After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation and overcoming the challenges of feeding & fussiness.

Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor.

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Creating a Climate of Patient Safety

 

“Creating a Climate of Patient Safety”

 

Across the globe, leaders of health systems and healthcare organizations have been working tirelessly to reduce adverse outcomes for patients.  Policies and reimbursement models have evolved, hospital protocols have been implemented, and technologies have been leveraged.  Despite these advances, many cultural barriers to patient safety remain in our healthcare system.  In our own country, there have been national news stories about caregivers who raise concerns surrounding patient safety being marginalized or even fired.

All of this leads to some compelling questions: what do leaders of healthcare organizations need to do to create a culture of patient safety in their organizations?  Are new technologies part of the solution?  Is public reporting or “pay for performance” related to patient safety part of the solution or does it just create more cultural problems?

To tackle these questions, BYHP is excited to partner with the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQUA) in presenting “Creating a Climate of Patient Safety.”  Come join our international panel of healthcare quality and patient safety experts, hailing both from across town and around the globe, to discuss the critical issue of patient safety and what it means for evolving healthcare systems across the globe today.

Step Up Step In BU for SAO Student Groups

Step Up Step In BU (SUSIBU) bystander training is a requirement by Student Activities Office for recognized student organizations accepting funding from the Allocations Board.  Each organization must send at lease one person with allocation responsibilities to a training session.


SUSIBU is an interactive bystander training session to raise awareness about sexual assault and what we as members of the BU community can do to help prevent it.  Sessions run approximately two hours in length.  Please be aware that because Step Up Step In BU training is interactive, there is a minimum number of participants necessary for the training to proceed as scheduled.  If the minimum number of participants required for the training session has not been met, you will be notified by e-mail in advance that the session has been canceled.  We apologize for this inconvenience, and ask that you please sign up for another session.  When you are attending a training session, please be sure to arrive on time – late arrivals may have to reschedule to attend another session.


Please contact the Sexual Assault Response & Prevention Center (SARP) at 617.353.7227 or sarp@bu.edu, if you have any questions or concerns about the SUSIBU training content.  Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at our training!


 

SUSIBU FAQs for SAO Student Group Leaders

 

 Do I need to register to attend a SUSIBU training?

  • Yes, please register for a SUSIBU session. Due to the interactive nature of SUSIBU, students have given us feedback that sessions with few participants are less engaging and worthwhile. Therefore, we will cancel sessions that do not have enough students registered. If you would like to request a SUSIBU session for your student group, athletic team, department, or group,  please visit http://www.bu.edu/sarp/how-we-prevent/.

 

What do I need to know about SUSIBU if I am in a Student Group Leader?

  • The University has required that all student groups seeking access to funding must participate in the SUSIBU program.  At minimum, one member of your executive board must attend training in order to access Allocations Board funding.  Please note that according to SAO you will not have access to funds until at least one member of your Executive Board completes the SUSIBU training during the fall semester. Please plan well in advance to complete this requirement by registering as soon as session dates are available.

 

If I am a member of a group but not on the Executive Board, will my attendance fulfill the requirement for the group?

  • In general, SAO requires an E-Board member to attend, however they understand not everyone is able to or feels comfortable attending this training.  The requirement can be flexible, when needed, as to who attends the training. Please contact the Student Activities Office with specific questions at 617.353.3635 or sao@bu.edu

 

If I am a member of multiple Student Groups, can my attendance fulfill the requirement for several groups?

  • No, your attendance can only count for one group. Each group should have a unique representative present.

 

If I have created a new Student Group for Spring semester will the group be able to complete the SUSIBU training and receive funding from the Allocations Board?

  • Yes, SARP holds SUSIBU sessions for newly formed SAO Student Groups at the beginning of Spring semester so that your group will have access to AB funds.

 

If I am not a part of a student group but still want to go through the SUSIBU training, how do I sign up?

