Well I made it through finals week and now it’s time to start up a new quarter. For these next 8 weeks I will only be taking one class, ALH 621 Cardiovascular Pharmacodynamics. This class is entirely online and will provide a basic knowledge of the drugs used to treat cardiovascular diseases and pulmonary conditions such as congestive heart failure, asthma, edema, pulmonary hypertension, and COPD.


The initial context seems intense, but I look forward to learning about the particular pharmacodynamics of the drugs and how they’re used to treat clinical conditions. As the course continues I will be able to share much more about what the class entails.
For now though I would like to inform you about our Graduate Open House, which is being hosted this Saturday October 26th by Canisius College. The open house will be located in the Chester HON ’01 and Diane Stranczek Commons of the Science Hall, which is located at the corner of Main Street and Jefferson Avenue.


The Office of Professional Studies as well as other graduate programs will be available to meet with students to discuss their interests and answer any questions they might have. Not only will Dennis Koch, director of Health and Human Performance, be present, but Graduate Assistants; Jesse Sahli, Alycia Gossett, and myself will also be on hand to assist in answering any questions of concern.


If you are unable to attend please fill free to email either Dennis Koch or Sandy McKenna with any questions you might have about the program itself.


Hope to see you there!
