Last summer Colorado saw a surge in mosquito populations, driving up West Nile cases. 🦟

MSU Denver Biology students and recent grads, under the guidance of "Mosquito Man" and MSU Denver Biology Professor Bob Hancock, Ph.D., logged over 3,300 hours in urgent mosquito surveillance efforts to help combat the outbreak.

The study was unprecedented and featured in an article in the Journal of the European Mosquito Control Association.

La Paloma, a jazz trio of MSU Denver students, debuted at Jazz Odyssey Presents, hosted by KUVO Jazz 🎺

The two-hour performance was accompanied by poems and history remarks by a leading member of the band, Paloma Ress. After moving to Denver from a reservation in New Mexico, Paloma felt like she lost a part of her identity. “I wanted the show to be about the magic of what it means to be Indigenous and the resilience of that,” she said.

In 2022, Raeann earned her degree from MSU Denver and was elected Douglas County Coroner. Her motto, "We speak for the deceased but also take care of the living," reflects her unwavering commitment to supporting grieving families with respect and dignity.

Launching water rockets with the Physics Department 🚀

How does it work? Before launch, the bottle is filled with some amount of water, which acts as the “propellant” for the launch.

Since water is about 100 times heavier than air, the expelled water produces more thrust than compressed air alone.

Meet David Morrison, a former pro boxer and recent MSU Denver Department of Nutrition graduate! 🎓

Originally from the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in southeastern Montana, Morrison followed boxing to Denver. Though he eventually earned a degree through MSU Denver’s Individualized Degree Program, focusing on Exercise Science and Sport Conditioning, he found he still couldn’t answer questions from fellow boxers about how to sustain their energy throughout training.

“I started getting a lot of questions about nutrition,” Morrison said. “I thought, I can either just start working in sports conditioning or I can go back and focus on nutrition and do what I actually want to do.”

Morrison has already found success in his chosen career path. He pitched Fuel Tank Nutrition, an organization that ensures that youth athletes understand the components of a healthy meal, at the Reimagine Wellness Challenge held by the MSU Denver Gina and Frank Day Health Institute. And he won big, taking home the grand prize of $12,000 to launch the program.

The classes and demonstrations held through Fuel Tank Nutrition teach young people how to tell the difference between nutrient-dense meals and processed foods.

“And hopefully, they can understand when they eat a well-balanced meal that it helps them have satiety versus eating processed foods and then they’re wondering why they’re still hungry 15 minutes later,” Morrison said.

Fuel Tank Nutrition launched its first round of classes at the Johnson Recreation Center in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood in March. The classes serve kids who participate in sports of all kinds, he said.

Next up, Morrison plans to scale the program in conjunction with Brick City Boxing Academy, providing six-week nutrition and cooking demonstrations that empower youth, parents and communities. And as if he didn’t have enough on his plate, Morrison also plans to start the Nutrition master’s program this fall!

“My idea of wellness in the community was providing this nutrition program for the youth athletes, to offer them knowledge that will help them have the energy they need to get through the boxing training,” he said. “So having the sports-conditioning and the nutrition background, I just want to pair them together to be able to help boxers.”
