APSU history graduate student Katelynn DiStefano takes part in archeology dig in Peru

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Archeology may not be a career Austin Peay State University history graduate student Katelynn DiStefano is pursuing academically, but that did not stop the graduate assistant in the University’s Department of History and Philosophy from spending part of her summer searching for mummies along the northern coast of Peru.

DiStefano joined University of Alabama Ph.D. student Jenna Hurtubise, along with a small group of students and archeologists, in traveling to the South American country, where they continued Hurtubise’s work in excavating and analyzing the history of the Casma, an underexplored ancient Peruvian culture.

American Heart Association says Frequent Simulation-Based Training may improve CPR proficiency among hospital staff

 

American Heart Association Meeting Report

American Heart AssociationNew Orleans, LA – A new training model improved CPR skills in a clinical setting according to research presented during the Resuscitation Science Symposium at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2016.

Currently, hospital staff are only required to undergo formal CPR training every two years.

Hands-Only CPR has just two easy steps: If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, (1) Call 9-1-1 and (2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the disco song “Stayin’ Alive.” The American Heart Association’s Hands-OnlyTM CPR at this beat can more than double or triple a person’s chances of survival.

APSU installs new permanent sculpture “The Cardboard Kids”

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN –  To pay tribute to a student population at the very heart of Austin Peay State University’s (APSU) mission, work recently began on a permanent art installation on the University campus, titled “The Cardboard Kids: Monument to the Non-Traditional Student.”

Non-traditional students come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. For some, marriage and a family changed their priorities, while others may have enlisted in the military or simply decided a four-year college wasn’t right for them after graduating high school.
