IU in the news

IU Doctors Pioneering Pancreas Transplants
Theindychannel.com, Sept. 6 -- A little-known option in the fight against diabetes is gaining national attention for an Indianapolis hospital where it's being touted as a cure for the disease. A pancreas transplant can all but eliminate type 1 diabetes, the kind that usually develops in children and young adults, doctors at Indiana University Hospital told 6News' Trisha Shepherd. "Once they get the transplant, basically, they're no longer diabetic," said Dr. Jonathan Friddell. Full story.

IU, Notre Dame offer car sharing service
Victoriaadvocate.com, Sept. 5 -- The college road trip is getting a little easier for some Indiana students without cars. Indiana University and the University of Notre Dame are partnering with Zipcar, a Massachusetts-based car-sharing service that allows students, faculty and others to rent a vehicle for as little as an hour or as long as a few days. Full story.

No reason to oppose public smoking bans
The Indianapolis Star, Sept. 7 -- A 2009 study by researchers from the Bowen Research Center of the Indiana University School of Medicine concluded that the overall cost of health care and premature loss of life attributed to secondhand smoke for Indiana residents in 2007 totaled more than $390 million. All credible economic studies show communities with comprehensive smoke-free workplace laws have not seen a negative impact on the hospitality industry or any other sector. Full story.

At Some Companies, Students Are Teaching
Wall Street Journal, Sept. 3 -- Businesses are looking to students to help them learn. Some of the top U.S. business schools have been teaming up with companies, including Urban Outfitters Inc. and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc., on programs in which students play the role of consultant—at little or no cost to the company. Students may work on identifying acquisition targets, assessing a market segment's viability or creating a business plan, among other topics, program directors said. At Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business and Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, the programs are free; others charge the company anywhere from $50,000 to $80,000. Full story.
