Get ready for DisrupTech

If you’re looking to get a head start on the future, mark your calendars for July 11: the date of this year’s celebration of the disruptive technology created by Laboratory scientists. Presented by the Laboratory’s Feynman Center and the New Mexico Angels, DisrupTech gives scientists the chance to present their innovative work to entrepreneurs, investors, policy makers and industrial partners. To get more information or register to attend, visit the event website. DisrupTech is part of Los Alamos' ScienceFest, which runs July 9 - 14, including Discovery Day on July 13.

Mental health first aid course open to the public

The Laboratory’s Ombuds Office is holding a free training course on mental health first aid June 17 and 18, and members of the community are invited to attend. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack — even if you have no clinical training — mental health first aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis. The course, which will be taught in two four-hour blocks across two days in White Rock, covers risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. For more information or to register, call Evelyn Martinez at (505) 665-2837.
