SISTA Presents: Visual Backtracing - The Heart of Verification by Don Douglas, Toolbuilders
Tuesday, July 12, Socializing: 5:30 pm; Presentation: 6:00 pm
A Visual Backtrace is an algorithm for advanced visualization of statements effecting the size or value of the trace origin. It provides function and variable tracing through large volumes of code for the rapid determination of their value and size. It connects audited items all the way back to their declaration and follows them through all variable transformations including tracing entities across assignments, and complex function calls. There are a number of applications for Visual Backtrace, which apply to both development and quality assurance engineers. Common applications include debugging, maintenance, testing, and QA. All applications rely on the presentation of only the most relevant data for the efficient visualization and navigation.

.NET Users Group presents: Using Client Callbacks in ASP.NET 2.0
Wednesday, July 13, 2005 at 6:00 PM. Presented by Stephen Walther.
By taking advantage of client callbacks -- a new feature of the ASP.NET 2.0 framework -- you can update the contents of a page without posting the page back to the Web server. In this code intensive talk, Stephen Walther explains how client callbacks are used by the new ASP.NET 2.0 TreeView, GridView, and DetailsView controls. He also demonstrates how you can integrate client callbacks in your custom controls. "During the course of this talk, we build several custom controls including a simple Chat control and ComboBox control which communicate dynamically with a Web server."

WSU Spokane Research Stresses Importance of Screening for Type 2 Diabetes
A study completed by the Center for International Health Services Research and Policy based at WSU Spokane stresses the importance in the U.S. health system of screening for diabetes type 2 management and prevention. A paper on the study, published in the April 2005 issue of the international journal Disease Management and Health Outcomes, was authored by assistant professor of health policy and administration Fevzi Akinci; Center director and health policy professor Joseph Coyne; Joni Minear, a graduate of the masters program in health policy; WSU Spokane assistant professor and Center post-doctoral fellow Kenn Daratha, and current health policy graduate student Dan Simonson.

The study assessed the association between four preventive diabetes screenings (retinal eye exams, HbA1c testing, lipid testing and albumin testing) within the study period, and health services utilization patterns for a two-year follow-up period. Patients who received lipids testing showed a significant overall decrease in inpatient service utilization during the results study period. Further, recommended screenings of retinal eye exams and albumin testing were associated with an increase in outpatient utilization in the subsequent two years. Lower inpatient utilization and/or higher outpatient services are considered a positive outcome.
