Jessica's Project: Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Prevention

St. Philip’s College announced a new location and two additional presenters for its Nov. 9 Jessica's Project activities addressing traumatic brain injury prevention and awareness as a local health issue. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) prevention is the subject of the program Nov. 9 from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the Bowden Alumni Center of the college’s Sutton Learning Center at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive in the city’s Denver Heights neighborhood. This event is open to the public with free admission and parking. For details on attending, contact Dr. Solomon Nfor, college biotechnology program coordinator and organizer for the classroom series known as Jessica's Project, at 210-486-2754 or snfor@alamo.edu.

The additional presenters are Melanie Cawthon and Jonas Crafts. Cawthon is co-founder and executive director of disABILITYsa, an organization that creates awareness and advances public attitudes around disability. Crafts is a former NFL player and owner of two local preventative medical practices. Cawthon is one of seven participants and five presenters for an expected 550 guests in Season Six of Jessica's Project activities. The college has confirmed the attendance of 400 SPC students, 130 Brackenridge High School students, one Brackenridge faculty member and 14 SPC faculty members, Nfor said.

“Guests with diverse CTE injury experiences will be given a voice to tell their stories, and Melanie Cawthon and Jonas Crafts are excited to collaborate with us as presenters,” Nfor said. “We will also present a demonstration using computerized mannequins controlled by the staff of our college’s Patient Simulation Center and Nursing Laboratories to safely inform on the impact of and ways to prevent traumatic brain injury,” said Nfor.

About Jessica’s Project: Jessica's Project http://alamo.edu/spc/jessicasproject/ is an innovative six-year-old series of semester classroom events that have engaged hundreds of St. Philip's College students and faculty (from arts and sciences, health sciences and applied science and technology) with the community to address a health issue through an evidence-based program. With faculty sponsorship, students learn about the impact of nutrition on health as they raise awareness on campus and in their community. Past projects have addressed spina bifida, cardiovascular health, celiac disease, gastroparesis, Crohn's disease and unplanned pregnancy prevention. The community partners in the Nov. 9 Jessica's Project event are UTSA Health, Hope4minds, and Texas Brain Injury Alliance.
