Lecture series at the School of Nursing and Health Studies

By UM News
The Fall Lecture series explores topics on accelerated resolution therapy treatments, pain management, and psychological stressor solutions.

The School of Nursing and Health Studies will kick off a new lecture series with a talk by Dr. Kevin E. Kip, a professor of epidemiology at the University of South Florida, about findings that indicate that accelerated resolution therapy (ART), an innovative and rapid treatment for psychological trauma, is a suitable treatment for a significant and growing population of veterans who are coping from the effects of brain injuries and PTSD.

The series continues this fall with lectures by Dr. Huda Abu-Saad Huijer, founding Dean of the Hariri School of Nursing at American University of Beirut in Lebanon and Dr. Alan Finnegan, Professor of Nursing and Military Mental Health (MMH) and Director of the Westminster Centre for Research in Ageing, Mental Health and Veterans at the University of Chester, England.

“The public health experts featured in the Fall Lecture Series are conducting research that impact millions of people in various sectors of society, from pain management to dealing with stress in the workplace. We look forward to engaging with them and hearing about the educational advances resulting from their research,” said Cindy Munro, dean of the School of Nursing and Health Studies.

The series will be hosted at the M. Christine Schwartz Center for Nursing and Health Studies Simulation Hospital Auditorium - 2nd Floor at 9:00 a.m. on Sept. 13, Oct. 15, and Nov. 5.