Ashkenazi Identity and White Jews Working Against Racism: A Conversation and Potluck

A Workshop for Young Adults Led by Ri J. Turner

Sunday April 19th, 2015

**Registration deadline April 12th**White supremacy in the US and in the world at large, and Ashkenazi dominance within Jewish communities and institutions -- these are two matters of grave concern for many of us who consider ourselves to be Jewish anti-racist activists.  But how do these two dynamics intersect?  How are they analogous and how are they different?  Where does anti-Semitism fit into the picture?  What does this all have to do with Israel / Palestine?  What is the history of Ashkenazi identity and what has been its fate in the rapidly globalizing American racial system?  Is it possible to reclaim Ashkenazi identity without reinforcing Ashkenazi dominance?  And for those of us who identify as Ashkenazi and white, how do these identities act as obstacles or resources in our work to end racism? In this workshop, we will discuss the relationship between white privilege and Ashkenazi ethnic identity, particularly in terms of how it affects our relationship to confronting racism both inside and outside of the Jewish community.  We'll work together to define terms, examine our beliefs and assumptions, and develop an analysis of the relationship between whiteness and Ashkenazi identity and how that plays out for us as activists with a variety of racial and ethnic identities. 
We will also discuss the history of Ashkenazi identity over the past couple of centuries, particularly in terms of  the development of European Jewish nationalist movements including but not limited to Zionism, emigration from Europe, and assimilation into the American racial system. 
Finally, we'll consider the ways in which American and global white supremacy, and Ashkenazi dominance within the Jewish community, are both similar and different, and how an analysis of these power dynamics can help us develop awareness and clarity about ways in which white Ashkenazi Jews can participate effectively in the movement to end racism.

Eligibility: • This workshop will be geared towards Young Adults (primarily 20s and 30s). 

• This workshop is open to participants of all racial and ethnic identifications.  

• Participants are expected to have some background in thinking and talking about race and anti-racism (this workshop will not provide anti-racism 101; the conversation will operate from the presumptions that racism and racial privilege are real and systemic and that Jews of European descent participate in and benefit from white privilege).

• If you have any questions or concerns about any the above, please contact Ri at ri.j.turner@gmail.com.
Preparation: In advance of the workshop, please read Chapter 1 of How Jews Became White Folks and What That Says About Race in America by Karen Brodkin and excerpts from The Colors of Jews: Racial Politics and Radical Diasporism by Melanie Kaye Kantrowitz (PDFs will be provided once you register). Please bring a potluck dish to share!

$15 members, $25 non-members.

The Most Important Conversation America Isn't Having: How to live well to the end of life

Founded by Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Ellen Goodman, The Conversation Project is a public engagement campaign with a goal that is both simple and transformative: to have every person’s end-of-life wishes expressed and respected. Ellen Goodman offers us tools for having a conversation about values with our loved ones—parents, children, other family members and friends, in order to achileve happier endings. The Conversation Project counts among its advisors, Dr. Atul Gawande, author of the current bestseller—Being Mortal.

Ellen Goodman has spent most of her life chronicling social change and its impact on American life. As a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist she was one of the first women to open up the op-ed pages to women’s voices and became, according to Media Watch, the most widely syndicated progressive columnist in the country.

The Jerusalem Paradox:
Religion, Violence And The Path to Peace


How is it that the cradle of so many religions has been home to so much violence? And what might the future hold? James Carroll, Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at Suffolk University, a columnist for the Boston Globe, and the author of eleven novels and eight works of non-fiction, among them Constantine's Sword; Jerusalem, Jerusalem; and Christ Actually, offers a unique and insightful perspective on the past and the future of this troubled spiritual center. Whether in his column or in his books, Carroll is clear about his central concerns: "My defining committments are to peace and reformed religion—critical religion—and democratic values."

Carroll was ordained to the priesthood in 1969 and served as a Catholic Chaplain at Boston University until 1974, when he left the priesthood to become a writer. James Carroll has been called “one of the most adept and versatile writers on the American scene today” (Denver Post) and he has won multiple awards for his work.

Rabbi Sonia Saltzman

Join the Conversation: The TOS Talks Book Club with Rabbi Saltzman

Rabbi Saltzman grew up in Chile, in a home imbued with Jewish values, but at a time when opportunities for Jewish learning were especially limited for women. When asked why she entered the rabbinate, Rabbi Saltzman responds,

"I believe in the wisdom and beauty of Judaism and hope to inspire others to deepen their relationship to Judaism by offering opportunities to engage with our sacred texts, to experience the richness of prayer and to build a caring and committed community."— Rabbi Sonia Saltzman
