Jimmy Cooney is an Irish former hurler who played as a left corner-back for the Galway senior team. Born in Bullaun, County Galway, Cooney first arrived on the inter-county scene when he made his senior debut in the 1979 championship. Cooney went on to play a key part for Galway for a brief period, won one All-Ireland medal, he was an All-Ireland runner-up on one occasion. As a member of the Connacht inter-provincial team at various times, Cooney won one Railway Cup medal in 1980. At club level he is a one-time Connacht medallist with Sarsfields. In addition to this he won two championship medals. Throughout his career Cooney made 9 championship appearances, his retirement came following the conclusion of the 1982 championship. His brother, Joe had a lengthy career with Galway. In retirement from playing, Cooney became an inter-county referee, he is best remembered for blowing the full-time whistle five minutes early during the All-Ireland semi-final between Offaly and Clare in 1998, prompting Offaly fans to stage a sit down protest in Croke Park.

Clare were winning at the time, Offaly won the subsequent re-fixture. Cooney enjoyed much success at club hurling with Sarsfields. In 1980 Sarsfields qualified for the final of the senior championship for the first time in history, with Cooney lining out at midfield; the free-taking of Michael Mulkerrins secured a narrow 0–11 to 0–9 defeat of Meelick-Eyrecourt and a Galway Senior Hurling Championship medal for Cooney. He added a Connacht medal to his collection following a convincing 4–12 to 0–5 defeat of Tremane. A decade Sarsfields were back in the championship decider once again. A 3–7 to 1–8 defeat of Athenry gave Cooney a second championship medal. Three years in 1992 Cooney was in the twilight of his club career, he won an All-Ireland medal as a non-playing substitute following a 1–17 to 2–7 defeat of Kilmallock. Cooney made his senior championship debut for Galway on 1 July 1979 in a 1–23 to 3–10 defeat of Laois in the All-Ireland quarter-final, he was an unused substitute for the subsequent All-Ireland final defeat by Kilkenny.

In 1980 Cooney was a regular member of the starting fifteen as Galway reached the All-Ireland decider once again. Limerick provided the opposition on an exciting championship decider followed. Bernie Forde and P. J. Molloy goals for Galway meant that the men from the west led by 2–7 to 1–5 at half-time. Éamonn Cregan single-handedly launched the Limerick counter-attack in the second-half. Over the course of the game he scored 2–7, including an overhead goal and a point in which he showed the ball to full-back Conor Hayes and nonchalantly drove the ball over the bar, it was not enough to stem the tide and Galway went on to win the game by 2–15 to 3–9. It was Galway's first All-Ireland title since 1923, with Cooney picking up a winners' medal and the celebrations surpassed anything seen in Croke Park.1981 saw Galway reach a third consecutive All-Ireland final and Offaly were the opponents. Everything seemed to be going well for Cooney's side as Galway hoped to capture an unprecedented second consecutive All-Ireland title.

Offaly'keeper Damien Martin was doing great work in batting out an certain Galway goal early in the second-half. With twenty-three minutes left in the game Galway led by six points, they failed to score for the rest of the game. Johnny Flaherty hand-passed Offaly's second goal with just three minutes remaining. At the long whistle Galway were defeated by 2–12 to 0–15. Cooney's last game for Galway was an All-Ireland semi-final defeat by Kilkenny in 1982. Cooney lined out with Connacht in the inter-provincial series of games and enjoyed some success. In 1979 Cooney was at left wing-back. A 1–13 to 1–9 defeat by Leinster was the result on that occasion. Cooney retained his place on the team in 1980 as Connacht faced Railway Cup specialists Munster in the decider. A low-scoring game followed, however, a 1–5 to 0–7 victory gave Connacht their first Railway Cup title since 1947, it was Cooney's sole winners' medal in the inter-pro competition. In retirement from playing Cooney became an inter-county referee at the highest levels.

One of the biggest assignments in the early stages of his career was as referee for Limerick's 4–16 to 2–17 defeat of Kilkenny in the All-Ireland decider in the intermediate grade in 1998. On 22 August 1998, Cooney was assigned to referee the 1998 All-Ireland semi-final replay between Clare and Offaly at Croke Park; the match had been a uneventful one for Cooney until the 68th minute when he sounded the long whistle to end the match. Clare had won by 1–16 to 2–10, however, it was only that Cooney realised that he had ended the match two minutes early. Before he could restart the match he was bundled away by some security officials, while the Offaly supporters took to the Croke Park pitch to stage a sit-down protest. Offaly were subsequently granted a replay, which they won, while Cooney, who received death threats after the match, ended his inter-county refereeing career.

Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences

Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences is a private, non-profit, graduate school for the health professions, with a main campus located on 23 acres in Kansas City, in the U. S. state of Missouri. Founded in 1916, KCU is one of the original osteopathic medical schools in the United States and has an excellent reputation for its rigorous curriculum; the University consists of a College of Biosciences. KCU maintains one of the largest medical schools in the nation by enrollment. In 2017, KCU began welcoming medical students onto a second, brand new campus in Missouri; the University is currently in the process of developing and constructing a College of Dental Medicine on their Joplin campus. KCU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and recognized by the Coordinating Board of Higher Education for the Missouri Department of Higher Education; the College of Osteopathic Medicine is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association's Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation.

KCU opened in May 1916 as the Kansas City College of Surgery. At the time, it was the fifth osteopathic medical school to be established. In January 1921, the college moved its campus to the Northeast neighborhood, just east of downtown Kansas City. In 1940, the Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery took over the assets of the Central College of Osteopathy in Kansas City, Missouri. In November 1970, the name of the college was changed to the Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine, again in July 1980 to the University of Health Sciences. In 1999, KCU joined with seven other research institutions to form the Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute; as a founding partner, KCU has provided biomedical research opportunities within the greater Kansas City area. In 2004, the College of Biosciences opened and the university's name was changed to Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences; the first students in the College of Biosciences began coursework in the fall of 2005, working towards a one-year master's degree in biomedical sciences.

The College of Biosciences expanded the program to a two-year master's degree. In 2008, the college began offering a Master of Arts in bioethics. In 2009, the president of the university, Karen Pletz, pursued the possibility of offering a dual DO-MD degree; the idea of a dual DO-MD degree was controversial and raised concerns within the osteopathic medical community. Several leaders of the profession formally requested the option be abandoned. Pletz was subsequently fired, but refrained from discussing the details of her dismissal as a lawsuit was underway; the lawsuit and firing related to financial disagreements between the university. That day, Pletz filed a countersuit against the school for alleged wrongful termination. Pletz was indicted by federal prosecutors on March 31, 2011 for embezzling $1.5 million from KCU. Pletz committed suicide on November 22, 2011, in Fort Lauderdale, before the case went to trial. In January 2014, the university announced a $60 million expansion plan, which has since included a clinical training center, classrooms, a medical simulation building.

As part of this expansion, the university began construction of the Center for Medical Education Innovation on the Kansas City Campus in 2018. This $33 million dollar, 56,000 sq. foot facility will house state of the art standardized patient exam rooms, a skills simulation deck mimicing many hospital environments, an advanced osteopathic skills lab. The CMEI is expected to open its doors in 2020. In 2016, the university broke ground on a new state of the art medical campus in Joplin, Missouri, to house a second College of Osteopathic Medicine; the first class of medical students on the Joplin Campus began instruction in 2017. The university is working to expand the Joplin Campus to house a College of Dental Medicine with the goal of breaking ground on the new dental school in 2020 and welcoming its first class in 2022; this second campus in Joplin, was constructed in order to better meet the healthcare needs of middle America. The Kansas City Campus occupies the original site of Children's Mercy Hospital.

KCU offers graduate degrees in osteopathic medicine, biomedical sciences, clinical psychology and bioethics. Founded in 1916 as the university's inaugural program, the College of Osteopathic Medicine confers the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree; the College of Osteopathic Medicine is one of three medical schools in the United States to be recognized twice with the John Templeton Foundation's Spirituality in Medicine Curricular Award, which recognizes outstanding medical education curricula incorporating spirituality in medicine. KCU is one of three osteopathic medical schools nationwide working to enhance future physicians’ cultural competency and eliminate disparities in health care through a grant from the American Medical Student Association; the curriculum at KCU's College of Osteopathic Medicine consists of four years of structured training. The first two years are organized in clinical application-based curriculum; each system is repeated in years two. The first year focuses on normal structure and function, while the second year focuses on disease processes and clinical presentation.

Throughout years one and two, students have early clinical exposure in the curriculum through participation in Score 1 for Health, standardized patient encounters, human patient simulation. During years three and four, students are matched with a preceptor or at a hospital/ward at a KCU-affiliated clerkship site in various specialties of medicine and surgery. Students at KCU's
