Hayden Adkins - Special Session: Patrol Procedures
Eva Agcaoili (poster session, session 2, session 8, session 21) - see Philips, Robinson et al., Bonanoni et al., & Debate. Omar Aguilar - “Psychological Effects on Athletes’ Injuries” (poster session) The purpose of this research is to find the effects of injuries in college athletes and whether injuries are the cause of depression, loss of identity and difficulties with performance reclamation. The study assesses the correlation of the injury severity and performance reclamation while taking a look at the time taken in order to safely return. The Literature review has also shown different types of relations between these factors, meaning that depression and anxiety are very well present in athletes nowadays. My predictions are that injury severity and return to play time plays the biggest influence in performance reclamation.
Morgan Aitken (session 2) - see Robinson et al.
Sheyenne Anderson - “Diabetic Foot Care” (session 3) Research supports that diabetics are at an increased risk for foot complications. Some of these problems include: neuropathy, ulcerations, gangrene, infection, amputation. The purpose of this capstone project is to educate diabetic patients on how to prevent these complications in a booklet form. Diabetes is increasing, which is why maintaining good foot care is also becoming a high priority. Patients often forget the education they are taught in the hospital or doctor’s office by the time they get home. This take home booklet allows patients to see exactly what actions they need to take to improve their foot care habits. Brecon Antrillo - “Racoon Management” (session 1) Racoons are omnivorous animals. They love to eat animals and plants, they also love wooded areas and natural habitats near water. Racoons are a carrier of rabies and can be very harmful to humans and to the ecosystem. Racoons are very smart and have a good memory, they can also use their hands to take off the lids of trash cans and even open locks. Maintaining the racoon population will be difficult due to it
affecting other animal populations. Racoons negatively affect human health, agriculture and the ecosystem. Controlling and maintaining the racoon population will be difficult but can be done. Huber Arana - “Stimulant Addiction in College Students” (session 18) As prescription stimulants become more common on college campuses, concerns have been raised about the abuse of these drugs by college students. Adderall can be easily accessible through a prescription which means almost anyone can get it. There may be different solutions to these issues but it is not talked about enough and there is still not enough information about how these prescriptions can fully affect students in the long run. Estimates are that up to 20% of college students abuse prescription stimulants, most often by ingesting medications not prescribed to them. This paper describes different studies on college students of different age groups, genders, and the statistics of their studies.
Huber Arana - Special Session: Patrol Procedures
Jessica Arellano - “Incarcerated Parents and Deviant Children” (session 12) Children are easily influenced by everything they see and hear. Their parents have the most impact on their children and it’s very common for children to follow the footsteps of their parents whether that be good or bad. In this study, I conducted an analysis on the relationship between criminal/incarcerated parents and if their children were deviant, struggled, or faced any hardship. Trista Arnold - “Christian Perspective onWar and Peace” (session 13) This project explores the different Christian views on war. For clarification, the difference between several denominations will be explored, such as Catholicism, Lutheran, and Baptist, (the main denominations in Missouri), and Orthodoxy (the main denominations in both Russia and Ukraine). With this information and further research, this presentation looks into each branch’s reaction to the current war in Ukraine and how each of them sees it, drawing a conclusion on how religious groups know how to handle conflict.
Ana Arroyo (session 2) - see Robinson et al.
Taylor Audi - “Solitary Confinement” (poster session) The purpose of this study was to learn about the psychological effects of solitary confinement and raise awareness. The COVID-19 pandemic has allowed researchers to conduct research and gather insightful information over the past three years. The research revealed that the practice of solitary confinement in the prison system was a cruel and ineffective form of punishment and there were more viable alternatives. Solitary confinement was used as a form of punishment that led to long-term health effects. The longer a prisoner was in solitary confinement the more serious and irreversible the effects were. Emily Aversman - “Importance of Maintenance Education for Indwelling Urinary Catheters” (session 16) Indwelling urinary catheters are a common occurrence in the medical field and patients are often discharged home with them post- operative. Education is a vital part of the discharge process because without proper management, patients are at higher risk for infections and related complications. Many nursing residency programs research this topic to bring attention to the importance of tailoring education to a patient’s learning style. The education should include how to properly clean and maintain their catheter, identify manifestations of infection and complications, and should give patients confidence to independently manage their catheter at home. I made an educational booklet including QR codes to videos, illustrations, and images along with written instructions. Ensuring patient understanding and improving their health literacy has been proven to promote proper maintenance and to decrease occurrence of CAUTIs (catheter- associated urinary tract infections). Evan Baker - “Darter Diversity and Community Composition in Salt Fork Creek, Saline County, Missouri” (session 5) Darters are a diverse family of benthic fishes commonly found in cool, clear, and swift-flowing rivers of the Ozark Plateau. However, several species within the genera of Etheostoma and Percina have made permanent residence in the Salt Fork Creek, Saline County Missouri. Darters are sensitive to slight changes to their environment; and therefore, can be used as indicators of water quality and stream health. This study investigated the upper distribution limit of darters in the Salt Fork Creek, as well as a decline in darter community diversity below the Marshall Wastewater Treatment Plant as observed in previous research.
