Colorado State University, Bayer Corporation, Washington State University, UC Davis, Utah State University Forestry Extension, USFWS, USGS present:

Cheatgrass, Medusahead, and Ventenata: Ecological Impacts, Interactions, and Current Management

An in-depth management review of three invasive grasses in the Western United States

WEBINAR SYMPOSIUM: Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM

These invasive annual grasses are devastating western natural areas and rangeland, resulting in landscape-scale transformations in a cycle that favors further invasion.

Further Impacts include:

  • A continuous bed of fine fuel associated with an increase in frequency and intensity of rangeland wildfire

  • Significant reduction or elimination of desirable perennial species

  • Reduced forage quality for wildlife and livestock

  • Increased risks for wildlife and pollinator species

  • Resulting wildfires that are a threat to humans, wildlife, property, and infrastructure.

Speakers will address all of these points including a university/industry research update on current management tools for the triple threat.

Speakers: Matt Germino, USGS; Matthew Brooks, USGS; Roy Averill-Murray, USFWS; Lindy Garner, USFWS; Dr. Derek Sebastian, Bayer VM Stewardship and Development Team and Shannon Clark, CSU PhD Candidate; Dr. Scott Nissen, Colorado State University; Dr. Ian Burke, Washington State University, Ventenata Control; Dr. Corey Ransom, Utah State University; Tom Getts, UC Davis.

The ABC’s of MDI: Gaining a working knowledge of Multiple Daily Injection insulin therapy

11:00 am EDT

Multiple Daily Injections (MDI), has given the diabetic more control over their life and their diabetes. People with diabetes no longer are forced to eat meals at certain times. MDI also imitates the body's way of administering insulin just as if the Pancreas was healthy. Insulin is administered when needed and not until then. Diabetics who take care of monitoring their levels and adjusting their insulin can enjoy more flexibility in their meals. Tune into this webinar to help your patients/clients understand MDI and better monitor their diabetes.

Learning Objectives:
After this presentation, the attendee should be able to:
1.     Identify at least 2 types of basal insulin and 2 types of bolus insulin used for MDI therapy
2.     Explain 3 approaches to carbohydrate quantification
3.     Describe snacking guidelines for persons using MDI therapy
