    February 1 Jim Kosinski “”Three Events that Shaped Maritime History”

    Jim Kosinski is a historian/researcher and volunteer at Channel Islands Maritime Museum.

    She has conducted research assessing the benefits of protected areas and community-based resource management to reef fish assemblages and artisanal fisheries in the Philippines, Fiji, Kenya and the Bahamas.

    Her ongoing research in the Cook Islands and California examines the ecological impacts of marine debris and microplastic debris on coastal ecosystems.

    Dedicated to providing research opportunities to undergraduate students, she is working with various student groups to explore educational and research experiences in the California coastal zone and at CSUCI’s undergraduate research station on Santa Rosa Island.

    Feb 15 Charles Watson “Alzheimer’s Patients”

    The stats about Alzheimer’s are staggering.  Some 5.8 million Americans are living with the disease. It’s the 6th leading cause of death in the US.  More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for Alzheimer’s or dementia patients. In 2019, Alzheimer’s and dementia will cost the nation $290 billion.

    Chuck Watson currently serves as the Executive Director of the Ventura County Brain Injury Center.  Not only does he teach nonprofit courses at CSUN and Phillips Graduate Institute but as Senior Vice president at the Oertel Group, he also provides training and technical assistance to such local organizations as the Center for Nonprofit Management and the Ventura County Community Foundation Resource Center.

    In his spare time, Chuck loves to referee soccer.  He was tapped as a referee for the USPSA, a national power wheelchair-assisted soccer program as well as the Special Olympics 2015 World Games.  Needless to say, he is an avid Manchester United fan.
