Pamela MacRae Awarded Inaugural Unity College Undergraduate Research Mentor Award

Unity, Maine – Unity College Assistant Professor of Sustainable Fisheries Management Pamela MacRae has been named the recipient of the newly established Unity College Undergraduate Research Mentor Award.

Earlier this year, the directors of the Unity College Undergraduate Research Program and the office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs issued a call to faculty to submit proposals for mentoring undergraduate research. Designed to give opportunities to facilitate a robust faculty-student collaborative learning environment, the annual Undergraduate Research Mentor Award allows beneficiaries $1000 in seed money to commence the project, as well as a crucial 3-credit course release in order to have enough dedicated time to pursue the research. A top criterion for selecting a winning submission is that the faculty member offers a clearly detailed explanation of how students will be included in the entire process, from implementation to intensive subject research through completion of the project.

In her proposed project, “A Comparison of Fish Assemblage Structure in Lakes with and without Alewife,” MacRae and a student collaborator will study fish assemblage structure in lakes and investigate the impact of alewives in local Maine waters. They will begin their research Fall 2014.

Specifically, MacRae and her research student will look at the effects of re-introducing alewives on small schooling fishes in the littoral zone, the area of the lake that is close to the shore. These fish typically feed on plankton and are prey to the area sport fish, occupying an important place in aquatic food webs.

“Maine’s historically thriving alewife population has plummeted over the last two centuries, largely due to dams that block the natural spawning migration pattern of the species,” said MacRae. “While the effect on recreational fish of alewife re-introduction has been the focus of various local studies, as a fish community ecologist I think it is as important to examine the impact of the small forage fish in these lakes.”

Wildlife and Fisheries Management major Brian Eaton ‘16, was chosen to work with MacRae on the project. Eaton, a student in MacRae’s Population and Community Ecology course, was a fitting choice having had previous research experience on a project studying fish communities. Additionally, Ian Sypek ’15 and Richard Lee ’15 will be volunteering on this project, helping Eaton with sampling.

“Pamela’s proposal stood out given her coherent research objectives, a sound timeline and the outline of rigorous student learning outcomes,” said Kevin Spigel, Associate Professor of Geoscience and co-director of the Undergraduate Research Program at Unity College. “Her project also indicated robust student involvement, and clearly illustrated the reciprocal benefits of close faculty mentorship which ultimately contributes to a richer undergraduate education.”

In recent years Unity College has gained national attention for a variety of achievements including its focus on sustainability science, the vanguard in the fight for the mitigation of global climate change. Other ground-breaking “green” innovations include the award-winning TerraHaus, the first student residence on a college or university campus built to the Passive House standard, the most energy efficient building standard in the world, and its first-in-the-nation decision to divest from investments in fossil fuels, igniting a growing national movement in higher education.

Through the framework of sustainability science, Unity College provides a liberal arts education that emphasizes the environment and natural resources. Through experiential and collaborative learning, our graduates emerge as responsible citizens, environmental stewards, and visionary leaders.

TAMC Cardiac Rehab helps County woman heal heart to help others

Aroostook County – A County woman has a new lease on life and celebrated it recently by walking in the 33rd Annual UMPI Spring Runoff 5K Road Race with a staff member from TAMC’s Cardiac Rehab Department who helped make it possible.

Carolyn Kimball of Presque Isle, a retired Aroostook County Action Program (ACAP) employee and longtime volunteer for various local organizations, always led an active life. She enjoys outdoor activities like walking, hiking, kayaking and biking, and she continued to participate in her active lifestyle despite being aware of an aortic aneurism for the past few years. That all changed early last fall when some ominous symptoms began to appear.

“In September, I started having pains in my arms when I would walk,” said Kimball. Doctors found a 95 percent blockage in one artery and a 90 percent blockage in other areas. I did not know that I had any blockages. That came as a surprise.”

On October 16, doctors performed a triple bypass and re-sectioned the area of her aorta containing the aneurism. The procedures were successful, and she was able to begin her cardiac rehab shortly after Thanksgiving in 2013.

“At admission time, Carolyn came to us very weak and de-conditioned, and she appeared very pale and frail,” said Mitzi McKenney, RN of TAMC’s Cardiac Rehab Department, which is certified by AACVPR (American Association of Cardiovascular Pulmonary Rehabilitation). Despite that, she came to rehab as a very determined woman.

“Her enthusiastic zest for life was evident by her conversation with me during my assessment,” said McKenney. “She had hopes of regaining some strength and energy so she could return to enjoying many forms of outdoor activities and her regular volunteer hours at TAMC and in the community.”

Ever since Kimball retired, and even before, she has lived a life of giving. She volunteers in the oncology department at TAMC and as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer advocating for children in court. She’s also on the board of directors for both the St. Apollonia Dental Clinic in Presque Isle and for ACAP. Among other things, Kimball is also actively involved with her church and enjoys helping with their mission work.

“Part of the admission process in our department is having clients verbalize their goals. As nurses, we then incorporate those goals in the patient plan of care. This has a two-fold benefit. Stating goals benefits the rehab process by defining a purpose for each client. It also keeps each client’s personal goals in front of us as care plan providers,” explained McKenney.

