STAR Health is bringing health and wellbeing experts to campus for a new series ‘Conversations on Healthcare, Wellbeing and Prevention.’ Register in advance. Please join us for these upcoming conversations:
March 8 – Is this just a phase? Supporting the journey from childhood to adulthood
All parents can relate to the many changes their kids go through as they grow up. This session will help parents and health professionals make the best choices for children as they transition from childhood to adulthood. The discussion will cover a variety of health topics, including behavior, mental health, special needs and disabilities. We will identify respective resource services to support and encourage healthy and productive adulthood years.
April 26 – From stable to flourishing, redefining “good health”
Leaders in the health and prevention field will peel away the myths of “good health” and go through the essentials and importance of clinical practice guidelines.
July 12 – Lessons learned: A disastrous day of a patient
As a patient, you always expect quality, compassionate, comprehensive, culturally competent and convenient care. In reality, it does not always happen. This dynamic discussion will display a variety of healthcare settings from the lens of a patient. Patients, caregivers and providers will learn how to enhance the patient experience, and to prepare and advocate for better healthcare!
All conversations are open to the general public, University of Delaware employees and students. All sessions take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and are held in atrium of the STAR Health Sciences Complex (540 S College Ave, Newark, DE 19713). Please register in advance.
The series, which runs throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, is moderated by Former Cabinet Secretary of the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, Rita Landgraf.
