New science is shedding light on just how important mental health is for athletic performance. One of the people spearheading a movement towards mental health in sports is today’s guest, Bradley Donohue, a professor of psychology at UNLV.
UNLV recently created the position of Emergency Manger, a role that entails preparing for scenarios you hope will never happen. Filling the role is Yuri Graves, who headed emergency scenarios and preparedness for the US Coast Guard and the City of Henderson.
In the aftermath of the 10/1 shooting, Steven Banning, a UNLV professor, went into academic action. He began tracking the mental health impact the shooting had on people at the concert and in the Las Vegas area. He reveals what he learned from his work, and how we should think about treating the unseen wounds of mass shootings.
Your genes not only reveal you backstory, but also future choices you may want to make regarding your health. Dr. Martin Schiller is a professor at UNLV who runs the Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine. He’s interested in bioinformatics and genomics, and using that information to develop individualized treatments to patients.
Emergencies and crises happen. It’s just the world we live in, and Las Vegas is uniquely at risk as one of the world’s top tourist attractions. That’s why UNLV recently created the position of Emergency Manger, a role that entails preparing for scenarios you hope will never happen. Heading the new role is Yuri Graves, who formerly worked on emergency scenarios and preparedness for the US Coast Guard and the City of Henderson.