Evan Baker - “Management Plan for the Acipenseridae of Missouri” (session 9) Sturgeon are a species of fish with a long, prominent snout, featuring a mouth on its underside located behind dangling barbels, with lips that consist of fleshy lobes, and whose bodies are covered in rows of bony plates instead of scales. Missouri is home to three species of Sturgeon, which are all members of the Acipenseridae family, representing two genera, the Acipenser with one species and the Scaphirhynchus with two species. However, Missouri’s populations have been in decline since the 1900’s due to overfishing, damming of rivers, as well as slow growth and a late maturity for reproduction. The American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) is an example of how proper management can bring a dwindling population back from the brink of extinction to what is now a healthy and vibrant population. Located almost exclusively in lakes, swamps, freshwater rivers, and marshes in the southeastern area of the United States, the current population numbers are seeing conflicts with humans increase in overlapping areas. Management is needed to alleviate negative interactions with humans in developed areas while keeping the population flourishing within their home range. Caleb Bergman - “The American Alligator Management Plan” (session 1) Kayleigh Blaney & Natalia Ospino - “Walmart Corporation in the United States and Mexico” (session 6) This is a research study based off of howWalmart does business in its domestic market (United States) and its host market (Mexico). Through this research about the specific economic environments, we have come up with a marketing approach for the same product in both countries. Mariona Bolao Manen - “The Lighthouse” (session 17) This dark creative fiction piece explores the situation of a young woman whose life has been turned upside down. A familiar stranger shows up by her family’s holiday house, tired of being chased by the girl, and in a moment of challenge, the devil curses her into a siren body. Her mindset is shaped by her new beginnings, and now, all games are played by her rules.
Joao Bonanoni, Eva Agcaoili, Jahlil Howard, & Kara Cain - “Public Relations Students in the “Real World” (session 8) The PR450 class worked together with other divisions of the Mass Communication Department to create a plan for a crisis communication case based on real events. Students applied knowledge from their cumulation of Communication courses in order to gain practical experience as public relations practitioners. The case presented today is titled “Contaminated Lagoon”. Students followed the ten-step process to advance the company’s expansion, while also dealing with the media in times of crisis. The Strategic Communications department used this as a professionalizing experience for multiple divisions with a realistic ambush press conference, news releases, and social media experiences. Myah Borgman - “Incentive Spirometry Use for Covid Induced Pneumonia” (session 3) As we know, Covid-19 has recently changed our everyday lives. Symptoms range from a runny nose, losing senses, flu like symptoms, to pneumonia, and unfortunately death. To prevent severe cases of covid induced pneumonia, patients within the hospital are encouraged to use an incentive spirometer. An educational module will be used to inform peer nurses about how to use and the importance of the incentive spirometer to assist in prevention of covid pneumonia. The incentive spirometer is used to increase lung capacity, assist with atelectasis, reduce risk of infection, and improve movement of sputum, thus, aiding in prevention of pneumonia. Madisen Bottcher - “Breastfeeding Supplementation” (session 7) Developing an educational module on breastfeeding supplementation and how much of an effect it could have on increasing breastfeeding percentages. I am implementing this educational module in the Obstetrics unit and give all of the nurses within the unit knowledge and information on different ways to give breast milk besides the baby being latched to the breast and in return, using those alternatives will decrease the amount of formula supplementation that is being used now. It is important to increase knowledge and education on breastfeeding because there are so many benefits to breastfeeding and by using formula, it is decreasing our breastfeeding percentages significantly.
