$6 per person

Nancy Hanrahan, RN, FAAN, Dean and Professor, Scool of Nursing; Associate Dean, Bouvé College of Health Sciences

Nurses strive to make a meaningful impact on the complex tangle of healthcare policies, procedures, and treatments that affect their patients. How are these ideas developed? The Nurse Innovation and Entrepreneurship program at Northeastern empowers nurses to lead innovation that transforms health systems using data, redesigns the healthcare experience of patients and families, and engages patients in health behavior change. Dr. Hanrahan and Rebecca Love, MS’08, will speak about this new initiative on campus.

Wednesday, June 7

Charles Hillman, Professor, Psychology and Health Sciences, College of Science, Bouvé College of Health Sciences

Children have become increasingly inactive, and subsequently more overweight and unfit. Particularly troubling is the absence of public health concern for the effect of poor health behaviors on cognitive and brain health. Professor Hillman will discuss his research program that has investigated the relation of healthy behaviors and physiological responses to cognitive and brain health during preadolescent childhood. Find out how this will implicate the educational environment and the context of learning.
