Stephen F. Austin State University’s Department of Biology will host the 28th J.H. Burr Jr. Distinguished Lecture in Biology at 7:30 p.m. April 28 in the Baker Pattillo Student Center’s Twilight Ballroom. Dr. Michael Hitchcock will present “Behind the Scenes of Personalized Medicine: Cancer Treatment in the Era of Human Genomics.”

Hitchcock received his Master of Science in biology from SFA and graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School.

He currently serves as a Hematology Fellow at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and will transition later this year to a position as a pathologist at Eastern Connecticut Pathology Consultants in Hartford, Connecticut.

“I want to highlight the progress we have made with targeted therapy and immunotherapy and introduce the audience to the technology and testing that occurs in that process,” Hitchcock said. “I also want to highlight all the career opportunities that are available in the diagnostic spectrum of the medical field: pathologists, cytogeneticists, flow cytometry analysts, histotechnologists and medical technologists.”

The J.H. Burr Jr. Distinguished Lecture in Biology is a speaker series endowed in honor of Professor J.H. Burr, who earned his doctoral degree in histology from Rice University and taught at SFA from 1951 to 1986. The series hosts speakers who discuss topics at the forefront of biological research.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Department of Biology at (936) 468-3601.

SFA Gardens’ Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series to feature horticulture specialist Brie Arthur

Horticulture media personality Brie Arthur will be the guest speaker for the SFA Gardens’ monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series, slated for 7 p.m. May 11 in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center.

Horticulture media personality Brie Arthur will be the guest speaker for the SFA Gardens’ monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series, slated for 7 p.m. May 11 in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center.

Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens will host the monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 11, in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center, located at 2900 Raguet St. Brie Arthur, a horticulture media personality, will present “The Foodscape Revolution.”

Originally from Southeastern Michigan, Arthur studied landscape design and horticulture at Purdue University. With more than a decade of experience as a grower and propagator at leading nurseries such as Plant Delights and Camellia Forest, she combines her passion for plants, design and communicating the value of horticulture.

Arthur is a correspondent on the PBS television show “Growing a Greener World” and is leading the national suburban foodscape movement — a community landscape practice that incorporates sustainable, local food production and embraces beauty and utility. Her forthcoming book, “The Foodscape Revolution,” published by St. Lynn’s Press, was made available in March.

Arthur has fine-tuned her signature foodscaping design technique by encouraging everyone to learn how pairing edibles in a traditional ornamental landscape increases bio-diversity and adds purpose to everyday spaces. The best edible and ornamental plants are featured to inspire attendees to create purposeful landscapes that engage people of all ages. Organic growing insights will be shared to encourage professionals and homeowners alike to embrace sustainable practices.

The Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series is held the second Thursday of each month and includes a rare-plant raffle after the program. The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations to the Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series fund are always appreciated.

Parking is available at nearby Raguet Elementary School, located at 2428 Raguet St., with continual shuttle service to the Brundrett Conservation Education Building.

For more information, call (936) 468-4129 or email sfagardens@sfasu.edu.

SFA to offer family nurse practitioner program with a Master of Science in Nursing this fall

Nurses across the state now have access to an online family nurse practitioner program that will be offered this fall by Stephen F. Austin State University. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Board of Nursing recently approved the Master of Science in Nursing program.

“The new program will help the whole community as well as the School of Nursing,” said Dr. Sara Bishop, director of SFA’s DeWitt School of Nursing. “We are already one of the best-known schools of nursing in Texas – our graduation rates are excellent, and our students perform remarkably on their state board exams. This program will offer nurses access to graduate nursing education and provide much-needed primary care to citizens in Deep East Texas.”

The Master of Science in Nursing with focus as a family nurse practitioner requires 46 credit hours and 720 minimum clinical hours to complete. Students will be allowed to utilize preceptors for clinical experiences in their home communities, when possible.

A $750,000 grant from the T.L.L. Temple Foundation strengthened development of the online program, which includes a few on-campus clinical experiences. “We could not have gained momentum if it were not for the support of the T.L.L. Temple Foundation, and we are most thankful,” Bishop said.

Admission to the program will occur only during the fall semester. Priority deadline for fall admission is July 1 for the 2017-18 academic year. After 2017-18, the priority deadline will be April 1.

There are several specific requirements for program admittance, including a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from an accredited institution, a current unencumbered Texas registered nurse license, one year of full-time or equivalent experience practicing as a registered nurse, and more.

The SFA nursing administrators stated that access to health care is a growing concern across the nation. Many Texas counties have a shortage of primary care providers, including the counties in Deep East Texas. The leaders believe this program will connect SFA and East Texas communities through learning opportunities.

“Many of the students will be working with area nurse practitioners and primary care physicians in clinical sites where they will receive assistance and training,” said Dr. Janice Hensarling, associate professor of nursing and Master of Science in Nursing assistant program coordinator. “We have already received so much support from the community, and our program will focus on the needs of rural East Texas.”

For additional information about admission requirements and other details, contact Hensarling at (936) 468-7732 or jhensarling@sfasu.edu.
