2020 Shields Lecture
The Shields Lecture Series honors William and Kathryn Shields, who established an endowed chair at IU South Bend's School of Nursing, and endowed scholarships in nursing and technology, as well as a fund that supports continuing nursing education.
Health Disparities through the Broader Lens: An Historical View, the 2020 Shield’s Lecture will present an historical perspective of current health disparities faced by the African American, LGBTQ, Native American, and Latinx communities and will feature a keynote presentation from Lynn Todman, PhD, Executive Director of Population Health for Spectrum Health Lakeland. Knowing the accurate history of traditionally marginalized groups, the ongoing effects of that history, and practical implications to practice will empower health care students and today’s health care professionals to engage as change agents of the future. Other speakers include Paul-René Tamburro, PhD, Abenaki Indian First Nation; Jennifer Faulkner-Jones, MSEd, Mental Wellness Specialist in Gender and Sexuality; James Gingerich, MD, Founder and CEO of Maple City Health Center and Vista Community Health Center; and Darryl Heller, PhD, Director of the IUSB Civil Rights Heritage Center.
The event will take place on Friday, March 27, 2020 from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm EST at Riverside Terrace 426 Lincolnway E Mishawaka, IN 46544.
Seating is limited and pre-registration is required for all attendees except IUSB Nursing Students. Costs: Students $25, Professionals $50 (CEs available)
