Peter Levine Presents Civic Life & Health Research, January 25


What is civic life, and why is it important to consider in clinical research? Understand the relevance of civic engagement to clinical and other health research at Civic Life and Health Research, a seminar by Peter Levine, PhD, Associate Dean and Lincoln Filene Professor of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Tufts University’s Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life.

Join us on Wednesday, January 25, 9:30-11:00AM in Sackler 216A (145 Harrison Ave., Boston) to get oriented to current research and debates about civic engagement in the US; challenge the frequent definition of civic engagement as professionals consulting stakeholders; and instead begin to see medical researchers and health professionals as citizens who should relate to other people as fellow citizens.

A life webcast will also be available. All are welcome! To register, click here.
