The educational gap that is present within urban communities is causing a steep divide within the overall STEM industry. A lack of exposure, academic support and resources are hindering the possibilities of minority youth within the STEM industry. President Obama has noticed the void and gap and developed an initiative to combat it.Highlighting the notion that if America wants to compete with other countries our youth must be able to embrace a technological, scientific, mathematic and engineering platform to ensure our place as a world trailblazer. Tonight we are going to address why there is a gap within urban schools and how we can enrich youth with opportunities to advance within STEM.
The role of allogeneic stem cell transplantation is evolving in the paradigm of myeloma treatment. Despite its therapeutic potential of a myeloma cure, the use of donor stem cell transplantation or allogeneic transplantation is highly debated in the medical field due to the safety risks and rate of relapse. We are talking to Dr. Komanduri to better understand allogeneic transplants, optimal timing and how to manage graft-versus-myeloma effect for improved efficacy and safety.
Dr. Komanduri is Medical Director of the hematopoietic stem cell transplant program at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, one of the fastest growing programs in the country.
An interview with Dr. Jomo Mutegi
"My research agenda, which addresses the underrepresentation of African Americans in science and science-related careers, consists of three lines of scholarship. In the first I explore students science knowledge as a factor that influences career decisions. In the second line of scholarship I explore racism in student teacher interactions to determine the degree to which race bias inhibits African Americans from pursuing science and science-related careers. The third and most central line of scholarship is educational praxis. Herein I work to use science education as a tool for improving the African American community."
NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances, resources, and the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores, therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.
"We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."

Featured book: Lessons From The 12 Archangels Divine Intervention in Daily Life
The 12 Archangels of the Central Sun (Soul) of the Universe are all-powerful and all-loving energies that pour forth from the Heart of God like flowing rays of singing sunshine. These energies are similar to the music coming from a perfectly tuned orchestra where it is difficult to distinguish one instrument from another. From the sacred music and light of the Central Sun, the 12 Archangels created Earth, an amazing schoolroom established so that Oneness (ALL THAT IS) can dream a dark dream and experience the reality of fear and the illusion of being separated from the Creator.
The purpose and experience from working with the authentic guidance in Lessons from the 12 Archangels is to discover how to change our everyday reality to living on Earth as we do in Heaven, a place and space where we are conscious of our divinity and the healing power that lives within us.
Bio:A scientist by training, with dual master’s degrees in microbiology and environmental science (Indiana University), Belinda was called into service by the 12 Archangels while working in a medical university lab as she was doing a stem cell experiment. For nearly 25 years since that meeting, Belinda has had an active spiritual counseling practice, working with the 12 Archangels, to support individuals, couples and families with seemingly impossible problems to solve.
Girls Can Do (GCD) provides positive role models who are everyday yet extraordinary women talking about choices, determination, hardships, failure, resilience, and success. The Girls Can Do event series started with a single speaker and a small idea in January 2014. Since then, it has quickly grown into a movement with a big vision and big plans to match. Its mission is to inspire a generation of possibility thinkers, and to encourage young women to have big dreams and pursue them. After all, what you want to do in life is always your best option, and anything is possible if you expect it. GCD hosts events around the country and the world, at low to no cost for young women and girls. These events are special days where girls come to engage, connect, and share experiences with amazing women speakers who are pursuing their dreams. They also partner with local organizations focused on girls programming to provide “next steps” for newly inspired Possibility Thinkers.
Ashby Fiser of Bainbridge Island is an Outreach Focus volunteer for GCD, and a UX Researcher and Designer in her professional life. Join us as we discuss GCD, empowerment, and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
