Plant Shift Initiative Speaker Series | Business & Media

Through media and marketing, corporations have pushed the burden of climate change and environmental justice onto consumers even though they are the driving forces behind climate change. While everyone can make personal choices towards sustainability and environmental justice, businesses are rarely pushed to reevaluate their production lines for more earth-conscious methods. Listen to business leaders on how they have strategized and supported companies making environmentally friendly decisions.

An Apple A Day: Reimagining Health Education for the Future

At Bouvé College of Health Sciences, our vision is to shape and drive the transformation of healthcare to health span. This proactive, people-centered approach to health contrasts with the more reactive style dominating much of today’s healthcare system. The focus is on care not cure, wellness, not sickness.

This requires preparing health leaders, clinicians, advocates, researchers, educators and innovators to think and act differently, to innovate and collaborate across disciplines and specialties.

In this panel discussion between Bouvé College Dean Carmen Sceppa and Ama Donkor, BHS’17, MPH’18, CPH, Marsha Maurer, BHS’86, Azita Razzaghi, BHS’88, PharmD’91, and Haley Waud, BHS’12, DPT’13, we examined the changing landscape of health education by asking our alumnae to reflect on their journeys from Bouvé to the present and the skills, training, and experience that have helped them make an impact.

The Plastic Brain; Injury and Repair

The rise in mental health conditions globally is staggering, affecting people of all demographics, having impacts on almost all areas of life, and incurring a global annual cost of nearly $1 Trillion US Dollars.

Hear from Dean Hazel Sive for a panel discussion with psychology professors Susan Whitfield-Gabrieli and Craig Ferris to discuss novel approaches to mental illness and how neuroscience may hold the key to bringing fundamental changes in how patients with mental illnesses are diagnosed and treated. Learn about new research which may be instrumental in early detection and prevention, and in the development of new therapies and interventions.
