Kenny Slaught On Positive Progress Towards Global Health Made At UCSB

Kenny Slaught is proud to note that David Low, a professor in UCSB’s Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, will head up an innovative global health and development research project that will go by the title of “Strategy for development of enteric pathogen-specific phage”. Low’s research focuses on a revolutionary way to fight against serious bacterial pathogens that have become resistant to many once-powerful antibiotics. He will create phage to locate and destroy several pathogenic bacteria to avoid enteric diseases in small youth. They will engineer different versions of the T2 lytic bacteriophage that bind multiple different regions of the BamA protein found on the surface of several pathogenic bacteria, which will ensure they only infect these target bacteria. They will test the different phage for ability to kill pathogenic E. coli and Shigella, and whether they will end up forming a resistance.

Kenny Slaught Notes Charitable Initiative Providing Insight For Better Community Outreach

Annually, the symposium allows educators, artists, donors, and local not-for-profits to meet students and members of the community and discuss the state of arts education in the area. This incredible initiative provides insight and direction for forming better, more focused programs in the future. Other education outreach projects include a drive to collect instruments to donate to students in need, grants for local programs that wish to make use of resources available at the Santa Barbara Bowl, and funding for college students pursuing the performing arts. Additionally, notes Kenny Slaught, the foundation finances a children’s program at Cottage Hospital and various in-school and after-school programs, particularly in neighborhoods feeling the concert season at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The Notes for Notes program, however, connects students with free instruments and lessons. A massive volunteer committee oversees the educational outreach projects.

Kenny Slaught Discusses Benefits Of Hospice Youth Support Initiatives

Kenny Slaught endorses Hospice of Santa Barbara for building an active presence at local school campuses of all levels, from elementary school to college. Volunteers visit campuses and organize weekly support groups for students experiencing traumatic or complex scenarios and requiring a safe space in which to discuss their thoughts and feelings. On-campus groups aim to create open atmospheres that encourage self-reflection and boost critical coping skills. Effective coping skills help adolescents avoid drugs, alcohol, and other forms of self-medication. In addition to direct work with students, the hospice volunteers offer training to faculty and staff members about how to communicate with students who are dealing with trauma and how to handle their questions about death, most notably violent deaths and suicide. Each of the 65 schools in the Hospice of Santa Barbara network can call on the organization around the clock to respond to a traumatic situation quickly and successfully.
