Please mark your calendar to attend the Chancellor’s Research Symposium on Population Health and Wellness during 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, April 18, in the Multi-Purpose Room on the main level of the Campus Center.

 

Optimizing the health of populations is a critical issue in the United States and worldwide. It is a complex problem that requires collaboration among diverse sectors—health care, government, business, education, media, and communities—to address prevalent population health problems such as asthma, diabetes, obesity, and racial and socioeconomic disparities in a range of mental and physical health outcomes.

 

Our symposium will feature the following Rutgers University–Camden faculty members who will present their research on topics pertaining to this area:

 

Dr. Janice Beitz (professor, nursing)

Dr. Gwendolyn Harris (executive director, Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs)

Dr. Carol Kaufman-Scarborough (professor, marketing)

Dr. Charlotte Markey (professor, psychology)

Dr. Margaret Marsh (University Professor, history)

Dr. Carol Wallinger (clinical professor, law and nursing)

 

Following the presentations will be a panel discussion in which our faculty experts will discuss key population health issues and strategies to address them. You will have the opportunity to ask questions of the participants during an open forum following the panel discussion. Refreshments will be served.

 

Additional information about these faculty researchers and their presentations, and the panel discussion topics, will be made available during the coming weeks.  Please plan on attending this highly informative event that will showcase Rutgers University–Camden’s research innovations in this crucial field.

 

I look forward to seeing you there.
