Sacred Heart University’s Pioneer Performance Center will host RUNScience, an annual, evidence-based sports science clinic for local running coaches and athletes, Dec. 3, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., at SHU’s Center for Healthcare Education. “Participants will learn about the most up-to-date running information in biomechanics, nutrition, physiology and strength and conditioning,” says Rich Marcello, SHU clinical exercise scientist and instructor in the Department of Exercise Science. Connecticut high school coaches and teachers who take part in the clinic will receive certificates of completion for professional development credit.
Sacred Heart University has forged a partnership with Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN) who, along with other health care agencies and community service providers, is focused on using a team-based approach to partner with high risk patients and improve their health care access and outcomes. The collaboration has resulted in an interprofessional student “health-care hotspotting” program—essentially a data-driven process to identify high needs patients who could benefit from more active outreach to engage them in their healthcare, supported by student teams.
“Fee-for-service” health care will soon be left far behind if insurance companies like United Healthcare (UHC) are guiding the delivery system, according to Daryl Richard, UHC’s vice president of corporate communications, who spoke recently at Sacred Heart University’s new Center for Healthcare Education.
