Red Rock Elementary Celebrates Diversity in America

Las Vegas-based business consulting and CPA firm Johnson Advisors visited Red Rock Elementary School on June 7 to announce the winner of the firm’s annual Fourth of July art contest during the school’s end-of-the-year assembly. Johnson Advisors annually celebrates the birth of our great country and supports the youth in our community by partnering with an under-served elementary school in Clark Country to participate in its annual Fourth of July Card Program.The winning artwork will grace the front cover of the firm’s Fourth of July card that is sent to clients, friends of the firm, and other members of the community.

“Our firm values the importance, and responsibility, of giving back to our community. As many of us were once students in the Clark County School District, we feel one of the best ways to give back is through education,” Johnson Advisors Tax Manager Russell Oberhelman said.

The 3rd, 4th, & 5th graders at Red Rock Elementary were asked to portray why America is a great country to live in and what being an American means to them. Hundreds of artistically creative entries were submitted, but it was 5th grader Gabriella Holmes’ artwork that captured this year’s theme – Diversity. Gabriella drew the Statue of Liberty that was embraced by the words “Peace”, “Freedom”, “Democracy”, and “Harmony” to represent her thoughts on why America is great. As a token of the firm’s appreciation, Gabriella was awarded a basket of art supplies and a $5,000 cash contribution was made to the school’s general fund.

Her responsibilities as Branch Manager include making sure the branch runs smoothly while focusing on growing the membership base in Henderson amongst the many healthcare and government employees.

Touro.jpgTouro University Nevada Medical Students Pave Way for Improved Marijuana DUI Testing

In mid-May, Nevada lawmakers passed bill AB135 and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed, creating a new law that will change the standard for DUI testing for marijuana impairment thanks to the dedication and hard work of two medical students.

Graham Lambert and Charles Cullison, Touro University Nevada medical students, provided integral research and information to lawmakers to change from urine testing to blood testing as the primary assessment for those thought to be driving under the influence of marijuana. Lambert, a former Petty Officer and Avionics Specialist in the United States Navy and Cullison, a native Nevadan, recently completed their second year of medical school and will soon begin clinical rotations as third-year students. Both are pursuing their medical education as part of the military’s Health Professions Scholarship Program and will be commissioned as active duty officers at the end of their medical training.

Touro University Nevada School of Physician Assistant Studies Has Partnered with Veterans Village 2 to Provide Healthcare Assistance to Underserved Community

Touro University Nevada (TUN) has partnered with non-profit Veterans Village 2 to provide free healthcare, via the university’s Physician Assistant Studies mobile healthcare clinic, for those veterans living in the community.

“The mobile healthcare clinic provides access to medical care that our veterans are not getting,” said Arnold Stalk, co-founder of Veterans Village Las Vegas. “This type of medical care solves a myriad of problems that our veterans have. It’s a wonderful program; creative, beautiful and innovative, that gets basic services to our veterans who desperately need them.”

Under the supervision of TUN faculty, students working on the Touro Mobile Healthcare Clinic have the opportunity to provide medical care to those living in the Las Vegas Valley’s most underserved communities. The clinic provides a variety of services to Southern Nevada’s homeless population, including physical examinations, wellness checks, wound care, and more.

“We are excited to form this tremendous partnership with Veterans Village 2 as we work together to solve the veteran homelessness problem within our community,” said Dr. Phil Tobin, Director of Touro’s Physician Assistant Program. “Our goal is to better prepare our students for their future as healthcare providers while offering quality care to those who need it most.”

In 2014, Touro established its first mobile healthcare clinic through the generous support of private donors. Currently, the university operates two mobile healthcare units that serve Opportunity Village, The Shade Tree, Veterans Village 2, Catholic Charities and other organizations.