David Bowers - Debate (session 21)
Emma Bright - “Initiating Kangaroo Care to Improve Couplet’s Health and Promote Bonding” (session 16) Skin-to-skin contact, or Kangaroo Care, is where a newborn wears a diaper & is placed on their parent’s bare chest. This simple, non- pharmacological, act is recommended for at least an hour, however is beneficial if done for a shorter period. The prime time to initiate Kangaroo Care is shortly after birth because it provides warmth for the baby, normalizes the baby’s breath, soothes the couplet, encourages milk production, strengthens the parent-child bond & stabilizes the baby’s vital signs. Some hospitals have trained volunteer cuddlers because it is so beneficial in helping infants gain weight, reduce length of hospital stay & decrease hospital-acquired infections. Gracyn Bristow - “LGBTQ+ in Religion” (session 2) The purpose of this project is to determine the role of ethics in different religions in terms of members of the LGBTQ+ community. In most religious texts, it is mentioned that a man shall only lie with a woman, yet these same religions preach and try to practice love and equality for all. The question that is proposed is if it is ethical for these religions to dehumanize members of the LGBTQ+ community because their religious texts condemn people who differ from the regulations stated, or if all people, regardless of sexuality, should be treated and loved as equally as anyone else. Gage Brookman - “Eclectic Therapy Interventions in the Treatment of Adolescent Autism Diagnosis” (session 20) This capstone project looks at the treatment approach to a client the author worked with throughout the course of Practicum and Internship. The client, here named Allen, is 14 years of age and meets criteria for autism spectrum disorder, with comorbid anxiety and depression. This project looks at the combined modalities the author used in working with this client, the treatment plan, and the specific techniques and intervention employed in session. Also, the project gives the history of and supplies relevant empirical literature surrounding the modalities and treatment interventions. Vivian Buie - “The Promotion of Sleep for Patients Staying Overnight in the Hospital” (session 3) An important part of the human physiology and psychology that some people take for granted is obtaining an adequate amount of quality sleep. A growing concern in hospitals is the characteristics
of sleep patients attain during overnight hospital stays. Patients can have difficulty sleeping due to the new environment, a high level of environmental stimulation, and frequent interruption during sleep due to bathroom visits and/or planned care. This educational module for night shift healthcare workers will introduce interventions to promote sleep and their impact on length of patient hospital stay as well as patient satisfaction. Deirdre Burns - “On the Fringe” (session 10) My project explores Sherwood Anderson’s story “Hands,” in “Winesburg Ohio.” It was written in 1919 by Sherwood Anderson who has become somewhat of a forgotten author. In his literature he explored grotesque characters. A grotesque character according to Anderson are people who live out their truth in their lives but their truth turns out to be false and twists them psychologically. Wing Biddlebaum in the story “Hands” is one of Anderson’s grotesque characters. Wing’s hands have turned him into a grotesque and have left him isolated, misunderstood, and trapped in his traumatic past unable to become a fully realized human being. I will do a presentation on the story “Hands”with the goal of discussing Anderson’s literature and ideas with an audience. I will discuss why Wing has become grotesque and the characteristics that make him this way. I will use direct quotes from the story to support my evidence.
Kara Cain (session 8) - see Bonanoni et al.
Colton Campbell (session 14) - see Woehr
Bryan Carson - “Bibliotherapy: A Literature Review” (session 23) “Bibliotherapy” is a mental health treatment where professionals suggest or assign reading related to the client’s feelings, diagnoses, or situations. It was originally either interactive (mediated) with librarians and mental health providers in collaboration, or used as a self-help technique. For librarians, Bibliotherapy is related to reference and reader’s advisory assistance, recommending books, articles, websites, and other sources which help readers find the information that they need. Recently, however, most providers use the self-help definition. While studies using mediated Bibliotherapy showed effectiveness, self-help doesn’t work as well. I will review how the definition and execution of Bibliotherapy has changed.
Chandler Christiansen - Special Session: Patrol Procedures
Lauren Conkwright - “Rusty Patch Bumblebee Endangerment” (session 5) The Rusty Patched Bumblebee (Bombus affinis) is a species that has historically been distributed throughout the northern regions of North America. It can be easily identified through physical appearance such as an all black head with a reddish patch on the back of workers. After scientists recorded a steep decline in the population, the Rusty Patched Bumblebee was added to the endangered species list in 2017. To reverse this endangerment, additional undisturbed habitat that allows for floral resource foraging in the early spring through fall and overwintering habitat for the queens is needed. Lauryn Craine - “Red Pandas, a Bug, and Filial Piety” (session 12) Some teens and young adults experience filial piety as shown through how Turning Red has been relatable to many across the globe. This made me think of the question, how the texts “Diary of a Madman,” “The Metamorphosis,” and the movie Turning Red showcase filial piety in a more modern experience. I will be researching about what filial piety is, its origins and applying it to the movie Turning Red and the texts, “The Diary of a Madman,”“The Metamorphosis.” I will also be adding my Western experience with filial piety as well.
