self-assurance . . . there is one aspect of your professional lives which will always be dictated by regulatory bodies . . . I learned as a member of MOA I had a voice . . . and a chance to direct the course of the association and my profession. Bo Pang president of the Class of 2016 shared the lessons she had learned about being a physician humility camaraderie and resilience. Pang urged her classmates to be instigators of change and to make sure that these changes are for the better . . . push for change that fosters collaboration respect and lifelong learning. Hooding was done by both faculty and family members and after the conferral of degrees each candidate was announced by Associate Dean for Student Services William M. Falls before he or she crossed the stage. All graduates and other D.O.s then recited the osteopathic oath led by Class Vice Presidents Andrew R. Ames Dana W. Burandt and Sylvia Michelle Hamara. Seven graduates were part of MSUCOMs DO-PhD Program Paul Anthony Beach Emilia Cristine Bof My-Trang Thi Dang Hae-Young Hawong Igor O. Korolev Dionisia Marie Quiroga and Chu-Yin Yeh. Strampel concluded the ceremonies with three precepts for healthy living Never make an act of omission an act of commission admit your mistakes. There are no unimportant people guard against allowing yourself to judge others. Finally all knowledge is relative being lled with great information about medicine remember that there are many things you know absolutely nothing about. Among the Class of 2016 are top Andrew Ames Jessica Krol Kelsey Kerton Michael Brenner Matthew Tornga and bottom Maddi Massa Dana Burandt Sylvia Hamara Bo Pang class president Andrea Bell and Allyson Barker. Many were hooded by family members including anc Vincent Cracolici M.D. with Marielle Kulling father Pedro Vargas J.D. with Alvin Vargas Samer Shaja with mother Najwa Shaja D.D.S. and Steven Van Rees with sister-in-law Ashley Van Rees D.P.T.

By Meg Spenchian On Jan. 23 the Pediatric Interest Group an MSUCOM organization for students interested in careers as pediatricians used funds from the MSU Federal Credit Union-sponsored Deans Choice grant program to sponsor a health fair for students in the Holt School District. The health fair called Spartans for Healthy Kids took place at Washington Woods Middle School and drew more than 80 families. Kimberly Mitcham a pediatrician and MSU assistant professor and Kathy Alaimo an MSU professor of food science and human nutrition discussed healthy habits and nutrition with parents while MSUCOM rst- and second- year students helped the children learn that it can be fun to choose nutritious snacks and activities. . People took away a new perspective about healthy life choices and taking one small commitment at a time to change the direction of their lives said Karishma Chopra the pediatrics group public relations chair. The childrens activities ranged from sampling nutritious treats presented by Lettuce Live Well foods in East Lansing to yoga massages a bounce house martial arts and Zumba exercise classes. The health fair also featured MyPlate the U.S. Department of Agricultures nutrition guidelines BMI and blood pressure readings and Mashni Dentistry showing the effects of soft drinks on teeth. Participants could also see OMM demonstrations from the MSUCOM Sports Medicine group and get free eye exams from Holt Eye Care. The Delhi Township Fire Department showed how it uses the Lucas 2 a hands-free CPR tool. We wanted to make an impact in the Holt community through having kids do different physical activities and having hands-on nutritional education said Pediatric Interest Group President Jaya Gupta. We also wanted to reach out to the parents simultaneously which we did through the different nutrition stations vendors and speakers. Even mascots wanted the chance to learn about healthy choices. Along with Sparty Holt High Schools Ram mascot made appearances at the event. Two MSU womens basketball players Tracy Nogle and Taylor Alton spoke about the importance of physical activity. The most rewarding part was seeing the kids become excited about learning about health said Chopra. From seeing them try kale chips and yoga for the rst time to learning about the MyPlate guidelines and being inspired by the MSU athletes at the closing ceremony the impact on the kids and seeing their enthusiasm for healthy habits was the most enriching part of the experience. The event nished off with a rafe featuring passes for a local roller skating rink a family ski pass and gift cards for Fresh Eatery a Lansing restaurant.

