Goal Oriented Webinar: The 3 Most Important Questions

Wrap-up the year and set the stage for the next by answering the 3 most important questions.Most goals we set in life are means oriented rather than ends oriented. While means goals have a “so” in them and conform to your environment, ends goals prompt us to follow our hearts, intuition and feelings. Traditional goal setting commands you to define what you want and how you are going to achieve it. However, it frequently falls short in that it fails to provide any guidance as to whether the goals are right for you. Means goals can also lack linkage to your passion, vision and momentum to make those goals happen. Ends goals in contrast fall into 3 buckets: experience, growth and contribution. Join us in this guided adventure where you will learn more about the difference between means and ends goals and generate end goalsfor yourself. During our time together, you will (1) design your experience, (2) envision your growth and (3) outline your contribution.  Download this worksheet for the webinar:

Role of vWf-ADAMTS13 homeostasis in microthrombi formation and immunothrombosis; implications in diabetes

The consequences of microangiopathy and its associated coagulopathies occur with excessive activation of immune cells, activation of coagulation cascade precursors, and platelet dysfunction. During this process, there is a disbalance in von Willebrand factor (vWf) and its natural cleavage factor, ADAMTS13, that promotes microthrombi formation by excess of high molecular weight vWf multimer accumulation in target organs. Trauma has allowed us to study these induced consequences in platelets and endothelial cells in the process of immunothrombosis. This talk will engage the audience with novel findings in the area of vWf-ADAMTS13 homeostasis in microthrombi formation and immunothrombosis. We will also address the implication of this new knowledge in a disease model that shows increased thrombocytosis and coagulopathy as in diabetic patients.