Emmandarry David - Special Session: Patrol Procedures
Jacklyn Dickey - “Assessment Of Dark-Skinned Patients For Skin Breakdown and Pressure Injuries” (session 7) An educational module and presentation of how to correctly assess darkly pigmented skin compared to fair-skinned patients. There is a continuous growth of diversity and a significant lack of education regarding varieties of skin types and their differences in presentation. The importance of knowing how to assess all skin decreases the prevalence of pressure injuries, infection, cost, and length of hospital stays. Ismail Diyani - “How Crypto Currency will be the Payment Method in the Future” (session 6) Cryptocurrency is the future of money. It’s in a decentralized blockchain which means it’s not related to a central bank and not backed up by gold but by full faith and credit. I chose this project
because of the revolution of cryptocurrency in recent years. With the nft’s appearing and web 3.0 made it go up because of the items sold on open sea and to buy from this website you can only use cryptocurrency. I want to show the audience what cryptocurrency is and how it developed into a center of interest where everyone wants to invest in Domestic Violence Police Response Scenario - (ongoing) Students in the CJ285 Patrol Procedures class will be responding to a simulated domestic violence scenario. The students will respond as if they are law enforcement officers responding to a real-life disturbance call. The students will then prepare a full report of their involvement in the incident as their final class project. Anyone attending the symposium is invited to observe the scenarios in the Malcolm Gym on the south side. The scenario will be repeated every 20 minutes with different students participating each time. Anna-Clara Eckhoff - “Preventing ICU Delirium” (session 7) ICU delirium has the traits of acute variations in cognition that can develop in hours or days of being hospitalized. These variations can include alterations in the level of consciousness, as well as differences in behavioral disorders. It is possible to determine which patients are more at risk of developing ICU delirium and how it can be avoided. Recognizing the difference between delirium and dementia is a crucial step in determining treatment. Once delirium is identified, there are tools used to help prevent it. It is also important to recognize the effect delirium has on family members. With the right education, for both staff and family, ICU delirium could be avoided. Keywords: delirium, prevention The aim of this research project is to gain a better understanding of the impact of Coronavirus-related restriction and the social isolation experienced by individuals alongside expected symptoms of Covid Burnout. In order to do this, an online survey has been sent out to students currently in PY-100 which will gather information regarding the extent of their social isolation between the timeframe March 2020 and August 2020 alongside questions designed to identify symptoms of Covid burnout. It has been hypothesized that the more severe the restrictions an individual experiences, the more likely they Jordyn Ellison - “Social Isolation in COVID 19: Impact on Psychological Health” (poster session)
are to experience perceived symptoms of Coronavirus burnout. Data collection is currently ongoing. Alyssandra Espindola - “The Future Aspirations of Student- Athletes Playing Soccer at Missouri Valley” (session 2) Missouri Valley College’s (MVC) population consists of approximately 95% of individuals who play a sport for the college. How many of these athletes are student-athletes or athlete-students? How many of these athlete-students actually see the results they want? My study explored a cross-sectional study of 2021 MVC men and woman’s soccer players that are also full time students to determine if their priorities were focused on their sport or their academics. The importance of this study is to bring light to the possibility that a majority of these athlete- students may have misguided priorities when it comes to their future aspirations. Brooklyn Evans - “Hypertension Interventions” (session 3) Patients with hypertension are at risk for detrimental health conditions such as stroke or heart disease. To assist with this, I am creating an educational module for patients with hypertension. This educational module includes two lifestyle changes and ways to decrease hypertension. Diet is one component in decreasing hypertension by choosing the right foods for the heart and body. Exercise is the other component to control blood pressure. Using these two components to teach patients how to make those changes in their daily lives, allows patients to learn about their bodies and become in control of their blood pressure.

Megan Ferguson - “Anxiety Reduction in Cancer Patients” (session 7) In this educational module, the focus will be on finding evidenced based research to share with other staff nurses how to implement a two-hour quiet period and the use of aromatherapy and music therapy towards the reduction of anxiety and stress related to cancer treatments. A cancer diagnosis by itself does increase the amount of anxiety and stress the patient endures. Cancer chemotherapy treatment can also increase the likelihood of chronic pain, depression, nausea, vomiting, and insomnia. Current research trends have discussed how contemporary treatment styles, including music andPage 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14 Page 15 Page 16 Page 17 Page 18 Page 19 Page 20 Page 21 Page 22 Page 23 Page 24 Page 25 Page 26 Page 27 Page 28 Page 29 Page 30 Page 31 Page 32 Page 33 Page 34 Page 35 Page 36 Page 37 Page 38 Page 39 Page 40 Page 41 Page 42 Page 43 Page 44 Page 45 Page 46
