As taught in 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. Functional analysis begins with a marriage of linear algebra and metric topology. These work together in a highly effective way to elucidate problems arising from differential equations. Solutions are sought in an infinite dimensional space of functions. This module paves the way by establishing the principal theorems (all due in part to the great Polish mathematician Stefan Banach) and exploring their diverse consequences. Topics to be covered will include:
Leadership and Management
Through this module participants will have a better understanding of themselves and their impacts on others. They will understand the similarities and differences between management and leadership, as well as different models/styles and principles of leadership, the strengths and weaknesses of each, when they should be used and their potential use in improving population health and wellbeing. * Powerpoint presentation (for all users) * Powerpoint presentation with lecturer's notes (registere

Poco a Poco: Heath-Care Collaboration in Honduras
The Arizona Health Sciences Center at the University of Arizona assists individuals and communities statewide through a variety of outreach efforts. However, global initiatives are under way, too; members of the AHSC community are making a health-care difference in Honduras. While visiting a remote region of the Central American nation this winter, AHSC faculty, friends and others watched as a new clinic -- one that they helped to become a reality -- began to take shape.
Taking the Baby on the Road
A neonatologist at the University of Arizona College of Medicine is using simulation technology to prepare residents at University Medical Center and health-care professionals in outlying communities to manage crisis situations involving newborn babies. Her hands-on approach to neonatal resuscitation protocol (NRP) helps to foster teamwork and instill confidence in her students.
The goal of the Genetic Origins Program is to allow students to use their own DNA variations (polymorphisms) as a means to explore our shared genetic heritage and its implications for human health and society. Genetic Origins focuses on two types of DNA variations: an Alu insertion polymorphism on chromosome 16 (PV92) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the control region of the mitochondrial (mt) chromosome. With two alleles and three genotypes, PV92 is a simple genetic system that il

The China-Africa alliance
Africa is critically important to China’s global strategy, for a number of reasons: the continent’s geopolitical importance; its large, untapped market; and its abundance of natural resources. And as more Chinese companies feel the need to enter new markets and seek more resources, Africa will only see increased Chinese business and investment activity.
Faster relief: humanitarian organisations
The public and private sectors have a lot to gain by working together on disasters. The private sector can help humanitarian organisations improve how they get people, goods, money and information to disaster zones. In return, companies can learn valuable lessons about working in extreme conditions and make a positive contribution to society as well.
