The next speaker in the Eating Disorders Resource Center’s “Ask the Experts” series founded a clinical program in Mexico to address eating disorders and mental health issues.
Dr. Eva Trujillo is the executive director of Comenzar de Nuevo, a nonprofit organization recognized throughout Latin America that supports the prevention, teaching, research, advocacy, and treatment of eating disorders at all levels of care. Her program is a model for other Latin American countries and has raised the standard of treatment available in Mexico.
Trujillo’s “Ask the Experts” talk on Dec. 16 will be a virtual event, set for 9:30-11 a.m. To register, visit https://edrcsv.org/get-informed/ask-the-experts.
This series, presented in collaboration with Santa Clara Family Health Plan, will continue in 2024 with other leaders in the field of eating disorders.
Tom Nemeth of the Metropolitan Education District’s new Electrical Vehicles/Automotive Services program was named MetroED Teacher of the Year at Santa Clara County’s 2023 Teacher Recognition Celebration last month.
Nemeth came to MetroEd’s Silicon Valley Career Technical Education (SVCTE) program to start a high school automotive vocational education and dealership internship. He has since developed partnerships for students to receive online training with Ford, Toyota, Tesla, Subaru and Nissan.
Fellow SCVTE faculty member Maggie Kasberger, who teaches Sports Medicine and Kinesiology, won an Innovation in STEM Awards, presented by The Tech Interactive. Last school year, Kasberger helped acquire an Anatomage Table for her program so that students can work on a life-size 3D “cadaver” via touch screen.