Many of MOAs leadership roles are lled by MSUCOM alumni who have fond memories of their time on campus. On the other end of the spectrum our energetic group of Student Liaisons have participated in MOA events in record numbers. My vantage point allows me the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of osteopathic physicians current past and future and learn the values our association provides. One particular value is legislative advocacy. For more than 30 years I have worked in legislative advocacy and never in that time have I seen more connection between physicians and the issues that shape their profession. Whether it is the urgency of the issues a heightened awareness or with the Internet the ease of access to information I see more young people concerned with the legislative and social issues physicians are facing. Last year the MOA put its support behind Senate Bill 150. The bill commonly referred to as the Med Synchronization Bill allows patients to work with their physicians and pharmacists to synchronize their multiple prescriptions each month. That bill was signed into law in March 2016. I was able to attend the bill signing ceremony and I was honored to be joined by MOA Student Trustee Duncan McGuire. As the governor signed the bill I looked over to see a future physician who is embracing the issues that will shape his profession. Afterward I asked Duncan what he took away from the event. He said Being a part of the ceremony was a reminder that physicians have a responsibility to shape health care in their communities. Its very gratifying to see that when our voices are heard we can achieve positive results. I smiled to myself knowing the connection still runs deep. The future of physicians is in great hands. BIG FISH BIG FUN MSUCOMers reel-y connected at the Big Fish in Dearborn on May 12 hooked on good company Spartan cookies and appetizers. The event sponsored by MSUCOMs Alumni Committee attracted nearly 225 people including alumni faculty students staff and friends. It was held at the conclusion of the Michigan Osteopathic Association House of Delegates meeting at the annual spring convention. MOA The full spectrum of MSUCOM classes were present at the Big Fish reception. They greeted old friends and made new ones gnoshed coconut shrimp and Spartan cookies and basked in the green glow of Spartans Will. SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 17 Office of Continuing Medical Education Barbara Briner USING THE HEAD TO HEAL by Pat Grauer Discontented with the practice of what she calls decapitated osteopathy Barbara Briner has dedicated her instruction to enhancing the scope rening the techniques and promoting the use of osteopathic cranial manipulation. A clinical professor of osteopathic manipulative medicine she has been teaching at MSUCOM since 1982 particularly in continuing medical education courses. The focus of the treatment is to allow cranial motion to occur said Briner. With traumatic brain injury from sports falls accidents or microtrauma the recovery time is shorter and improvement better with the use of cranial. It can alleviate headaches pain and vertigo. She teaches three courses each four-and-a-half days each year in East Lansing. Craniosacral Techniques Part I which covers classic material provides a solid anatomical and physiological foundation for the use of the techniques. Part II is a review of Part I with specialized techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of the sacrum diaphragm face and temporomandibular joint syndrome. Part III is all my own development subtleties I learned from the old D.O.s said Briner. It involves tuning with craniosacral motion throughout the body. Until the major vector of injury is neutralized there will always be recurring symptoms because the body will align to the vector. You can sense occupational patterns in people through the fascial linkages she said for example the listening pose of a therapist or patterns of people who use keyboards or play sports. Her pedigree is impressive she has worked alongside giants Philip E. Greenman Paul Kimberly Viola Frymann Fred Mitchell and John Upledger. Kimberly had studied with William G. Sutherland among the rst osteopathic physicians to recognize the usefulness of cranial manual medicine and part of Andrew Taylor Stills inner circle. Principles of Manual Medicine is a prerequisite for the other three courses. Part I will be held January 20-24 2017 Part II Sept. 30-Oct. 6 2016 and Sept. 22-26 2017 and Part III June 24-28 2016.

