Google Lecture Series: Victor Stecher on new directions in health informatics

When: (tomorrow) Friday, March 29th, 2013 from 3:30-5 pm

Where: Due to the North Quad flood, this lecture has been moved to Space 2435 (…also in North Quad).
3100 North Quad – Ehrlicher Room (see this post for more detailed directions to finding the Ehrlicher Room)
Join Victor Strecher (my 2 cents: a truly phenomenal lecturer from when he spoke in my Health Informatics course last semester) discussing “On Purpose: A New Direction for Health and Health Informatics“:

Long-held assumptions and beliefs about life, death, disease, health, and risk — subjects on which Strecher has been writing and speaking for years — are questioned.  This presentation takes a journey through ancient and modern philosophy, literature, psychology, genetics, neuroscience, and Egyptology, where you will be introduced to an unlikely role model:  a six-legged superhero with a unique relationship to a ball of excrement.  In the presentation, Strecher will also preview a platform of multimedia strategies designed to help people make meaningful changes in their lives.
