MVES Technology Mission Statement

 With the understanding that the use of technology will be an integral part of our students’ lives, it is Mesa View Elementary School’s responsibility to prepare students for this future.  Our classrooms must have the equipment, technology, and technical support to allow teachers to use technology in their everyday lessons.  As we integrate technology, we will support the teaching and learning that promotes intellectual growth and lifelong learning for students and staff. 
The technology mission of Mesa View Elementary School is to provide equitable access for all students and staff to technological resources. These resources promote the critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills that are required for students to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in a technologically complex, multicultural, and global environment.  This mission includes the use of technology to enhance, preserve and highlight Dine’ language, culture and traditional teaching philosophies.

GADGET-PD Genetic and Digital Diagnosis of Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s Disease Trial – Full Text View

Destiny Viator

The proposed study will capitalize on the early predictive information stored in an individual’s genetic risk for Parkinson Disease (PD) in combination with the subtle features of tremors that can be extracted from movement data gathered by modern compact accelerometers in order to determine if accurate discrimination of essential tremor (ET) from PD can be achieved. Both of these technologies have a proven but somewhat limited ability to inform diagnosis of PD or differentiation of PD from ET – especially at early stages of the disease. The investigators hypothesize that a combination of prior genetic risk and current disease symptomology can synergize for accurate and early discrimination of PD from ET and ultimately inform a cost effective approach to movement disorder diagnosis.

In this study, the investigators will collect blood from individuals with confirmed late-onset diagnosis of PD and ET. Gold standard diagnosis status will be determined via the Unified