Kimball’s goals were unique in that even her goals for obtaining physical health were woven into her desire to help others, because to give more, she needed to have the strength and endurance to complete physical tasks. Her goals included returning to work as a volunteer, completing a mission trip to Alabama to help work on home repair, walking in a 5K race and climbing Mount Washington with her sister-in-law.

With her goals in mind, Kimball began her road to recovery at Cardiac Rehab. She worked with the staff at TAMC three days a week and then began keeping up an active routine on her off days.

“We follow an exercise prescription and have MET (metabolic equivalent) level stages. A MET level is the energy cost of an activity,” explained McKenney. “The cardiac rehab activities are tailored to the individual. We tweak the difficulty many times so subtle, that the client is unaware that they are working harder, and before long, they are getting stronger and have more endurance.”

Kimball’s determination to reach her goals became stronger with each goal she met. Before long, she had returned to her volunteer activities, and in February she went with a group of 16 people from her church to Alabama.

“We worked hard, and I wasn’t the only one who got tired. I wasn’t really sure that I was going to be able to do that, but the rehab helped a lot,” said Kimball of the experience. “I think my endurance is better now. I can walk up the hill. I get a little out of breath, but not much.”

“To see Carolyn blossom during her weeks of attending cardiac rehab makes me feel so happy and reminds me why I love my job,” said McKenney. “Carolyn’s determination is a wonderful example of encouragement for others.”

Kimball’s participation in UMPI’s Spring Runoff 5K event marked the completion of three of her four goals. Her story inspired McKenney to walk with Kimball in the event and other staff members from rehab and Kimball’s daughter to run in the event.

“The walk was fun, and it was great having Mitzi with me,” said Kimball of her participation in the 5K event. “I was out of breath, so I still have some things to work on.”

With the success of this walk under her belt, Kimball plans to walk in another 5K on May 4. The event is a fundraiser for Homeless Services of Aroostook and the Hope & Justice Project.

Kimball has one more goal left to complete, which she plans to do this summer when she climbs Mount Washington with her sister-in-law. Every step she takes is training and conditioning for this final feat. In preparation, she plans to first scale some smaller mountains. She knows she has a busy few months ahead of her, but she knows she can do it.

Kimball hopes that her success and experience can inspire others to consider cardiac rehab. “I’d absolutely recommend it to anyone,” she said. “A lot of people get very depressed, but every time I went to rehab, I felt better. I think it’s good psychologically as well as physically.”

Kimball recommends that cardiac rehab patients set goals by finding something they enjoy doing and then making that a goal. “It could be gardening, riding a bike, looking after children… I feel like I was given an extension on my life, that’s enough to make anyone happy,” she said.

McKenney says cardiac rehab can offer the same opportunity for a second lease on life to others.

“Cardiac rehab provides a safety net of activities that show a patient what they can do safely at home. It also provides an extra set of eyes on a client as they continue to heal post operatively or post cardiac event such as a heart attack,” said McKenney. “We see the patients generally every other day, and many times we can detect a problem or a need for physician intervention or a medication adjustment long before the patient’s scheduled appointment.”

McKenney says a camaraderie develops between patients and staff from the rehab sessions, which is a big boost to the patients. This encouragement is so significant, that the Cardiac Rehab Department at TAMC has established a Healthy Hearts Club so that alumni can continue to participate in the environment even after graduating from their program.

Maine Humanities Council receives $150,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities


For More Information:

Lizz Sinclair, Maine Humanities Council, 207-773-5051

April 24, 2014

PORTLAND, Maine – The Maine Humanities Council has received a grant of $150,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop and offer programming for veterans in Maine and nationwide. Building on the multi-year track record of MHC’s Literature & Medicine: Humanities at the Heart of Healthcare program for caregivers and staff within the VA system in Maine and several other states, this new variant will offer facilitated reading and discussion programs to veterans directly.

The program, a multi-session reading and discussion group, will provide an informal, non-military setting for veterans to connect and share their experiences, give voice to interests and issues of concern, and engage with other veterans. The program, to be developed in partnership with a team of veterans and humanities professionals, will be based on issues and themes that those veterans have highlighted as important to them. The initial programs will take place in Maine and twelve other states throughout the U.S.

“The Council is very proud to have been awarded this grant from the NEH and to have been chosen to develop nationwide humanities programming for veterans,” said MHC Executive Director Hayden Anderson. “We look forward to working with, and learning from, Maine’s veterans as they guide us in developing and offering this program.”

The first sessions are expected to launch this summer.

The human experience is increasingly mediated. All messaging about politics, products, and culture come to us in manipulated form through publicity, marketing, or advertising. Media is used constantly to orchestrate how we feel, and what we think and do. It has real and lasting consequences in our lives. Without awareness of the machinery working to influence us, the choices we make are not our own. This workshop will seek to create awareness of modern media’s incredible influence on women’s physical, mental, financial, sexual, and digital health.

Free Event. Light Refreshments.

RSVP required to attend.

To RSVP email educate@mabelwadsworth.org or call 947-5337.
