Ways to Connect

Cabinet Secretary Rick Thompson held the 2nd of 5 meetings around the state yesterday to hear concerns from veterans about things like access to healthcare, and nursing homes. 

James McCormick is a 22-year veteran of the Iraq and Desert Storm Wars in the Army. He says there are many things vets in the state need.

“Well obviously access to healthcare is an important thing, the need for better understanding of PTSD and traumatic brain injuries and also we need to think about long-term care facilities for some of our aging veterans,” McCormick said.

Marshall University’s college of science is conducting an experiment that they hope will help them in the future.

The Marshall University College of Science installed a green roof in a small space just off the second floor of the science building. It’s the beginning of an experiment that will illustrate what it will take to maintain larger green roofs on the biotech building on campus. That building is being constructed. It’ll also play a role in Marshall’s continued effort to better handle storm water.

Chuck Somerville is the Dean of the College of Science.

  One Marshall University professor’s research is pretty unique. She’s examining the eastern diamondback rattlesnake, which isn’t in West Virginia. The research will take her to the Marine Corps training base in South Carolina. 

Jayme Waldron is an assistant professor of biology and conservation biologist. As a Marshall University undergrad she took part in studies looking at salamanders. That research took her to South Carolina where she gradually looked at reptiles and then rattle snakes.

With smoking bans at both of the state’s largest higher education institutions in full effect since July 1st, it’s now that students are back on both campuses that the real test begins.