CME 18 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 ALUMNI by Pat Grauer As an MSUCOM student Brian Bakofen 05 was known for his energy and advocacy traits that he took with him ve years ago into his career as a lead physician at Fenway Health in Boston. Fenway began in 1971 as a volunteer program with three distinct priority collectives to serve women gay men and the elderly people who lived in their district of Boston. Impacted signicantly by the AIDS crisis in the early 1980s focus largely shifted to caring for patients with AIDS. Since HIVAIDS management has progressed and transformed this illness to a more chronic disease Fenways target patients have expanded to include all people including transgender health chronic care pediatrics behavioral health and obstetrics and gynecology in fact Fenway is one of the largest providers in New England for transgender health and HIV. Hired to do primary care Bakofen quickly moved into a managers role for his oor adding to his practice responsibility as a providers liaison and trainer for information technology committee work the Patient- Centered Medical Home transition team the opioid management team rounding as a hospitalist at Fenways major afliates and providing osteopathic manipulative medicine along with two other DO colleagues. Primary care is very hard but I like it Bakofen said. When I arrived I had no HIV treatment experience whatsoever and in the rst year they made sure I was certied as an HIV specialist its a requirement of employment. In addition some of Fenways providers have completed infectious disease fellowships and others are experts in transgender health. All Fenway primary care providers end up with HIV and transgender health training and patient care through an organizational commitment to education. Says Bakofen We spend a lot of time in education. Bakofen is excited by the research that is conducted at Fenway. We were the rst site in the U.S. for a major study on PreP pre- exposure prophylaxis of HIV he said. We were prescribing PreP earlier than just about anyone and now nationally it is preventing a lot of HIV transmission. Its awesome to walk in the door and think Wow I work in a place where things are happening. He notes that its a testament to the trust patients have for their caregivers that they are willing to participate in clinical research in high numbers. In addition they have a new program in which behavioralists are embedded within each medical area and are available to work with patients immediately at a point of need. What are Bakofens recommendations for treating a diverse patient population Make sure the patients feel welcome and comfortable. Avoid barriers such as restricting gender to male or female leave an option for other Make sure you know your patients preferred names even if theyre different than their legal names. Pronouns are also important but harder to learn. When I started writing her penis hurts was cognitively difcult but not now he said. For gender-uid patients ask what pronouns they want to use most of the time and remember they may not t the binary system most of us use When asking about sexual history be very open and general with your questions Are you sexually active What are your partners like What kinds of sex are you having Dont judge Dont be afraid to learn from the patient. OK I dont know much about that. Could you explain it Or I could look into it. We at Fenway have educational resources knowledge and are not judgmental Bakofen said. It makes a big difference when people walk in the doors and see others like them. To do all this in primary care is very rare but we take care of everything. BRIAN BAKOFEN HITTING HOME RUNS AT FENWAY Brian Bakofen found a home at Fenway Health which has met the needs of Bostons underserved populations for 45 years. 18 COMMUNIQU SUMMER 2016 SUMMER 2016 COMMUNIQU 19 M S U C O M A L U M N I N E T W O R K M S U C O M A L U M N I Faculty included left to right Mukherji Acquino DeStefano Link Ward Amaltano Strampel Brennan and Gilpin THE BEST SELF-CARE FOR PHYSICIANS MSUCOMS CME SEMINAR AND WORLD-CLASS BEACHES With 52 physicians taking the continuing medical education course and 96 persons on the trip MSUCOMs annual Healthy Lifestyles and Preventive Medicine seminar March 5-12 in Palm Beach Aruba was the largest one yet.

But Id say that technology also has damaged the art of medicine the ability to really connect with our patients and identify the attributes of health that cant be measured by machines hope and despair positive and negative attitudes health habits beliefs and relationships. Since medicine is an art and not simply science its vitally important for patient care that clinicians make eye contact be proactive about connecting with our patients during visits and lay on hands which as we all know is a primary way of connecting emotionally. As osteopathic physicians this has been a cornerstone of our profession but one that has rapidly begun to be lost as we move further into technology. As teachers and mentors for young physicians coming out of school and into residencies we need to remain mindful of the art of medicine and teach it as part of our discipline. We need to practice it model it advocate for it and sustain it so that medicine does not become a factory assembly line staffed by robots immune to the humanity of our patients. Gene Kielhorn80 is board-certied in family practice and started a private practice in Brooklyn Michigan in 1982 it has grown to include three physicians and about 5000 patients. He is on staff at Henry Ford Allegiance Health Jackson and St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea. He has been married to Rebecca since 1977 and they have four grown sons and ve grandchildren so far.
