Texila American University is listed among local entities embracing ‘green’ energy

Several organisations have been embracing the notion of green energy which is derived from natural sources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, plants, algae and geothermal heat. These energy resources are renewable and that can be naturally replenished.

Texila American University, a growing Medical School in the Caribbean with its best campus in Guyana is among the local entities that have started to embrace the notion of green energy. This has been particularly event at the institution’s Providence building which is designed to be fully green-compliant.

This development has been substantiated by the University’s Vice President of International Operations, Mr. Ashok Kumar.

“one of the ideas was to ensure that the building is as [green] energy efficient as possible. This included considering the key areas of natural light which directly impacts on the energy used in the building. We had experts who designed it in a way so that we can get [natural] light all the time.”

According to Kumar too, this design has even been incorporated into the air conditioning system that has been set up in its 100,000-square foot building, designed to cater to at least 1,000 students.

“If you look at the air conditioning system which we have implemented, it is a recent and modern technology which has some initial [high] investment but gives a lot of returns in the long run.”

But Kumar noted that despite all the energy-driven measures, the institution has plans to put in place a solar panel system. This is because “we have also designed it [the building] to run with solar…right now we have the design for solar energy, but we have not implemented it yet.”

“Other things we are looking at before we implement this, is how we can get the system where we can give back the excess amount of electricity to the grid. What experts have advised us is that when we are looking at an amount that we can power the entire building [with], obviously, we will have an excess which should be given to the grid,” Kumar explained.

He continued by pointing out that “the generation of these other sources will not be able to absorb all the excess load, so we will be looking forward very soon to do this…and government is also coming up with new regulations with respect to solar, so we are looking to see how quickly we can go completely solar,” Kumar added.

World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), observed on 21 March every year, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.

It causes delays in physical and intellectual development It alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with Down syndrome and is the most frequently occurring chromosomal disorder.

Down Syndrome is named after a doctor who first described the disease Dr. John Langdon Down.

Down syndrome is not related to race, nationality, religion or socioeconomic status. The most important fact to know about individuals with Down syndrome is that they are more like others than they are different.

  • Trisomy 21 (nondisjunction) accounts for 95% of cases
  • Translocation accounts for about 4%
  • Mosaicism accounts for about 1%

People with Down syndrome have an increased risk for certain medical conditions like heart defects, respiratory and hearing problems, Alzheimer’s disease, childhood leukaemia and many more

Psychology Programs @ Texila

Approximately one in every 700 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome – about 6,000 each year. There are more than 400,000 people living with Down syndrome.

In 1983, the average life expectancy of a person with Down syndrome was a mere 25-years-old. Today, it’s 60.

Living with a rare disease

Rare Disease Day 2017

Millions around the world suffer from rare diseases that attract little attention in the public arena. On February 28th, those who endure these often-neglected illnesses will take centre stage in a global observation of Worldwide Rare Disease Day. This is an important day for increasing awareness of the many challenges unique to rare diseases.

Public Health Programs @ Texila

What’s great about Rare Disease Day???

It focuses on the whole spectrum of rare diseases, and hopefully will prompt increased advocacy and better representation for all rare disorders.

Any illness that affects a small portion of the population is considered a rare disease, also known as an orphan disease. Although rare and genetic diseases, and many times the symptoms, are uncommon to most doctors, rare diseases as a whole represent a large medical challenge.

  • African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness is a rare disease that occurs regularly in some regions of sub-Saharan Africa with the population at risk being about 70 million in 36 countries. As of 2010, over 9000 deaths per year have been reported. An estimated 30,000 people are currently infected with an average of 7,000 new infections per year. More than 80% of these cases are in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
  • Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive (FOP) is an extremely rare connective tissue disease. The disease is caused by a mutation of the body’s repair mechanism, which causes fibrous tissue. As of 2017, approximately 800 cases of FOP have been confirmed worldwide making FOP one of the rarest diseases known.

Here are some facts about rare diseases that you may not already know:

  • Rare diseases impact more people than AIDS and cancer combined
  • 95% of rare diseases do not have a single drug
  • Only 15% of rare diseases have organizations or foundations providing support or driving research

Paying tribute to the millions of families whose daily lives are impacted, and who are living day-by-day, hand-in-hand with rare disease patients.

A Person’s Disease May Be RARE but Their Hope Should Not Be.
